National Basketball Association superstar Anthony Davis dominated all over the court in the New Orleans Pelicans' victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, as he finished with 32 points, 16 rebounds, eight assists, three blocks and three steals.
Davis also had 16 rebounds and Payton finished with 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for the Pelicans who led wire-to-wire.
Colin Cowherd is here to connect the dots between the lackluster start by Houston and guess who, off season acquisition Carmelo Anthony.
James Harden led the National Basketball Association in usage last season per CleaningtheGlass.com, at 40.4 percent. Before the 2017-18 season, the big man averaged 1.7 assists per game.
Pelicans: C Jahlil Okafor (right ankle sprain) entered the game late in the fourth quarter, playing less than two minutes.
Nikola Mirotic delivered 30 points and 10 rebounds in the blowout as the Pelicans led by as many as 29 points.
NO. The Pelicans averaged 14.9 turnovers per game last season, compared to 13.8 for the Rockets. "If we continue to play like this, we will be tough to beat".
Town's 'big shots' get flu shots
Anyone six months and older can get the flu shot at the Public Health Centre or at a pharmacy for those who are five years and up. Last year's flu season was the deadliest in at least four decades, 80-thousand people died of the flu and its complications.
In the end, Anthony Davis is going to be one of the favorites to win MVP and Defensive Player of the Year.
Can the New Orleans Pelicans' frontcourt keep up this torrid pace?
In his maiden outing for the Rockets, Anthony did not start for the first time in his National Basketball Association career and scored nine points off three-of-10 shooting, including one-of-five from three-point range.
They took the National Basketball Association by storm and many consider them a legitimate threat this year to dethrone the Golden State Warriors. "We've got to get our legs and then go after it".
New Orleans underwent some change of their own, bringing in Elfrid Payton to replace Rondo, and snagging Julius Randle to replace Cousins.
"Throughout the playoffs we started clicking more, finding little plays that teams that have been together a while already had that synergy", Paul said. Even though he's mostly come off the bench in his two seasons with the Rockets, Mike D'Antoni has referred to Eric Gordon as the Rockets sixth starter. After shooting 39 percent in his first 15 National Basketball Association games, the former No. 1 overall pick will see a bump in his shooting percentage, but struggle to keep his fouling to minimum.
