They’ve posted six wins in their last seven matchups. An 8-1 record in the last nine matchups inside the Smoothie King Center. And there’s more favorable news which should boost New Orleans’ odds for victory.
Ja Morant, who was listed as questionable with left ankle soreness, will sit out.
The Pelicans are obviously catching a break but will they take advantage?
One interesting note from Taylor Jenkin’s pregame media session, the Memphis head coach talked about how New Orleans now has two professional scorers in Brandon Ingram and CJ McCollum.
How does Taylor Jenkins view the addition of CJ McCollum to the Pelicans? If minutes are staggered as such, it gives Willie Green the opportunity to have one “professional scorer” on the floor at all times. #HighPraise— Oleh Kosel (@OlehKosel) February 15, 2022
Don’t let the national media takes lead you astray, the Pelicans trading for CJ has vastly changed the way they’re perceived by opponents — they’re a much tougher team to face.
