The New Orleans Pelicans have gone from cold, to hot, back to freezing. The LA Clippers have gone from one of the best teams in the NBA to a slumping group looking to prove they still belong in the top-tier of the brutal Western Conference.
These two face off Saturday night at 10:30 p.m. ET.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans were lost to start the 2016-17 season. They didn’t have Jrue Holiday, and they were hands down one of the worst teams in the Association.
Then Holiday returned, and all was right with the world. New Orleans won four in a row at one point, including five of six.
Nobody was going to believe this was a playoff squad in the making, but there was hope that not all was lost for both the immediate and long-term future.
Here’s the catch: That didn’t last.
Entering this contest against the Clippers, New Orleans has lost six of its last seven games, including the last four in a row.
One of those losses came to this same Clippers squad they’ll face on Saturday, 114-96.
Unlike the Pelicans, Los Angeles got out to an incredible start. The problem is that like New Orleans, L.A. has seen the script flip.
In their last seven games, the Clippers are just 2-5. They did collect wins against these Pelicans, as well as the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers, but there are a number of bad losses on the recent schedule that make you wonder about the legitimacy of this squad.
For example, nobody is going to question a blowout loss to the Golden State Warriors. However, the 115-98 loss on Wednesday came in a contest that saw the Dubs shoot worse than 30 percent from the three-point line.
Luckily for LA, the current-day Pelicans seem like a good squad for a confidence booster.
