It’s a huge Western Conference showdown on Monday night at the Smoothie King Center. The Utah Jazz make the trip to New Orleans to take on the Pelicans.
The Jazz have won five of the last six games played between the two teams. In the last meeting though the Pelicans won 108-94.
The Utah Jazz still have a lot of work to do to make the playoffs, but they have really turned around their season the last few games.
They come into this game having won five straight games, and over the last three games the offense has really been clicking.
In the last three games they have scored 129 points twice, and 120 points once. For a Jazz team that hasn’t been known for their offense, they sure have surprised a few people the last couple of games.
In this game the offense is going to need to be good, but the defense is going to need to really step up against a good Pelicans offense.
One thing to watch in this game is the status of Donovan Mitchell. He missed the last game with an illness and he is officially questionable for this game.
If he can’t go they are going to need another big game scoring from Ricky Rubio, who really picked up his slack in the last game.
New Orleans Pelicans
On the other side of this match up is the New Orleans Pelicans who are trying to adjust to life without DeMarcus Cousins, and so far the results haven’t been great.
They have lost three of the last four games, and even though Anthony Davis has had some really good games, it hasn’t been enough.
As of late the struggles for the Pelicans have been on the defensive side of the ball. In each of the last three losses they have given up 112 points.
To win this game the defense is going to need to be better. As weird as it sounds they really don’t want to get into a shootout with the Jazz.
