Through a fun story, Willie Green told media that they want Jonas Valanciunas to shoot more 3-pointers.
Here’s an interesting factoid: When JV shoots at least one 3-pointer in a game, the Pelicans are 13-4. When he fails to hoist up a single attempt from deep, the team is 1-4. – 1:57 AM

The Spurs have lost 10 in a row, tying the 1986-87 squad for the second-longest skid in franchise history, and are 1-15 in their last 16 games. If the Spurs (6-17) lose their next three, they will match the 1988-89 squad for the longest losing streak in club history. – 11:53 PM

To add to @JoelMeyersNBA point about how much success Jonas Valanciunas has had in his career vs. San Antonio, he also authored a 23-point, 23-rebound night in the 2021 play-in tournament against Spurs, which doesn’t count in official career stats – 8:39 PM

Dyson Daniels had a coming out party of sorts against the Raptors, posting a near triple-double in 31 minutes.
He’s quickly proven to be a great defender, but his passing, rebounding and ability to push the pace should also make him a rotation mainstay. https://t.co/a1CCnw7dVZ pic.twitter.com/VrlSOqEHai8:04 AM
