Game 32: Pelicans strut into Denver, hoping to spread Christmas cheer in New Orleans with victory over Nuggets

Can Lonzo Ball show out against Jamal Murray?

With a number of family members joining the team on the special Christmas road trip, the New Orleans Pelicans hope to cap off this pleasant four-game jaunt with a third win, this time over the Denver Nuggets, the second best team according to wins and losses in the Western Conference.

Since Preston has you covered with all the details in his preview, let’s focus on more important matters — say the festive shoe wear.

Nicolo Melli was seen sporting these beauties from Adidas in shootaround this morning.

On the other hand, Derrick Favors will be paying homage to his late mother, who tragically passed away last month.

One thing I’ll be watching for is whether there will be a little extra competitiveness from Lonzo Ball and Jamal Murray when they square off against one another. Everyone remembers this, right?

And if you’re wondering about Zion Williamson, he’s still getting up those practice shots in pregame on the road trip.

...even though there was once hope that he would have returned for tonight’s contest.

Geaux Pels!
