New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans got their first win of the year last night against the Los Angeles Lakers, 119-112. Finally able to get the first win of the year under their belts, the Pelicans should feel relieved coming into this game.
Anthony Davis led the Pelicans in last nights win. He had 27 points and 17 rebounds, on 9 of 16 shooting from the floor. DeMarcus Cousins also played well. He added 22 points and 11 boards in the win.

Defensively, the Pelicans have not been good. They are allowing 114 points per game through their first three games of the year. Hopefully for the Pelicans sake, it’s because the team is a little out of shape.
Expect the Davis and Cousins duo to give the Trail Blazers issues in the paint. The two big me are averaging 58 points per game combined. Davis (31.7ppg) and Cousins (26.3 ppg).
Portland Trail Blazers
The Trail Blazers are off to a good start. At 2-1, Portland will play at home for the first time this year. The Blazers do it all guard combo of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum should not disappoint in the home opener.
McCuollum looks to have turned into the scoring machine he has proven to be over the past few season. So far, McCollum has been lighting it up through three games. Averaging 27 points per game this year.
Damian Lillard has also been explosive. He is averaging 23.7 points per game this year for Portland. The Trail Blazers have beaten the Suns and Pacers so far, but fell in their most recent game to the Bucks, 113-110.
Portland had played solid defense the first three games of the year. They are allowing a little over 95 points per game this season.
