New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans were working on a three game win streak before they lost to San Antonio the last time they took the court. They are currently sitting as the 10th seed in the Western Conference playoff race. While there is still plenty of basketball to be played, the Pelicans need to start playing more consistent basketball if they are going to not only make the playoffs, but be a contender.
The offense is lighting up the scoreboard, putting up an average of 119.6 points per game. This is ranked 2nd in the league. They are also shooting extremely well from the field, coming in at 48.3% from the field.
The Pelicans are even ranked 2nd with 27.3 assists per game and 5th with 48.2 rebounds per game. Their offense is obviously playing well and is something they need to continue if they are going to become a playoff team.
The main problem the Pelicans are having falls on their defense. They allow an average of 117.1 points per game. Not only do they allow a ton of points every single game, but they also have had trouble contesting their opponents shots. Opponents shoot an average of 46.3%. It is very hard to consistently win games in the NBA nowadays when you are unable to shut down your opponents shooting. This in turn is why they are sitting at just one game over .500.
The Washington Wizards have had a very poor start to the 2018-2019 season and are sitting as the 11th seed in the Eastern Conference.
Their offense seems to be inconsistent so far through a few weeks. They are averaging 111.8 points per game, but it would seem they go through stretches where they struggle to keep pace with their opponents.
Bradley Beal and John Wall are the leaders of this team and will both need to have a huge game if the Wizards are going to beat the Pelicans. Beal is averaging a team high 21.8 points per game and Wall is right behind him at 21.5 points per game. Wall is also leading in assists for the Wizards averaging 7.9 per game.
