You need let me know you in here if you could hear me.
Oh, um, clearly you can hear me, Claire.
Would that be fine? I'm glad if you hear me.
So So being here.
Just let me know if you hear me clearly because I'm once again.
We don't have headphones, headphones or malfunctions.
So let's go ahead and begin.
I want our preview today.
You always pelicans would check on, um, the Portland Trail Blazers.
Uh, that will be tonight.
Sorry. Siri's the season.
It has a 30 advantage over the Paul and Trail Blaze is just the second half.
So we want to see what the second half is gonna bring this Wallace Falcons a basketball team.
So if you're in here, just get in here.
We only have five people, so Hey, we'll go ahead and start doing a preview, OK? I three several with the season.
Siri's the last gained pelicans did Wendy Long last game that was on the bell in 19 1 15 1 before we went out.
Um, Portland and also won that game 102 94 and also opt everywhere alone before the All Star break.
11 38 1 17 1 17 So that is OK, clip time.
Thanks for joining us here.
I appreciate you. Come again.
And now preview with, um, preview pelicans basketball.
Let's go ahead and do that.
We're gonna go over point production beginning with New Orleans pelicans.
Dueling averages 117 points a game.
The Portland Trail Blazers averages 113 a game that's 113.
4 pelicans are hunted US, uh, 115 point, um eight.
So that's a different song.
That's, um, two and 1/2 point difference right there.
Now both DeFrancis some The pelicans on point production give up 117.
Again, that's the wallets I have 117 3 on the warrants are pelicans.
Portland, Um, gives up, Let's see 115 points a game.
So that's a difference right there.
That's not a two point difference.
So let's go ahead and go over the biggest.
Some stack it, go up there.
If that's, um, that's gonna be field goals.
I'm gonna pull this up.
Okay? Field goes on me tryto pull us up so you could see it.
Okay, he'll go shooting Pelicans averages 46 point Cyril from the field.
Portland averages 45.
6, so it's, uh, one point difference there.
So, Portland, uh, both teams steaks on 91 shots in our game.
So that's one thing that pelicans are gonna continue to do.
Take significant mama shots in games toe just, he'll get there.
The difference right there.
So I look at it this way tonight.
We can sweep this service tonight if we can go over there and I'll do some odd damage now, the three point shooting would give it a three point shooting.
Our percentages, uh, pelicans are, um, let's see.
3 and the Portland Trail Blazers are at 37.
50 So it's a three point difference right there with Mom.
Uh, three point shooting.
But the pills, um, hit 14 out of 38 shots.
Portland hits 12 out of 34 shots and games.
Now they give up the defense pills.
Defense gives up 35.7.
The ah Portland defense on three point shots give up 37.
So I say this Look, I I would say the edge.
Go sit in the Wallace pelicans in this game.
Uh, if you look at it now for throw shooting, let's go ahead and give you the free throw percentages.
Portland's at 80%.
They get on the line 21 times a game and convert 17 shots while the pelicans um um get on the line 23 times and get Burton 16 shots there at 73%.
So that's a 70 That, um but a closer nine and 1/2 point difficulties that nine, maybe 10 point difference for that situation.
So I look at it this way.
The biggest thing we cannot do is let Portland get on the line tonight.
We can't let him get on the line because that's that could be a biggest detrimental, um, mistake that the pelicans will make if they dio.
So I say free throws way.
Eliminate their, um uh I'm getting on the free throw line and kind of this play defense at that at the latest.
Now the turnovers.
This is what we'll talk about.
Some, um, average of 16 turnovers on offense.
The public is defense key, um causes 14 turnovers on defense.
So that's a significant change right there.
Now, um, this is from, uh, really GM.
You go to Rio GM anytime.
Portland averages 12.
8 points a game, while the defense gives up 12.
5 points a game.
Now the rebounds.
Let's go to the rebounding aspects of this game.
Poland averages 45.8.
The pellets average 46.
6 now on both sides of the defense's.
Portland gets up 48.
1 on defense and Bells give up 45.3.
Now the offensive rebounds.
This is the main concern right here.
We have to get more rebounds.
Pell's average 11.
1 rebounds on offense.
Uh, the defense gives up on 10.
1 on offense now Portland, Just 10.
2 office rebounds on the floor.
And also, um, let's see, they give up 12.0.
So that's the high number right there.
But pulling, pulling Trailblazers.
Um, so I'll be honest with you, the pills right now I'd give up less, um, Office of rebounds in the game.
They contribute mawr on the offense.
Then I'm giving up on G p.
That's so that's the biggest concern way.
Look at every time when we do these type of bomb breakdowns here.
So next some I think I'm gonna go over Is the defense of rebound defense Rebounds? Um uh, Pelicans averaging 35.
