The Spurs have won 6 in a row and they have the league’s 2nd best record and tonight in the Big Easy take on the Pelicans, who have the 2nd worst record in the league. New Orleans is really banged up and star C Anthony has missed a few games with a shoulder injury and he is questionable for tonight’s game.
Last season the Pelicans won 3 of 4 games facing the Spurs.
In their last games the Spurs beat the Denver Nuggets 109-98 and the Pelicans lost their 5th in a row with a 110-103 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
This season the Pelicans are 1-4 at home and the Spurs are 4-2 on the road..
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs are a balanced team that ranks 10th in scoring and they have the league’s best defense in terms of opponents’ points allowed.
San Antonio has 5 players averaging in double figures led by Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge has fit in well with the Spurs’ system and ranks 2nd on the team in scoring and first in rebounding. Tony Parker is the 3rd leading scorer and in the win over the Nuggets he went for 25 points.
To say the Spurs were hot in the Denver game would be an understatement, as they shot a scoring 64.9% from the field.
The defense of the Spurs was lights out in the Nuggets game holding them to 38.8% shooting from the field.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans rank 19th in the league in scoring and they rank dead last in the league on defense allowing 109.9 ppg.
The depleted Pelicans had a pretty decent game in the loss to the Thunder, as Ryan Anderson went for 30 points and Ish Smith and Eric Gordon went for 18 apiece.
The Pelicans are really hoping Davis is back for this game, as they are already without several key players. How bad has it been for New Orleans? They have played 12 games and have used 11 different starting lineups.
None of the top 4 scorers for the Pelicans are shooting over 48% from the fioor.
Davis needs to be in the lineup and the Pelicans need to improve their D for this game or they will be toast.
