Well the Pelicans have not gotten off to a very good start, as they are only 1 of 2 teams in the league that have yet to win.
They have played a few close games as of late and in their last game they only lost to the Golden State Warriors by 10 points.
The Kings snapped their 4-game losing streak with a 96-91 win over a solid Toronto Raptors team in their last game.
Last season the Pelicans won all 4 games facing the Kings.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans rank 20th in the league in points per game and 24th in opponents’ points allowed.
In suffering their 7th straight loss to open the season against the Warriors New Orleans did shoot 48.8% from the floor, but they allowed Golden State to shoot 50% from the field, 45.7% from beyond the 3-point arc, and they committed 20 turnovers.
In the loss to Golden State the Pelicans allowed reigning MVP Steph Curry to set a NBA record with 13 3-pointers. Needless to say NO has to defend the long ball better in this game.
Anthony Davis had another big game going for 33 points and 13 boards and he ranks 5th in the league in scoring.
Only 2 other players had double digits in the loss to Golden State and somebody has to step up and help the big man, as the 0-7 start has shown he cannot do it all himself.
Starters Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans are still out and neither has played in a game this season.
The Pelicans are 0-3 on the road this season.
The Kings 24th in the league in points per game and 16th in opponents’ points per game.
In their win over Toronto, which was north of the border by the way, the Kings did not have the best shooting night, but they played great D holding the Raptors to 35.7% shooting.
The Kings won the Raptors’ game playing solid defense and in their 4-game losing streak they had given up an average of 108 ppg.
DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay combined for 45 points in the win over Toronto, but they finally got some help with 2 other starters going for at least 12 points each.
Cousins and Gay are the only players that are averaging in double figures at 25.5 ppg and 22.6 ppg respectively.
However, Sacto should get some help in the scoring department, as Darren Collison’s 8-game suspension is over and last season he averaged 14 ppg.
The Kings are 1-1 at home this season and this game marks their first home game after a 5-game road trip.
