Thread: December 7th - New Orleans Pelicans vs Detroit Pistons - 15-8

    Pelicans December 7th - New Orleans Pelicans vs Detroit Pistons - 15-8



    Fun fact: we played the Pistons last year on december 10th, almost exactly a year ago. Our record going into that game was 7-20. We wouldn't pick up 15 wins last season until January 11th, 41 games into the year.

    Today has all the stereotypical makings of a trap game: Pistons are on a b2b, we've had some time off. We're a good team, at home, they're a bad team on the road. We have more talent, they've got injuries to their young centrepieces. This is like how you would script a trap game, if you could.

    That means the Pels will need to be at their top level of focus. If we win tonight, we tie the Suns for the best record in the West - making the showdowns with them over the next week incredibly consequential: after all, they might decide a tie break.

    Focus up, and play with intent. Let's see what happens.
    Basketball.

    In there last 3 games detroit has defeated the heat and mavs..despite there record they shouldn't be taken lightly. I do feel though that this team is in a serious mindset and have a goal in mind. Beat them convincingly and avoid injuries!

    nothing much for me to say on top of this.... play the game, regardless of who you are playing, and beat the teams you are supposedly better than....

    No surprises on the injury front. BI, Herb, and Cade are all out.

    Maybe CJ just sucks now

    Am I the only one who hates CJ as the 1?

    He dribbles and does all this, and there' s nothing happening

    i also feel that he dribbles too much. I'd be ok with it if he was on the 2nd unit and didnt have a lot of other options on offense. But with the starters he needs to prioritize ball movement and spot up shooting.

    is it me or does Larry always miss a bone headed shot every single freaking game?

    This team has to be #1 in turnovers...Either that, or I am watching too much Pelicans game

    The most important ABILITY that a player must demonstrate in order to claim "Superstar Status" is AVAILABILITY!!

    Th era of Naji slander is over. With Herb and Trey out he is handling business. Toughness of an enforcer, plays defense, unselfish smart passes, and breaking down the defense off the dribble.

    good assist from CJ off the pick n roll with JV. We got 2 bigs on the floor right now JV and Nance

    CJ doing way too much. Running into teammates, walking...all in one possession...

  21. #21
    might be time for a timeout. Wide open blown coverage and then Jose with a hectic possession

  22. #22
    Willie trying so hard to make CJ fit and he just ain't it, fam

    that was weird defense from TM3. its like he tried to lure the guy by giving him an open line to the basket and then explode for a block but just clobbered him instead

  24. #24
    TM3 lost focus or something. Just came in the game and picked up 3 silly fouls in 1 minute.

    Man, i actually feel empathy for the guys who have to guard Zion. what are they supposed to do
