NOLA @ OKC

Game Time: 4:00 PM CT

Following their first victory of the 2019-2020 season, the young Pelicans will be looking to start a win streak of their own against the OKC Thunder. Given both teams now withhold a record of 1-4, they are hoping to capture their second W of the season.

Players to watch:

  • Brandon Ingram (NOLA): 26.8 PPG, 51.0 FG%, 8.2 REB
  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (OKC): 21.6 PPG, 44.3 FG%, 7.0 REB

BKN @ DET

Start Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Nets are coming off of a HUGE win against the star-studded Houston Rockets and hoping this will carry over to tonight’s matchup. This win proved that Brooklyn doesn’t need a 40-50 piece from Kyrie Irving to win games, so I’m sure they’ll look to spread the love across the board.

Both teams will be coming into a back-to-back after the Detroit Pistons took a hard 112-106 loss in Chicago last night. Andre Drummond finished with 25 points and 24 rebounds, but the outside shooting from the squad was horrendous (20%).

DEN @ ORL

Game Start: 7:00 PM EST on NBATV

Both of these squads are coming off of very disappointing losses with hopes of turning things around.

The Nuggets have now faced back-to-back losses, bringing their record to 3-2. On the bright side, Nugget fans got their first glimpse of Michael Porter Jr. They will be hoping to see more of the young talent on the floor tonight.

Matchup Predictor: DEN: 51.1% ORL: 42.9%

Players to watch:
