Game Preview

There’s an interconference matchup on the hardwood as the past and present of a franchise take the floor in Buzz City. The New Orleans Pelicans are on the road as they travel to face the Charlotte Hornets Friday night. New Orleans opened the season with an emphatic 130-108 drubbing of the Nets on the road as a 3.5-point underdog Wednesday night. Charlotte rolled to an easy 129-102 road win over San Antonio Wednesday night, easily covering the one-point line in the game.
New Orleans went on the road and took care of business with a commanding victory over Brooklyn on the road as they welcomed back Zion Williamson to the fold. The Pelicans look to build on that momentum as they jumped all over the Nets early on and never eased up after that. New Orleans outscored Brooklyn 40-28 in the third quarter to take a 20-point edge and didn’t look back on route to the triumph.
Charlotte went on the road to open the season and had little problem dispatching the rebuilding Spurs to get the 2022-23 season off on a positive note. The Hornets hope that they can maintain that solid play and momentum as they return home for this contest. Charlotte was without point guard LaMelo Ball, who missed the contest with a sprained ankle, but still had no problem putting away the Spurs.
Both teams come in off one-sided victories to open the season and they both were on the road. New Orleans looks like a dangerous team with the return of Williamson to pair alongside McCollum, Ingram, Valanciunas and company. Dismantling a Brooklyn team with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons on their own floor was an impressive opening salvo. Charlotte put together a solid showing against an inferior team in San Antonio but this is a stiffer challenge, even playing at home. Seeing how New Orleans looked against Brooklyn, they won’t be intimidated by the Hornets.
