Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! Can the New Orleans Pelicans hold the Detroit Pistons to less than 25 made three-pointers tonight? That seems to be the going rate based on the previous two games in losses to the Bulls and Mavericks.

One bit of positive news, Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Josh Hart, two of the team’s better defenders, have been deemed available, this after being listed as questionable yesterday and probable earlier today.

For more on tonight’s matchup — specifically the pressing need for the Pelicans to address the amount of three-pointers they allow, give our preview a read.

Btw, if you haven’t cast a vote yet, we’d love for your two cents on a good nickname for the playmaking Zion Williamson!
