Wednesday, January 23 finds the Detroit Pistons facing the. New Orleans Pelicans as they meet for the second time in the 2018-19 regular season. Both squads played in the NBA special slate of Martin Luther King Jr. Day slate with the Pistons getting routed by the Wizards 101-87 and the short-handed Pelicans defeated the Grizzlies 105-85.
Last season, New Orleans took both games and won the initial meeting this year. The Pelicans hold the all-time record having bested the Pistons in 22 of their 36 matches.
Only two Pistons managed to score in double digits in the loss to the Wizards. Blake Griffin scored 29 points to lead his squad adding four assists and nine rebounds.
Reggie Bullock was the only other Piston hitting his mark with 12 points. Dwane Casey played 13 different players in the loss.
Detroit has just four wins in their last 14 games which points to the team’s early strength of schedule to start the season. Now that they are playing more road games and back to back sets their flaws are glaring.
Andre Drummond remains in the NBA concussion protocol program having missed the last two games and it is questionable for the match versus the Pelicans on Wednesday.
Henry Ellenson (left ankle sprain) is also questionable. Ish Smith (groin) has also missed the past two games with adductor tightness and is doubtful for Wednesday.
New Orleans Pelicans
Despite missing Davis on Monday, the Pelicans pulled together to capture a much needed victory. Four players registered 20 or more points in the win.
Jrue Holiday and Nikola Mirotic scored 21 points while Julius Randle and Jahlil Okafor chipped in with 20 points.
Anthony Davis suffered an injury to his left index finger and while the team initially said he would be re-evaluated in a week or two Davis’ agent said they will seek alternative opinions on the exact nature of his injury. Subsequently, Davis will definitely miss the game on Wednesday.
