Christian Wood faces a former team. Will he go off?

Rinse and repeat.

Elfrid Payton, Ian Clark, Kenrich Williams, Julius Randle and Jahlil Okafor will all remain in the starting lineup against the Charlotte Hornets tonight. Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday, E’twaun Moore, Frank Jackson and Darius Miller will sit once more.

Rinse and repeat.

Yes, it’s been a long, disappointing campaign but one week from now, the regular season will be over. That’s right, the misery is nearly over; however, don’t despair because that’s when the real fun begins — prospect analysis, NBA Combine, and of course, the NBA Draft! New Orleans is 99.9% likely going to score at least one top pick and chances are that an Anthony Davis trade should return another solid pick...maybe two!

For now, geaux Pels!
