New Orleans Pelicans
Experts thought coming into the season that this Pelicans team was probably a playoff team. It looks like another year is going to come and go, and the Pelicans will miss the playoffs again.
The Pelicans are 3-7 over their last ten games and have lost three straight coming into this game.
Anthony Davis has had an excellent season once again but the supporting cast around him just isn’t good enough for this team to win games consistently.
Another problem the Pelicans have had this season is turning over the ball. They turn the ball over a lot, and that leads to a lot of points for the opponents.
For the Pelicans to win they need the players around Anthony Davis to step up, and the team needs to stop turning over the rock.
The Pelicans have struggled on the road this season, registering a record of 6-17.
One of the hottest teams in the NBA is the Washington Wizards. They have won 14 of their last 16 games and protect their home court like no other.
They have won 17 straight games at the Verizon Center.
After a very slow start and people wondering if Scott Brooks was the answer for this team, it sure seems like people have their answers.
The Wizards are a very good team on the offensive side of the ball. They average 107 points per game well shooting 47.6 percent from the field.
They are led on that side of the ball by All Star John Wall. He is averaging 23 points, 10.3 assists and 2.1 steals per game.
For the Wizards to win this game they need to play good defense. They can score points with the best of them, so the defensive side of the ball is what’s going to be important.
