New Orleans is making lots of headlines these days and it is not about their play. They are looking kind of lame and this is the last game before the All-Star break.
The Thunder have their stars and are looking to ride them to great heights. They were quiet at the deadline but are a factor in the West.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder are hot right now, they have won four in a row and eleven of twelve. Nobody is playing better basketball.
With that the case it is no surprise that their stars, Paul George and Russell Westbrook have been brilliant. They both had triple doubles in their last game – I am not sure if that has ever happened before.
For Westbrook that makes 10 games in a row with a triple-double. Though I suppose that should not be too shocking given he is averaging one for the season.
Dennis Schroder has emerged as the third leading scorer on the team at 15ppg. He missed the last game for personal reasons but should be back for this one.
Out of nowhere Deonte Burton scored 18 in their win against Portland. A little more punch off the bench would make this group that much more dangerous.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans just lost by 30 points at home to the Orlando Magic, that is not a good look. There is still lots of talk swirling the team and none of it is going to help them win games at the moment. .
For the rest of the season the Pelicans have the service of Anthony Davis. His numbers for the season are at career norms but there is talk that they might be extra careful with him to preserve his value. For reasons unknown he was terrible in his last game. A season low three points. .
New Orleans traded Niko Mirotic but they still have two players averaging 20ppg plus Davis. Jrue Holiday and Julius Randle might not be top tier but they are effective players. Especially Randle who just might be a more efficient scorer than Davis.
