This game features the Pelicans traveling to Memphis to square off against the Grizzlies.
After snapping a 4 game losing streak the Pelicans have gone 3-2 in their last 5. Memphis is also winners of 3 of their last 5.
The Grizzlies have won 7 in a row, the last 3 being wins in overtime.
New Orleans Pelicans
After a poor 12 point, 10 rebound performance against Utah a week ago, Anthony Davis has been a tear. The last 3 games have seen Davis put up 42, 32, and 24 points respectively. He has also grabbed 10 or more rebounds in each game.
Putting up 4 straight double doubles heading into the All Star break should propel Davis for the second half of the season. The two contests against the Grizzlies so far this year have seen Davis put up 10 points and 7 rebounds in the first game, and 28 and 16 in game 2.
Against Zach Randolph and company I expect Davis to put up numbers similar to game 2, as he should finish with 25 points and 11 rebounds on the night.
Jrue Holliday has put up remarkable numbers for the Pelicans during this current stretch of games. Holliday is scoring efficiently and dishing the ball to teammates as well, getting 7 or more assists in 8 of the last 10 games.
He will have a tough matchup against Mike Conley, who I believe is an underrated defender, and did not play in either meeting so far this season. Look for Jrue to get 17 points and 9 assists in this one.
The New Orleans defense continues to be a sore spot for the team,as they have given up 100 points in 13 straight games, heightened by the 143 they gave up to the Nets at the start of this streak. I expect it to easily become 14 in a row.
Marc Gasol has been consistent if not spectacular for the Grizzlies during the last couple of games. In the Memphis win on Monday night against the Nets Gasol nearly got a triple double.
He scored 19 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and dished out 8 assists. He can put the team on his back and score when called upon, and with a poor Pelicans defense he can easily lead the game in scoring tonight.
Mike Conley has been dominating his opposition at the point guard spot over the last few Grizzlies games. He beat up on the poor Nets roster to the tune of 32 points and 6 assists. This performance came after he had 20 points and 9 assists in a loss to the Warriors.
Conley shouldn’t have any issues against Holliday and I look for him to get 18 points and 8 assists when the final buzzer sounds.
Zach Randolph provides a veteran spark off the bench on both ends of the floor. He followed up a great game against the Warriors (17 points 13 rebounds), with a dud against Brooklyn (7 points and 3 boards).
Which Randolph will you see in this one? I believe Randolph will put up big numbers against Anthony Davis, and the reserves on the Pelicans front line.
