New Orleans was a fast starter this season but they have really fallen off in the West. They better get this one.
Cleveland is terrible with no signs for any improvement in the short term other than being more healthy.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pels have been terrible on the road and have sunk to last place in the division. They are nearly healthy but still missing Niko Mirotic.
They still have Anthony Davis and he is still awesome but even that might no be for too much longer, unless they know they can sign him. He might be enough in this one.
They got Elfrid Payon back and even though I don’t get it he has been good. He definitely is giving them more depth and surprising scoring too.
Julius Randle was good for the Lakers last season but this season he has been even better. He has shown he can step up when the occasion demands it too.
If the Pelicans are going to get back in the race in the Western Conference they have to start winning games like these.
Cleveland has lost seven in a row and most were of the blowout variety. Welcome to 2019 Cavs fans. It is worse then expected.
They did get a couple of key cogs back recently in Tristan Thompson and Rodney Hood. Neither could them back in the win column but they should make them more respectable.
Colin Sexton is playing like a typical rookie, taking bad shots often and not really playing within whatever system they are trying. Seems like typical one and done stuff.
