New Orleans searches for their first win of the season when they head into Memphis on Wednesday night.
Memphis will be in the 2nd leg of their back to back, as they were knocked around by Minnesota on Tuesday.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans 0-4 start is nothing new to them, but it’s quite alarming.
Last season they had the injuries to blame it on. However, to start this season off at 0-4 with your star player doing almost everything right isn’t the most ideal situation.
F Anthony Davis has had 35 points or more in 3 of the 4 games this season for New Orleans, but the supporting cast just isn’t helping the cause.
Davis finished with 35 points and 15 rebounds, but a 117-113 decision went the Bucks way on Tuesday.
Despite putting up well over 100 points in a pair of games this season, the Pelicans defense has been the reasoning behind their early struggles.
A lot of wide open looks and easy transition baskets have the Pelicans allowing big runs in games.
Slowing down the pace may be the best option for this team, as they simply do not have the players to keep up on the defensive end.
The Grizzlies showed off their age a bit on Tuesday, as they simply couldn’t keep up with the young guns from the Grizzlies.
Coming off injuries and surgeries, the Grizzlies decided to rest Mike Conley and Marc Gasol, getting them set for their 4th game in 5 nights.
With the duo sitting, Tony Allen did come back and make his season debut, as he recovers from a knee injury.
Allen finished with 4 points and 4 rebounds in 19 minutes.
The key tonight will be to take care of the basketball. With Conley out, the offense looked careless and force way too many passes against the Timberwolves.
Accounting for 22 turnovers, Memphis will have to certainly not continue to give possessions away here on Wendesday.
