New Orleans Pelicans                                             

The New Orleans Pelicans will welcome the Charlotte Hornets to Smoothie King Center for an NBA game on Thursday. The New Orleans Pelicans won 119-84 in their last game over the Spurs. Brandon Ingram scored 32 points, and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the San Antonio Spurs 119-84 on Tuesday night. “I just continued to attack,” said Ingram, who made all 10 of his free throws. “I was good at the free-throw line today and just concentrating on my shot and trying to knock them down. Thank you to the referees.”

Jonas Valanciunas had 19 points and 15 rebounds for the Pelicans, who led by as many as 36 points before closing out their second straight victory. “JV, whether he scores of not, when he touches the ball in the post, he creates offense for us,” Pelicans coach Willie Green said. “So there’s times when we’ve just got to throw it down to him and allow him to operate.”

Trey Murphy III scored 17, and CJ McCollum added 15 points. Ingram scored 16 in the third quarter, when New Orleans widened a 25-point halftime lead to 31. “BI had it going right away. I thought getting to the free-throw line helped him develop more of a rhythm and he was big time for us,” Green said. “Just reading the game, reading what the defense is giving you — he’s exploiting it.”

Charlotte Hornets

The Charlotte Hornets on the other hand won 115-109 against the Pacers in their last game. Kelly Oubre Jr. scored 28 points, and the Charlotte Hornets erased a 21-point first-half deficit to beat the Indiana Pacers 115-109 on Monday night behind a strong finish to snap a six-game home losing streak. Terry Rozier added 23 points and Gordon Hayward had 22 for the Hornets, who outscored the Pacers 19-4 over the final six minutes to deal the Pacers’ postseason hopes a big blow.

“Believe me, an opportunity lost for sure,” Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. Oubre said he and his Charlotte teammates are well aware that some Hornets fans don’t want them to win at all at this point in the season with the team eliminated from playoff contention, hoping to have a better shot at the upcoming NBA draft’s two prize prospects Victor Wembanyama and Scoot Henderson.

But Oubre said the Hornets aren’t bout to stop competing. “It’s kind of backward when we people are commenting on how bad we played and when we lose they give up on us. But then when we win they say ‘you’re not supposed to win,’” Oubre aid. “So it puts us in a uncomfortable position. But we are going to continue to play hard every night. … We’re in the mind frame of setting up something for next year.”
