Zion Williamson, who has missed the last two games for New Orleans after a nasty fall against the Jazz, is returning to the starting lineup.
Herb Jones and Brandon Ingram remain missing from the usual group, but according to BI’s Instagram account, he shouldn’t be out for much longer.
Along with Naji Marshall in for Jones, Trey Murphy will make his third consecutive start in Ingram’s stead. We know about his long-range shooting. And we’ve been wowed by the addition of a dribble-drive game to his repertoire this season. But did you know he’s also become one of the best defenders on the team?
Trey Murphy made SIX defensive switches on a single possession, guarding every single player on the floor for Phoenix AND he excelled.— Oleh Kosel (@OlehKosel) October 30, 2022
Look at the quick feet against Payne, the pressure on Booker, denial of Landale & turnover forced on Craig.
