The Atlanta Hawks visit visit Louisiana to face the New Orleans Pelicans, in an early season non-conference matchup. The Atlanta Hawks are struggling this season, losers of their last three games in a row.
The New Orleans Pelicans are one game above .500 this year, and have won four of their last five games, most recently beating the Clippers, 111- 103.
The last time these two teams faced each other, was last season. The Hawks won last January, 99-94 at home. The Hawks and Pelicans split the series, 1-1. The teams beat each other on their home courts last year.
The Atlanta Hawks are looking to turn things around, but I don’t think the Hawks have what it takes to get back on track this year. Atlanta is 2-11 on the season. Sitting nine games under .500 in the East means the Hawks are probably in the running for worst team in the NBA.
The Hawks won their most recent game, at Washington, 113-94. Taurean Prince led the team with 19 points. Marco Belinelli added 15 points off the bench. Dewayne Dedmond and Kent Bazemore had 13 points each to pace the Hawks.
Despite last night’s win, the Hawks are still terrible. The team is still trying to find an identity. Dennis Schroder has been the Hawks leading scorer this season.
He is averaging 20.6 points per game this year, but in my opinion, is not a first scoring option in the NBA.
Atlanta rookie Taurean Prince is averaging 13.6 points and 5.2 rebounds this year. Even with the quick development of Prince, the team still seems like they aren’t running set plays. Head Coach Mike Budenholzer is not the answer at head coach.
Atlanta is in a rebuild this year at every position, including head coach. Hopefully for the Hawks, the Pelicans will have an off night.
New Orleans Pelicans
The New Orleans Pelicans are starting to find their way together. New Orleans has won four of five. Including their last game against the Clippers by eight points.
Big men Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins are playing like the dominant forces they are this year. With Anthony Davis averaging 27 points and 12 rebounds this year, the team is on the right track.
Davis is on his way to the all star game again this season, and will be joined this year by teammate, DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins is usually the most non talked about ( in a good way) NBA player for all the wrong reasons.
This season in New Orleans, Cousins is looking like the best true big man in the league. He is averaging 28.3 points, 13.8 rebounds and 5.7 assists this season.
If the Pelicans can continue to win games and stay relevant in the Western Conference, Cousins or Davis could be in the conversation for this years league MVP award.

Free Atlanta Hawks vs. New Orleans Pelicans NBA Prediction:
The Atlanta Hawks are terrible, and will be in trouble on the road in this one. Atlanta does not have the bodies to stop Cousins and Davis in the painted area. Atlanta will rely heavily on Schroder to do most scoring tonight
This game has blowout potential. New Orleans is clearly the better NBA team right now. The Pelicans have two true big men combining to average 55 points and 36 rebounds per game this year.
