Thread: March 15th - New Orleans Pelicans VS Portland Trailblazers - 30-40

  1. #1

    Pelicans March 15th - New Orleans Pelicans VS Portland Trailblazers - 30-40

    Currently ranked 30-40, we have now lost 4 consecutive games and are 9th in the standings for the lottery. A loss tonight, combined with Washington beating Charlotte (entirely possible) will see us move into 8th again. If we had lost to Utah and Denver during that mini winstreak we had, we'd be in 8th already and looking to jump into 7th. Being in 7th has a 10% higher chance to end up top 4 than being in 9th. Now we see why every loss matters.

    Tonight we take on the 41-26 Portland Trailblazers, who are currently 4th in the West and are coming off two straight wins against Phoenix and the Clippers, which is a fairly large range in terms of quality of opponent. Phoenix suck beyond belief and the Clippers are actually pretty good most of the time.

    Portland are having a great year, with the league's 4th best offense and a top 15 defense to go with it. They're not elite as some of the other teams have been, and they're definitely not threatening a finals push or anything, but they should be more than enough to polish us off tonight. As usual right now, we are without Jrue and Moore, and AD has already been ruled out for rest: he is going to play the next game against Phoenix.

    Let's go out there, get the young guns plenty of run, and enjoy the show. #DoItBig!

    Rooting for ya Frank Diallo

    On the plus side, with no AD being played hopefully Diallo and Okafor can both get 20+ minutes.

    Plus side: Randle is gonna have like 40 tonight. He's not afraid to take 30 shots, and there's no AD tonight.

    One quarter down, Julius has 21. Always said he's an elite inside scorer.

    That said, he has 12 shots in the quarter. The rest of the team had 11. Not healthy.

    Elfrid has 6/3/8 so far. Double double at least.

    The ball movement is so amazing without AD.

    Just listened to the Pistons game for a bit. The commentator sounds like he should be presenting serials on ham radio in the 1940s.

    We truly are spoilt with Joel and David

    Frank has looked great this game. He's got 14 points on 6 of 9 shooting. He's just looked confident and assured on offense, driving well, attacking through contact, finishing, and looking brilliant. He's not made any threes but he's not taken any too, which is good. I like seeing that even though he's been shooting well recently and has a nice shot, he's not just going to settle for chucking.

    This will be a good loss. Diallo didn’t really impact the game, but saw good stuff from Payton, Randle and Frank. Frank should really work on his 3 in the summer.

    They have become a great team. Joel's comment are just priceless - lock him down for 5 more years.
    Thanks Pelicans Report - I get a laugh or three every day reading this thing. Hoping the magic returns to the SKC soon.
