The Pels have been fantastic at home (16-4) and fared well against sub-.500 opponents (12-5). Additionally, the Rockets have lost nine of their last 10 games, rarely beat above-.500 teams (5-20) and reportedly have experienced no growth as unit.
Eric Gordon’s message couldn’t have been any clearer on New Year’s Eve. He’s desperate to experience winning, but the Rockets have not proven capable despite relatively good health — all their typical starters have appeared in at least 31 of their 37 games.
Only Jae’Sean Tate is unavailable for Houston this evening, while New Orleans will be without Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram, Larry Nance Jr. and EJ Lidell.
For more on why the Pelicans could potentially survive going any length of time without both B.I. and Z, please give this article from earlier today a read.