5 rebounds on defense.
The opponent inside.
It's the same thing. 35.3.
So now Portland, um averages 35.
6 on defense rebounds while giving up 36 rebounds on, um, on the defense aside.
Now, the assists a game.
This is Ah, set.
Pelicans are at 26.
3 a Portland that, say 20 0.0.
That's a six point difference right there.
Now, when the defense aside, pelicans give up 24 assists a game and the same thing for the Trail Blazers.
So that's the young stats we look at right there between both Scots teams.
Uh, this is what we look at right here.
Um, thes 32 wins in New Orleans pelicans.
This is from 1946 in 1947.
But tell us, haven't been around that long.
They've been around since 2002.
Um, but Portland gets 33 wins now.
The e feel go shooting in games.
Um, the pelicans are averaging 53.7%.
The Portland Trail Blazers the averaging 52.5.
That's what e feel go shooting in games.
Now on offensive rebounding percentages, the pelicans are averaging 23.
9 in the Portland Trail Blazers, 22.
1 Now on the, um, free throw.
Um um Pelicans averaging 18.
4 to Portland Trail Blazers are at a 19.
1 turnover percentage.
Pelicans are at 13.
Trail Blazers are definitely at 11.3.
So that's the higher percentage right there for the young New Orleans Pelicans.
So that's the biggest concern, right? There is turnovers.
We got to stop giving those turnovers to those onto the team, because I'll be honest with you.
If you don't stop giving turnovers, that's what we lose these games in and that in.
And that's the biggest.
Some meth we cannot afford to, um, render in games is turnovers.
We have to be more sound without, um, because sometimes we see when I see those games.
I do these games here on SportsCastr.
I've been doing this game, Uh, what? Um, frequently.
And I've been seeing turnovers at the turnovers, bad passes and stuff like that, something we cannot afford to do.
It's not give up bad passes.
We got to continue to hold onto that basketball.
Don't wallet out of bounds because that's gonna, um, um single that it's gonna go back to Port.
Portland's gonna cash in one of those.
Sorry about, um, turnovers.
With points off turnovers.
That's the biggest I'm concerned.
Like that is the points off turnovers.
Because when you have, um, more points off turnovers, the other team, you're not there.
He's not gonna win 99% of the time.
It's just gonna be, uh, just a blatant mess right there.
So I'll be honest with your, um, points off turnovers.
Pelicans have to be Maur sound and get points off turnovers off a Portland's turnovers.
Okay, let's go ahead and, um, scrolled us down.
Get this down, Thio.
Okay, this is the last time the pelicans, uh, this is sense on this is some, uh, that the series is 30 So I look at it this way.
Pelicans have the opportunity to win this game.
They won the last three.
Siri's against the Portland Trail places.
I'm pretty sure that could sweep the series tonight if they go up there and don't screw up and stuff like that.
So this has been a sense.
Let's say this has been sent some 2000 and choose when the pelicans played when they started when it was inception, so that this is a very long time.
This is about 17 years.
Ah, Bomb aboutthe Siri's with, um, the trail blazes, but, um but but but the pelicans have been winning some games with them, but I'm looking to see what's gonna happen tonight with Zion Williamson.
And hopefully, Brandon Ingram does play tonight because the thing is, look, he's been missing sometimes.
So we hope we are.
He is going to be in the rotation tonight.
Uh, this is the depth chart.
Um, your starters or, um Alonso Ball Red****.
Um, how today, Um, Ingram and favors.
Now, your rotation would be, um you kill Alexander Walker.
Josh thought Zion, Williamson and Jackson.
He's, uh, then, um, And then it goes down to Gray.
And I'm Frank Jackson and Kendrick Williams.
And also a macro war.
So that's that's your arm? Yeah.
Um, your pelicans depth chart right there for just this time around.
Now, um, for Portland, this is another, um, situation.
No, don't put little it in their love.
It's gonna play.
Definitely gonna play.
My Carly's gonna play already riding Hood.
I don't know if he's gonna play, it's gonna be Carmelo Anthony.
Ah Whiteside Sevens.
I tracked and swam it in.
It's gonna be in a those rotations for those pelicans and the traveling.
Excuse me, The Portland Trail Blazers.
So I look at it this way.
Look, they put in those guys that's going to be on some matchup problems right there.
That's going to be match up problems in games.
So I look at it this way.
What? We put our best out there.
They're gonna put their best out there.
So that's the young.
That's how I was gonna go.
Okay, let's go ahead and give you the young Portland Trail Blazers players.
Okay? Portland Trump places players.
OK, Carmelo Anthony leads without 15 points a game.
