Regular Season Record-

New Orleans Pelicans: W-34, L-26
Players to watch out for:
Nikola Jokic – Outshone both Paul George and Russell Westbrook in the last match after scoring a match-high 36 points against Oklahoma City Thunder. An all-rounder on the Basketball court, the 24-year-old is averaging a team-high 20.7 points per game and 12.7 rebounds per game.
Jamal Murray – Another young prodigy on Nuggets’ impressive roster is Jamal Murry who is primed to become a true superstar if he remains injury-free and motivated. The 22-year-old is averaging 18.1 points per game for Nuggets this season.
Donovan Mitchell – Scored 32 points in the winning cause last time around. Ever since he was drafted in 2017, the 22-year-old has been a revelation of sorts. The shooting guard is Jazz’s best player this season, and the only player to average in the 20s for Utah. He is averaging 22.8 points per game.
Rudy Gobert – The 2nd on the list is Rudy Gobert. His numbers could be misleading though. His season averages maybe 15.4 points per game but he is an indispensable part of the team. The 26-year-old is racking up a team-high 12.9 rebounds per game.
