New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans are right in the middle of the crowd in the Western Conference playoff picture. They’ve lost two in a row and are only two games ahead of the 9th-seed.
The schedule has been rough lately but they are almost through. This game will be tough because LeBron James has started his playoff push early this season. They will host OKC before getting two gimmes against Memphis and Phoenix.
After that, the schedule finishes at Golden State (Durant and Klay should be back), at the Clippers and then home against San Antonio.
So if there’s a team that could slide, it may just be the Pelicans. Anthony Davis is at the height of his powers but he must be wearing down, even if just a little bit. This will be an important game for them.
The Cavaliers continued to play without Kyle Korver last night in Charlotte. Kevin Love also missed the game after admitting to the NBA’s concussion protocol.
It wasn’t a problem for the Cavs, who dominated the whole way before letting Kemba Walker become Charlotte’s all-time leading scorer in garbage time. LeBron had 41/10/8 and I’m just wondering if he’s decided to play his hardest just a little too soon.
Korver has been bereaved but I imagine he should be back soon. He spoke at his younger brother’s funeral earlier this week and we can only wish him the best as he returns to the team for the home stretch, whenever that may be.
Love’s situation is a little more unknown. Jaylen Brown recently missed two weeks with what looked like a fairly serious concussion. The Celtics weren’t in any rush to get Brown back, though.
Love was just starting to get his legs back after coming back from his prior injury that kept him out just short of two months. With all of the Cavs’ new pieces and the comings and goings of all sorts of players due to injury or other situations, Cleveland wants to unify down the stretch here, much more than it cares about whether its the 3-seed or the 4.
