Incredibly this is only the second time the Kings and Pelicans have played this season with the Pelicans winning the nailbiter 117-115.
Each team has played three of their seeding games and between them have a single win to show for it — that being the Pelicans win over the Grizzlies.
New Orleans Pelicans
Despite entering the seeding games with the easiest strength of schedule the Pelicans haven’t resembled the team who was feasting in the scrimmages.
They still have a shot at the play-in tournament, however, they have work to do. Despite beating Memphis they trail them by two games.
Portland is a game ahead in ninth and Pels are tied with the Spurs but seeded behind them.
New Orleans also has to worry about the Cinderella Suns who’ve yet to lose a seeding game and now are only a half-game behind them.
Fortunately for the Pels, they got a contest versus the Grizz right at the perfect time as that matchup is one they’ve owned.
Zion Williamson still looks gassed far too often for someone that young and it’s hard to comprehend how he gains weight so rapidly but at least he was on the floor in clutch time versus Memphis.
Zion (23 points) and Brandon Ingram (24 points) delivered almost identical lines with five assists and seven rebounds.
J.J. Redick (16), Jrue Holiday (15), and Josh Hart (15) were the other double-figure contributors.
The Kings are one of three teams yet to win a seeding game having gone 0-3. The other two teams are the Memphis Grizzlies and Washington Wizards who’ve each lost four games.
Sacramento came the closest to netting their first win in the last match versus the Dallas Mavericks in the 114-119 overtime loss.
De’Aaron Fox was the only starter to break double figures and led his team in scoring with 28 points as well as nine assists and three rebounds.
The other double-figure contributors all came off the bench including Buddy Hield (21), Kent Bazemore (16), and Nemanja Bjelica (12).
