Projected Starters
Jrue Holiday > Kemba Walker
Eric Gordon > Gerald Henderson
Al-Farouq Aminu = Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
Anthony Davis > Josh McRoberts
Jason Smith = Bismack Biyombo
Advanced Stats (2013/14)

103.8 (15) DRtg 104.7 (18)

Here's the preview of the Pelicans-Bobcats game. It'll be interesting to see if Jason Smith can shoot from outside early. If so, he'll be able to drag Biyombo and his shot-blocking skills away from the paint, opening things up for Holiday and Gordon to penetrate down low. Watch for the offense to grind to a halt when Stiemsma enters - with Boyombo down low, the Pelicans likely won't be able to get to the basket very easliy.
