Game 7: DeMarcus Cousins adamant about Golden State Warriors beating New Orleans Pelicans

Can Anthony Davis lead the Pels to a surprise upset?

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Brooklyn Nets Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

In theory, tonight’s matchup between the New Orleans Pelicans and Golden State Warriors is just one game out of 82 on the schedule. In reality, it’s much bigger than that and for a wide range of reasons!

Undoubtedly, playing the world champs is fun and a great litmus test. Having Anthony Davis return to action — it sounds like he’s good to go — gives New Orleans a puncher’s chance against the best in the land. Oh, and did you hear about DeMarcus Cousins issuing a challenge to his new teammates, ‘Beat the Pelicans for me!?’

You see, Boogie remains unhappy with the New Orleans Pelicans franchise and a lot of his angst is pointed at Dell Demps and the rest of the front office for not re-signing him to a big contract this past offseason. Twitter likes cannot tell a lie!