He's also a CIA say, 41% shooter, and he's also a 35% three point shooters you most like.
We will see some action from him if he does try to tempt the three.
Also, you have trouble.
Reason. He has 10 points a game.
The averages I'm shoots about 50% clip.
He also shoots 39 a half three point shots.
He also gets to the line as well, so he's gonna get to the line.
He's gonna try to get to the line now.
Ah, let's say Zach Collins at Collins as nine points a game.
He's out boozing, 47% from the young, say, UM, 47% from the arm feel and also 42% on three point shot.
So he's a pretty good three point shooter as well.
That's a Damian Lillard.
It's another guy, but he Damian Lola is a 40 6% shooting.
He's also a 39% 3 point shooter.
He's averaging 29 points a game.
So you're gonna see Damian Lillard in this game tonight? Hopefully, we can contain him.
Um, NASA little.
He's averaging three points, but he's kind of not much of a three point shooter.
UH, also C J. McLovin.
McClellan averages 21 points, but he's also a 44% shooter.
He's also gets to the line.
He's a 75% shooter, so if you get that guy on that, that's gonna probably be the Anthony Simon.
This is not a guy that they picked up.
He's a 41% shoot.
He's also a 34% 3 point shooter as well, now swanning.
And this young man, he's a 50% um feel go shoot.
But he's not a three point threat.
He's not, Uh uh, But he's also a 37% 3 point free throw shooting.
So I look at it this way.
It's gonna come down to my Carlin or, um uh, Damian Lillard That that we gotta contain now, Trent Threat.
Um, I'm left in yet.
He put up some points as well, but you have a jump 42%.
So it was a 42% shooting and also a 40% great point shooter in games.
Now what? Um Hassan Whiteside.
He He's averaging 15 points a game, but he's a 61% shooter.
That's not a guy that's very good for this Portland Trailblazers steam.
He's also a 50% 3 point shooters.
So you're gonna have you have problems with him as well.
If he comes out, start shooting the ball from three point range, so he's going to try to knock down the streets.
That's one thing he's gonna do and games.
So that's my breakdown.
Like their bomb, Portland.
Now that you always pelicans, you most likely will see a say Okay, you're gonna see a lot of ball tonight.
He won't be in the lineup, you will see Josh Shaw.
He will most likely get into the lineup as well.
Also drew Holiday.
Hopefully, Brandon, England does play.
I'm pretty sure if the injury probably is healed up.
Some I don't know.
We don't We don't have updates on it, but well, we'll keep you informed.
Okay, Frank Jax is not a guy.
We and I also I'm going to see what, Nico knowing something unique.
Oh, Nelly, look this young when this guy is absolutely, uh, he hits threes and stuff like that, but he won't get into the lane and knock down some shots.
That's one thing he will do.
But for the pelicans also e crime or it's a not a not a guy.
He's a not a benefactor.
I mean, sure, a lot of people might say, Well, we need to get ready.
He's got this guy just a guy that's got no, I don't want to get rid of any of these guys.
I wanna keep this guy this group together because these guys will be a damaging force.
Um, in games, Um, just like Jackson.
He's just like Jackson.
He's He's another one.
It's another one that comes in, Um, when you give him the ball, that ball is going to the basket.
No, no matter what.
So that's my own take on them on this on this pelican's team now J. J. Red****.
He's He's, um um, he's a three point shooter right here.
He's also taken on hit but nineties, either 90% free throw shooter as well.
So I look at it this way.
It's gonna be some problems matchup wise, but it's Santi Okay for the New Orleans publicans.
Last 10 games to see this was the This was up everywhere.
This was back and, um, back a couple weeks ago.
They get on their feet.
Um, Portland, 1 38 1 17 The offense about rating with one 33 to 1 20 Tow 1 12 1 33 2112 They had both teams had 104 possessions in that in that game, Um, either scoring by quarters.
The Portland Trail Blazers outscored him in the first, but the Pelicans outscored Portland in the second in the third and also in the fourth quarter.
Now, the defense rating on the Pels was that 1 12 Portland with that 1 33 on the defense of ratings.
So the officer ratings for the pills and the game was, um, like I said was Excellent.
Now the four factors shooting in the game, Portland shot 51%.
The pellet shot 60 0.
9% from the field goal shooting.
Also, the turnover percentage was that both teams was in this high numbers right there.
Last time we played him, they shot 47%.
We held him to just 24% from three point range.
So that's the biggest I ke like.
They're holding them, um, minimal numbers.
When you when you look at Oldham to minimal shooting on on three point shots, same thing would feel go shooting.
That's That's the biggest concern way have now the Pelicans in the last game against some Trail Blazers with hitting 53% of their shots, and that was some 49 of 19 to the Pelican ****.
