New Orleans Pelicans
The New Orleans Pelicans are one of the most talented teams in the NBA right now, but their record has yet to show they are worthy of becoming a good team. The Pelicans beat the Pistons their last game, and are 2-3 over the last five games.
The Pelicans played well against the Pistons, scoring 112 points against Detroit. New Orleans was led by Anthony Davis, who finished the game with 30 points and 10 Rebounds. DeMarcus Cousins also had a solid game, finishing with 20 points and 10 rebounds.
The Pelicans should remember the first time playing against the Grizzlies this season. They were beaten by 12 points in Memphis. Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins combined for 61 points and 28 rebounds in the loss. The Pelicans could be without Davis in this matchup.
Defensively, the Pelicans are one of the worst teams in the NBA this season. New Orleans ranks 28th in the NBA this year in points allowed at 110.9 points per game this season.
New Orleans will not have to worry about Mike Conley in this matchup. Conley had 27 points in the first meeting.
The Memphis Grizzlies are bad this season. The year started well for Memphis but after guard Mike Conley went down, the team took a step backwards. There were rumblings of Marc Gasol and former head coach David Fizdale not seeing eye to eye, which led to Fizdal’s dismissal. These events, have led to the team being one of the worst in the Western conference this year.
The Grizzlies won the first matchup against New Orleans, on the strength of Mike Conely. Rookie Dillon Brooks played well finishing with 18 points. The Grizzlies shot 42 percent from the field and 31 percent from three point land against Memphis in the win.
This game is going to be different from the first game of the year. Memphis has a new coach and will be without guard Mike Conley for the year. He is out with an Achilles injury. The one thing the Grizzlies can do, is play defense. The team is allowing 102.4 points per game this year.

Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
The Pelicans are going to own the paint, but without Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins is going to need a big game scoring in order for the Pelicans to pull of the win.
Memphis is playing with a nothing to lose mentality. With tanking being the option for the Grizzlies this season, expect Memphis to play hard defensively, but lack scoring power.
