With only four losses, the team is on an impressive five-game winning streak, which they will surely look to extend against the Pelicans. Donovan Mitchell is leading the team with a 23.2 points average. Jordan Clarkson, Mike Conley, Bojan Bogdanovic and Rudy Gobert are also scoring in double digits. On the other hand, the New Orleans Pelicans are near the bottom of the Western Conference table. While they registered a 128-123 win against the Sacramento Kings last, the team was previously on a five-game losing streak. Brandon Ingram is currently leading the team with a 23.3 point average. Zion Williamson follows, averaging 22.6 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. The team also announced that Lonzo Ball might play against the Jazz. Previously, Ball was listed as out. The Utah Jazz and New Orleans Pelicans meet on January 19, 2021. Utah is aiming for a sixth straight win. New Orleans beat the Kings on Sunday to end a five-game losing streak. This is the first matchup between the two teams this season – Utah went 3-1 in the season series last year, with the Pels’ lone win coming in an overtime thriller on the back of a 49-point performance from Brandon Ingram. New Orleans is still without Lonzo Ball for this game. Joe Ingles is sidelined for the Jazz and, at the time of writing, it’s unclear whether backup center Derrick Favors will be available – Favors is listed as probable to face his former team. Zion Williamson hasn’t been a human highlight reel quite like he was last season. The first overall pick was a viral sensation once again on Sunday as the Pels bested the Kings. Williamson scored 31 on 13-for-15 from the field. Sacramento had no answer to him. Utah is a different challenge, of course. Former Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert will meet Zion in the paint. Gobert is one of the best rim protectors in the game. What’s interesting from Williamson’s perspective, though, is how they choose to guard him. Bojan Bogdanovic is a good defender, but he’s not got the athleticism to live with Zion. Other teams have put their center on Zion, but Gobert’s attention will be taken by Steven Adams. The Jazz lead the league in rebounds per game. They might have met their match in New Orleans, however. The Pels are number one in offensive rebounding rate – earning those extra possessions is crucial for the Pelicans given their struggles in the halfcourt (24th in the NBA in points per 100 halfcourt possessions). Williamson and Adams are ferocious offensive rebounders. Both rank in the top 10 in offensive rebounding rate. Gobert is third in the league in defensive rebounding rate. The battle of the boards will go a long way to deciding this game. Utah is shooting just under 40% from three as a team. The backcourt triumvirate of Donovan Mitchell, Mike Conley and Jordan Clarkson are making over nine combined threes per game. That’s a worrying sign for the Pelicans, who are without one of their best perimeter defenders in Lonzo Ball and allow more three-point attempts than any other team in the NBA. New Orleans’ opponents take over 45% of their shots from behind the arc. Over 12% of shots are corner threes. The length of Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart and the defensive hustle of Ball and Eric Bledsoe has kept shooters to 37.8% from deep, but the Pels’ willingness to give up threes is a concern against a Jazz roster with plenty of shooting. It’s unlikely the Pelicans change their defensive scheme and run shooters off the line. Mitchell, Clarkson, Conley and others will get plenty of three-point looks. If they continue to shoot the ball as they have so far this season, it could be a difficult night for Stan Van Gundy’s team. The Pelicans’ offense looked like it would be problematic on paper. That theory has become reality. They are among the worst teams in the league in the total number of three-point attempts and three-point percentage. Williamson is unlikely to have the same success he enjoyed against the Kings, too. While they have moved away from playing Favors and Gobert together, they could run some two-big lineups to combat the brutality of Zion and Adams. New Orleans needs a cold shooting night from Utah to win this game. That’s very much possible, but recent performances suggest it’s unlikely. Even if one or two of their shooters are missing good looks, the Jazz move the ball well enough, and have enough shooters, to score freely. The New Orleans Pelicans ended their five-game losing streak by beating the Kings on Sunday, and their reward is two straight on the road against the Utah Jazz. Zion Williamson led the way for New Orleans against Sacramento with a dominant 31 points on 13 of 15 shooting. His dominant performance in the paint opened up the perimeter for New Orleans, which shot 50% from 3-point range, their best of the season. While recent weeks have not been kind to the Pelicans, the Jazz have rolled to five straight wins. The wins come behind excellent defensive play as Utah allowed a 39.8% field goal shooting over its past five games. With both teams playing at slower paces, this game leans in Utah’s favor. Let’s see if they have enough to beat the spread too. Despite winning on Sunday, the Pelicans did little to show they overcame the deficiencies that led to their losing streak. The main issue for the skid was their defense, which allowed the Kings to score 123 points on 51.6% shooting. The poor defensive play recently sent the Pelicans from fourth in Defensive Rating down to 18th entering play on Monday. Offensively, perimeter shooting is the main area of concern for the Pelicans. Shooting 33.4% from behind-the-arc, New Orleans entered Monday ranked 26th in 3-point shooting percentage. That number isn’t helped by Lonzo Ball shooting 7.2 3-pointers per game at just a 30.8% rate. Ball shooting less would help but not solve the problem on its own. J.J. Redick and Brandon Ingram, the team’s best shooters, also need to step up their game. Redick enters this game at 31.8% from behind the arc, which would be the lowest mark of his career. Ingram’s number fell off from the beginning of the season, going from 42.1% in his first six games to 29.0% in his last six.
