New Orleans Pelicans
The New Orleans Pelicans have had a very up and down season, that has turned out to be quite disappointing.
They are currently going through another downward turn. They are 1-5 in their last six games with their only win coming against the Suns.
A lot of their problems as of late have come on the defensive side of the ball. They have given up at least 103 points in their last 11 games.
Now they are a good offensive team, scoring 103.1 points per game but when they have given up at least that much every game for the last month, it’s really hard to win many games.
For the Pelicans to win they need to play better on the defensive side of the ball. The Timberwolves can score too and this game could get ugly quick if the Pelicans don’t play some sort of defense.
Away from home this season the Pelicans are 6-18.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are still trying to figure out life without Zach LaVine. The Timberwolves come into this game having gone 1-4 in their last five games.
It could have easily be 0-5 if the Timberwolves wouldn’t have made a frantic push back against the Raptors and won the game in the final minute.
In that game the Timberwolves played horrible most of the first half on the defensive side of the ball. They really hunkered down in the second half on the defensive side of the ball and made a big come back. Tyus Jones hit a three pointer with 14 seconds left to win the game.
For the Wolves to win they need to shut down Anthony Davis. If Karl Anthony-Towns has the better game between the two big men, the Wolves have a great shot to win the game.
At home this season the Wolves are 13-16.
