THE STORY: Game Preview.
The Pelicans are not going to be a pushover like that Cavs team was. Not one bit. This team might be a lot better than people realized going into the season, and they could end up a top four seed in the West if all goes well. They also have players that specifically will be trouble for the Nets in a couple of their weak spots. A big-man rotation of Anthony Davis, Nikola Mirotic, and Julius Randle is a nightmare for most teams, and the Nets are really going to have their hands full dealing with this three-headed monster. They’re the team’s three leading scorers and rebounders. Here’s the kicker though: They can all shoot. The Nets did a nice job containing the Cavs’ big men offensively, but the Pelicans are multiple levels ahead of them. The Cavs are like one of those kids you battle on the side of the road in Pokemon and the Pelicans are a Gym Leader.
