Zion is going to have an absolute field day with all his drives to the rim.

Wasn’t it Ingram that usually tears us up?

It’s hard to get a gauge in the pels through the game recaps. All they do is show Zion highlights (even lay ups) regardless of the score line.

They're a tough team that can beat anyone if the shots are falling like pretty much anyone else. SVG has them playing well quicker than I thought he would.

Their biggest problem is depth. Reddick is the only guy I trust off the bench. I guess Hart is usually pretty reliable, but he rarely changes a game.

Any chance that saric and smith are back for us?

Zion crashing the boards will be a problem. Think we need to do a good job at the point of attack. If Ayton has to come over and help on drives by Bled/Ingram, that’ll leave Adams and Zion to get every miss.

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

Our best hope is for Bridges/Camx2 to get hot and force the Pels to react to us. Make Williamson and Adams defend the perimeter and move on defense.

This is the night for Crowder to start earning his contract. Can he get under Zion's skin?

Will CP3 build on his improvement from last game?

I'm much more confident in Bridges slowing Ingram than I am in any of our bigs slowing Zion crashing to the rim.

I forgot to mention that the Suns and Pelicans are at the top of the Western Conference standings!

Along with six other teams.

We really are. But it's really not that interesting at this point in the season. Better than the alternative though.

Was already assuming Ayton foul trouble for tonight but now I fully expect Mikal and Jae foul trouble as well.
