New Orleans Pelicans Rumors
Kerry Eggers: Pels coach Alvin Gentry on Blazers ranking 25th in assists: “‘Part of it is Dame and CJ are capable of getting their own shot against anyone. Those two guys have done it since they walked into the league. They’ve been able to create their own shot in all kind of situations.”
Warriors. Anthony Davis. I’m throwing this out there, I’m not basing this on anything, but a sleeper team, Golden State for Anthony Davis. Chris Haynes: “That rumor’s been around for some time, and I think Tim Kawakami of the Athletic in the Bay Area started the reporting on that. And I think there was something to that. I’ll say this: I think things have changed a little bit now that Anthony Davis is repped by Rich Paul, who happens to be LeBron James’ agent. So I think [those rumors] had more juice this time last year, to go in that direction. I would be surprised if Golden State would be able to enter the field… to picking up AD. I think the Lakers have a legitimate shot. I think Boston is definitely gonna be in there. I can’t see Golden State picking that up. It would be mighty difficult – it’s just a lot of things have changed since then.”
Just below the top slot was another NBA game, which saw the New Orleans Pelicans facing down the Golden State Warriors for another 0.7 rating. Finally, rounding out the top 3 was “NBA After the Buzzer,” which managed to nab a 0.6 despite not airing until 1:11 a.m.
Jim Eichenhofer: Nikola Mirotic on keys for #Pelicans: “At the start of games, we need to have more energy, more urgency, more effort. And closing better. That’s one issue we’ve had this year, and we’re trying to fix that. When we play defensively with energy, our offense is also better.”
