One thing to look for in today’s matchup between the New Orleans Pelicans and Minnesota Timberwolves are potential changes to the rotation, especially in the fourth quarter.

“Now what we’re going to try to do is maybe revamp the fourth quarter rotations a little bit because we seem to be struggling a little bit,’ Alvin Gentry said after practice yesterday. “We’ve got to try to maybe realign what we’re doing from a rotation standpoint and maybe try to be a little more efficient as far as scoring in the 4th quarter.”

Gentry went on to allude that some changes could include having Brandon Ingram and/or Lonzo Ball on the court at the start of the fourth quarter. Against the Miami Heat, the Pelicans entered the final frame with a 15-point lead, but that was whittled down to four in the first six minutes because New Orleans’ offense produced only four meager points.
