Willie Green is sticking with the same New Orleans Pelicans starting lineup.
#Pelicans Starters:— Daniel Sallerson (@dsallerson) February 15, 2022
Devonte’ Graham, CJ McCollum, Brandon Ingram, Herb Jones and Jonas Valanciunas, who have amassed a -30.0 net rating (110.0 ORTG, 140.0 DRTG) through two games, will attempt to show better cohesion against the Toronto Raptors.
The offense showed massive improvement from McCollum’s debut in the last game versus the Spurs; however, the defense was really poor, allowing San Antonio to post a 61.2 TS%.
The Raptors, who are the second-best offensive rebounding team and average 16.1 second chance points, also like to get out and run (15.4 fast break points).
The Pelicans defense will need to battle significantly harder if they hope to even find themselves in position to snare a victory tonight.
For more on this matchup, please give our preview a read where I postulate a change to the starting lineup may be in order.
