Game Preview


The New Orleans Pelicans (6-7) host the Sacramento Kings (8-4) on November 20th at Smoothie King Center.


After defeating the Mavericks 129-113 on the road, the Sacramento Kings are now going for their seventh straight win. They have been playing at a high level lately. With 32 points, 13 rebounds, and 6 assists on 13 of 15 shooting, Domantas Sabonis headed the team. De’Aaron Fox followed with 30 points and 7 assists, and Keegan Murray finished with 17 points. Kevin Huerter, is listed as “questionable” for this game and due to an ankle ailment, Alex Len won’t be returning until mid-January. Domantas Sabonis is without a doubt playing like his team needs him to and for the past 3 games, he has been shooting at least 68% from the field while also recording double-doubles. This season, four more players are contributing double figures to the team’s success.



Last game around, the Pelicans fell by a mere point against the Minnesota Timberwolves despite having 6 players score ten or more points, Zion Williamson not included. Despite not playing in the back-to-back scenario, he ought to be fit to play this game. With some serious injuries increasing, such as CJ McCollum’s collapsed lung, which will prevent him from returning to the squad until next month, they most certainly need him. In the game against the Timberwolves with 30 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists, Brandon Ingram commanded the way for the squad. Jonas Valanciunas followed with 26 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 blocks, and Jordan Hawkins finished with 15 points. They started the game quickly, scoring 35 points in the 1st quarter to take a 15-point advantage into the 3rd quarter. However, all of their effort was in vain as the Timberwolves scored 36 points in the 4th quarter to take over the game in the closing minutes.
