Two expected bottom feeders in their respective conferences meet on Wednesday when the New Orleans Pelicans head into Orlando.
The Pelicans come in off a win for just the 2nd time this season, while the Magic fell 3 games below the .500 mark with a loss last time out.
New Orleans Pelicans
It’s been extremely rare for the Pelicans to have something to build off of.
New Orleans will try for back to back wins for the first time all season when they take on the Orlando Magic on Wednesday.
The Pelicans took down Boston 106-105, as F Anthony Davis finally got some support.
Anthony Davis finished with 25 points, 16 rebounds, 4 steals, and 2 blocks, while Terrance Jones stepped up in support.
Jones recorded a double-double and Langston Galloway put up 21 points in the win.
This is what the Pelicans need every single night. Anthony Davis is going to put up big numbers almost on a regular basis. However, he can’t do it on his own.
If Jones and Galloway, among others, can step up and continue to help the cause, this Pelicans team could find themselves in the win column much more often.
The Magic’s inconsistencies were certainly shown over their last 2 games.
After putting up what was easily their best performance of the season in a 119-117 win over the Thunder, Orlando scored just 69 points against the Pacers.
Center Nikola Vucevic has been one of the guys in particular who has struggled as of late. Vucevic finished just 1 for 10 from the field and is 5 for 32 over his last 3 contests.
Look for Vucevic to step up here, as he was the main reason behind the 2 game season series sweep of the Pelicans last year for Orlando. The center finished with 25 points per game against the Pelicans.
F Serge Ibaka should have the same mindset here to attack the glass, as he comes in off his first double digit rebound performance of the season. Ibaka grabbed 13 rebounds on Monday, as he was attack the hoop offensively for rebounds, while not allowing any 2nd chances on the other end.
