New Orleans Pelicans Team News 

The Pelicans are the team that changed the least this season. However, the biggest boost for Willie Green’s team will be the return of Zion Williamson, who missed last season due to injuries and extra kilos he had. And immediately in the first two matches, he showed what a beast he is in both directions.

The team from New Orleans already showed in Brooklyn that they are no joke. They beat the Nets by 22 points. And then Pelicans also beat the Hornets away from home. In both matches, they showed all their attacking potential. Four players in the team each scored 20 or more points.

The Pelicans have a great center line, in addition to Jonas Valanciunas, who scored 30 points for the Horents, there are also Eurobasket MVP Willy Hernangomez and “high flyer” Jaxon Hayes.

New Orleans is a serious team, besides Williamson, the main links of this team are certainly C.J. McCollum and Brandon Ingram, who are able to score over 30 points for each team. C.J. played great with Lillard in Portland, now it’s up to Green to match him and find a role for him, with Ingram and Zion, because both Ingram and C.J. most often they prescribe from a racket and from half distance.

They are favorites against the Jazz, but they need to prove it on the floor. But these Pelicans have promise, especially if Ziona gets healthy.

Utah Jazz Team News 

One thing is for sure, Danny Ainge knows what he’s doing. After doing a great job with the Celtics as GM, it’s time for him to take the Jazz to the next level. This summer, he gave up two key players in Gobert and Mitchell. And when everyone expected the Jazz to start a rebuild, they beat the Nuggets and the Wolves.

The team’s new coach is Will Hardy, a former Celtics assistant. In the trades for Mitchell and Gobert, he got young players that he will try to fit into the system, namely Lauri Markkannen and Colin Sexton. These two proved to be the right choice and, together with Jordan Clarkson, cause big problems for all opposing teams.

This season, Utah decided on an attacking style of play and a lot of points. In their composition, they have all the players who can score from a distance. Therefore, it is not surprising that Hardy brought one of the best three-point shooters from the center position, Kelly Olyinik, to his team.

Utah has shown what it can do, there will be ups and downs, but we believe that in the near future this team will be a serious contender in the West.

Even though this is a duel between two undefeated teams, we expect the Pelicans to win for sure. Both teams play offensive basketball, but we think that in this shootout, the Pelicans have more ammunition.
