New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans gave up 128 points in Brooklyn on Saturday night and still won by double-digits.
Anthony Davis had 44 points, 17 rebounds, six steals and three blocks. He joined Bob McAdoo as the only player to post multiple games of 40 points, 15 rebounds and five steals in a career, at least since they started tracking steals in the 70s.
Rajon Rondo shot 11-for-16 and scored 25 points to go along with 12 assists. Jrue Holliday had 22 and Nikola Mirotic had 21. The Nets, meanwhile, chucked 59 threes in a game that did go to overtime, if that soothes your heart just a bit.
New Orleans has Sunday off to get to Detroit while the Pistons play a home game. It feels like these are the only sorts of games New Orleans is going to win because it just doesn’t play much defense.
That said, the Pistons will run with you if you set that pace and on the back-to-back, this could be a good time to take advantage of some sore legs on the home team.
Andre Drummond can handle a lot of big guys, defensively. I’m not so sure what he will do with Anthony Davis.
Davis could give him trouble off the bounce. He had 30 points in 27 minutes before leaving with an injury a little over a month ago when these two teams played in New Orleans. DeMarcus Cousins lifted the Pelicans to victory from there.
Cousins obviously isn’t available these days. It’s the Pistons with the all-star front court now. Blake Griffin probably won’t be blocking many shots with Nikola Mirotic on the three-point arc. He will have to stay glued to the perimeter.
That will open things up for Davis, who might put on another clinic and this time finish it for 40 minutes.
Then again, Griffin should be able to have his way with Mirotic on the other end of the floor, too. All in all, I think both offenses have tremendous mismatches to exploit and that this game can’t be totaled high enough.
