Thread: January 13th - New Orleans Pelicans @ LA Clippers - 4-5

    Pelicans January 13th - New Orleans Pelicans @ LA Clippers - 4-5



    So, we skipped a game for COVID reasons. Hey, might end up skipping this game too, who knows? But for now it's a thing so I'm making the thread, even if it's super early.

    I made it super early because I saw this PR update for the injury report. Some footage was released earlier today with Kira playing with the starters which prompted conversation about his opportunities, and then later that day it turns out Lonzo is out and Bledsoe is questionable for next game. Now, this may be simply wishful thinking here, but hopefully that means Kira gets 20 minutes and plays some with the starters and we can see how things go. If not, it's not the end of the world, but it's at least something to consider.

    Of course, this means that the odds of us actually winning this game are fairly minuscule, but they were fairly long odds anyway so none of us should be too concerned. The Clippers have had some struggles early, but with Kawhi appearing to be on the rebound from a rough start and Paul George starting off the season strong, we were always in for something of a fight. Ironically enough, given their roster, the defense has been the largest issue for the Clippers so far and sadly our offense has simply not been consistent enough for me to believe we're guaranteed to take advantage of that.

    Still, let's just hope the game goes well, we see some Kira, and he does some cool fast person stuff.
    Cade Cunningham/Usman Garuba/Scottie Barnes/Moses Moody/Brandon Boston Jr endorser.

    I also saw that Steven Adams has been suffering from Migraine Headaches.

    If this is how we get a lot more NAW and any Kira at all, so be it.

    Edit: also...what footage?

    Would be nice. Watching Halliburton has been frustrating thinking about losing the coin flip.

    I'm actually really glad Haliburton ended up somewhere like he did, for his sake. I said prior to the draft that he absolutely wasn't an NBA primary, and that if he wanted to be maximised he needed to go somewhere that was able to let him play a linking role, and do secondary playmaking. That's where he went, and the result has been that all of his best skills have shown up a ton. Great fit for him, very happy for him.

    NAW should have the green light tonight and shoot 15-20 shots lol...

    now if zion is out for covid then we should have a postponement because zion was at practice with the team.....

    Nah, use it like a preseason game and give some bench players some experience.

    Kira should have been playing the entire time. The Pels act like they have good guards in front of him or something. No reason to complain about playmaking and then not play a playmaker.

    Yeah Kira should just get 35 minutes tonight honestly. See what he can do. If he goes 5/21 from the floor who cares, it's not like sitting him for Sindarius Thornwell was going to win us the game anyway.

    Think of it how Tyrese Maxey got tons of play for the Sixers the other day and just went out and dropped 39 points because he was basically their only ball handler and he got to put everything on display. Do that.

    Can we not let him be a Frank Jackson 2.0, lol? Making shots is great and everything, but he needs to provide more than just scoring.

    NAW has already shown some potential as a defender I feel. We just need him to get more reps in.

    I agree. He plays aggressive for every minute he’s on the court. That’s what Pels need.

    Bledsoe officially out.

    30 minutes of Kira pls.

    Stan will probably play Willie at PG instead of running Kira

    Ready some Big Willie tonight....



    Wait... WHat...

    Confirmed that Kira will get minutes at PG tonight.

    I feel like one of two things will happen.

    He'll either be brilliant, or absolutely awful. For some reason I just don't feel there's much chance of him being ''alright''