14 34 of their shots on three point um, and pelicans got to the line 32 times the last time they played.
A fella's got to the line 32 times and get Berta 26 shots in games.
Left something the last time they played.
So I look at it this way.
This is gonna be a different situation.
Um, last time I live well, it had 29.
He had 4.3 rebounds.
That was against the pelicans.
Carmelo Anthony had 15.3.
That some we look at right there now the young the leaders in that game was C.
The shooting leader is Hassan with 61%.
Um, he's also, um, he's also a leader in three point shooting. So that's Hasaan.
Also the leader and feel Go shooting.
It's on Jackson, ese.
And, um, a macro old reports the leader and not break point shooting.
And they're not Radic.
It's the yacht leader.
And, um say, um, free throw shooting.
So that's the biggest things we look at in these on basketball games.
So, um, let's go ahead and give you the young trade to this game.
I'm not going to give you the trends, Okay? Trends.
We have him right on the screen.
Pelicans right now and on the Friday night Games are for and 17 in the last two seasons.
That's, um, not good right there.
But also the Pelicans of 27 to 14 against the spread in at last, um, after three consecutive overs and the last three seasons.
Also the pels of 22 10 in road games, 20 to attend, versus four defensive teams, allowing 106 points a greater and second half of the season over the last years.
Portland a 17 to 26 versus four defensive teams, allowing UM, 106 plus points games this season.
Also, the Trail Blazers are 14 to 24 versus good defensive teams when schooling.
Ah, 106 points, Uh, this season.
So that's a difference right there.
When the pelicans are, um um, that 22 10 the Portland Trailblazers.
I'm gonna tell you there 17 26 and then also there 14 24.
That's so that's their records right there.
That rockets hasn't been a zoo good as advertised for their own teams.
Now this is the head.
They had the history right here.
Pelicans are nine and five against the spread versus Portland over the last three seasons.
Also, the pelicans are nine and five, uh, straight up against Portland.
Over the last three seasons, seven out of 14 games in necessaries went over the total, so they're most likely will go over the total.
Pelicans are not like I said.
They're not a very good Um, When when it comes to um, let's see on Friday night, they're not that good at Born 17 said I built their very sloppy when it comes to the last, um, Friday night games.
So that's your trends right there.
I will use these all the time to give you a sense of what? What the But these teams absolutely.
Look, I went out when they play on on the court and stuff like that.
I mean, that's the stats would give you.
So let's go ahead and give you the young point spreads of this game.
I'm gonna go ahead and give you today's points.
Bride and mom go ahead and give you that spread in just a second.
Let me pull this up on.
I'll give you the spread when the pelicans, um, Portland Trail Blazers.
Pelicans are sane Okay, Uh, pelicans are our five point favorites going into this game against Portland.
So it's five and 1/2 but, um, from west Gate, um, five from Maraj five stations, Casino.
Also, Pinnacle has a five.
Also f i A, uh hey.
Has it at five and 1/2 in game.
So that's the, um, pelicans point Spread the the over a suit 39.
Um, arrives to 38 at home.
Yeah, West Gate, the 2 39 West Gate.
Murat's to 38 to 38 s stations, also to 38 at Pinnacle and 2 39 So both from West Gate and s I a has it at 2 39 a half.
So that's over on the point spread right there.
So I think this game most likely will be, um I probably think it's gonna be over the spreader.
Let's give you the money line on these games.
Let's give you the money line.
Go ahead and put like, money line up for you.
So let me get that.
The money line in this game right now, but in the walls, publicans and arm, and Portland Trail Blazers.
Right now it's what gate has it at 2 30 Maraj.
Is that 1 80? Station has that to 10.
Um, also pentacle heads That too old too.
And I'm say, that's, um S l a.
That's s o a casino.
I think it's one of the casinos in Las Vegas.
Has that, um, to 13 foot in the Wallace pelicans.
But 1 85 1 85 for Portland.
So but the height, the lowest one from, um, Portland would be 1 75 So on the money line, so it will be 1 75 and 1/2.
So okay, the totals.
I must give you those totals.
Okay, The totals in this game.
So Total was going to be pals versus some.
It's like I said 2 38 to 39.
So that's your total's right there.
So I say this if the pills come out and win this game conventionally, I think they'll cover the spread.
I say it's gonna probably be at the first after a probably A, um maybe a four point lead toe, a five point lead.
I say four point leads off five point lead at the half and then second half, it'll probably go.
Go even higher in the second half for the young.
Pull the Trail Blazers in the Wallace Pelicans.
So, uh, that's my take on that situation.
So let me go ahead and switch this over.
We'll go ahead and, um, do that.
Okay. Once again.
Thanks for joining us here.
