Interesting to see how Santi does defending Zion.  Also why the heck are the Pelicans starting people out of position instead of just starting Graham or Alvarado?

I'm sure they are just wanting to start their best 5.  CJ is listed as a PG or SG.  Both Ingram and Herb are SF/Wings so I don't know if they are necessarily playing people out of position.  Just playing big ball.

New Orleans: Zion Williamson (right ankle/foot sprain) has been downgraded to questionable for Tuesday’s game against Memphis.

CJ can play PG but his natural position is SG.  Ingram can play SG but his natural position is SF.  Herb can play SF but his natural position is PF.  They are all playing slightly out of position.

True.  Zion can play PF but his natural position is offensive lineman.

Agree and disagree. CJ has always played some PG, when Dame sat, CJ would often play PG.Ingram is a SF, and is having to guard smaller guys this year, so agree with you there. Disagree on Herb Jones, he's a natural SF, not a PF. He guarded up some with Zion out last year, but his value is guarding wings.

DB/Laravia

So Bane is probably out ??

Dang have we played Pels at full strength at any time in the Ja era??  Seems like we are always down a main guy when we face them.

Pels are 30th, last, in the league in 3 point shots attempted pg. https://www.teamrankings.com/nba/stat/three-pointers-attempted-per-game

And 28th in 3 pointers made pg. https://www.teamrankings.com/nba/stat/three-pointers-made-per-game

Herb Jones shooting 11% from 3. Zion has made three 3-pointers all season. 

We led the league in blocks and steals last season, right? It's kind of wild seeing how low we rank in both those categories this season.

They shifted to focusing on improving shooting and halfcourt offense moreso than banking on steals and fastbreaks to win games.   Steals/Blocks may win alot of regular season games but in the playoffs having a competent halfcourt offense is what wins series.

Need good-Dillon tonight and we need Konchar or Laravia to be a factor offensively from deep.

LaRavia should be biggest benefactor with Dez being out and Jaren back.   

Ja+Jitty+DB+Jaren+Adams

Tyus+Jake+Santi+BC

I say go 9 man rotation and roll with Jake over Roddy.

Increase Jitty and Jake minutes to offset loss of Bane's shooting.   I left off Roddy because we cannot afford to have Roddy+Jake mins together without cratering production of 2nd unit.
