Value The Three


On opening night the Pelicans gave us a little surprise, jimmer fredette and Austin rivers played together, they actually played together for a while. Though they did not shoot the ball all that well, it was still nice to see that Monty is not shying away from this tandem that played so well in the preseason when they were on the floor at the same time. Jimmer's shot was not falling on opening night but the spacing he and Ryan Anderson can create on the floor with rivers driving and dishing, is really something I look forward to seeing more of. It took Anderson a while to get going from behind the arc but when he did he caught fire and had the smoothie king center rocking. Not if but when the time comes that jimmer and ryno's shot are both falling it is going to be something magical, with rivers and tyreke driving and kicking, this second unit could really extend some leads. Hopefully this unit can grow together and keep letting the three ball fly, they have guys that can really benefit from that floor spacing.
