What you need to know about the Pelicans
On Saturday, the Pelicans lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder at home by a decisive 110-96 margin. Shooting guard Josh Richardson wasn’t much of a difference maker for New Orleans. Richardson finished with only six points on 2-for-10 shooting in his 26 minutes on the court.
However, CJ McCollum did have a nice game with 26 points, eight assists and seven rebounds. The 10th-year veteran will have to continue carrying the load with Zion Williamson (hamstring) out and Brandon Ingram (ankle) listed as questionable.
What you need to know about the Trail Blazers
Meanwhile, Portland lost 120-119 to the Philadelphia 76ers this past Friday on a last-second jumper from Philadelphia’s center Joel Embiid with 0:01 left to play. Portland was up 71-56 at the end of the half but couldn’t hold on to the lead. The losing side was boosted by shooting guard Anfernee Simons, who shot 8-for-12 from downtown and finished with 34 points.
It was a strong return from Simons after he had missed seven of the previous eight games with an ankle injury. Simons should help take some of the pressure off Damian Lillard, who was averaging 24.9 shot attempts per game in his previous nine contests.
