Welcome to the Game Thread. Veterans of the Game Thread know how we do things around here, but for all you newbies we have a few rules. Our community guidelines apply and basically say be cool, NBA Pajamas no personal attacks, don’t troll and don’t swear too much.
The play-in is postseason, but it’s not the playoffs. It’s kind of a postseason purgatory, where you can only get into the good place (playoffs) by winning one or two games, depending on your ranking. If the Spurs can beat the Pelicans tonight, they would be halfway there (on a wing and a prayer) to the play-in finale, with a 9:00 PM Friday matchup against the Clippers in Los Angeles, televised on TNT.
The Spurs have had pretty good success this season against the Pelicans, winning 3 out of the 4 matchups, including both games in New luka dončić jersey Orleans. But Smoothie King Center will be rocking tonight with a playoff-like atmosphere, and the Pelicans are counting on the home crows to propel them to a win tonight. The key matchup tonight might be Jonas Valančiūnas vs. Jakob Poeltl, because the big Austrian will need to stretch his defense to contain the Lithuanian’s range. Jaxson Hayes gives the Pelicans a lot of size in luka doncic slovenia jersey their frontcourt, so Pop might counter with Jock Landale as necessary. Dejounte Murray will have to contain Jose Alvarado who used his size against Tre Jones in the last game to good effect. I have to say that I have a good feeling about tonight, but the Spurs will need to get away from the slow starts they’ve been having recently to keep the crowd out of the game. Let’s all watch the Silver and Black work on becoming the first play-in team to contend for a championship.
