Jrue Holiday will return to the starting lineup, moving Eric Gordon to the bench. In his last game as a reserve against the Grizzlies, Gordon played only 20 minutes, scored just 8 points and snapped his 31-game streak with at least one made three-pointer.
Based on previous results, Ryan Anderson loves seeing the Cleveland Cavaliers. In the 2 games these two teams met last season, the Flamethrower averaged 31 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1 steal and an astounding 8 three-pointers.
Kyrie Irving is nearing a return, having participated in full contact, 5-on-5 basketball in practice yesterday, but he remains without a timetable. No, even some voodoo magic will not change this status as he is staying behind in Cleveland while the Cavaliers are out on their current road trip.
Looking for some good karma? The Pelicans have a 1-1 record when they've appeared on ESPN during the current 2015-16 season.
