New Orleans Pelicans    

The New Orleans Pelicans will welcome the Minnesota Timberwolves to Smoothie King Center for an NBA game on Wednesday. The Pelicans lost 98-99 in their last game over the Nuggets. After Jokic put Denver back in front, the Pelicans had three shots to win it before losing their fifth straight. McCollum’s missed turnaround was rebounded by Pelicans forward Herb Jones, whose putback was blocked out of bounds by Bruce Brown.

After a timeout, the Pelicans got the ball to McCollum for a corner 3 that clanged off the rim, leaving him 0 for 8 from deep on an otherwise productive, 20-point night. “CJ got open, got a clean look at it,” Pelicans coach Willie Green said. “Just didn’t go down.” Trailing 79-63 with 4:40 left in the third quarter, the Pelicans surged back with the help of 6-foot point guard Jose Alvarado, who scored 14 of his 17 points in the last 13 minutes with an array of crowd-pleasing driving floaters and layups.

Minnesota Timberwolves

The Timberwolves on the other hand lost 119-114 against the Rockets in their last game. Anthony Edwards had 31 points and D’Angelo Russell tied a season high with 30 for the Timberwolves, who had won two straight.

“You are what you repeatedly do,” Minnesota coach Chris Finch said. “We’ve repeatedly struggled with these types of games so focus… has to be part of the problem, but we just didn’t have enough guys play well either.” The Rockets were clinging to a one-point lead before Green scored the next five points, capped by a 3-pointer, to make it 105-99 with two minutes to go.

Edwards made the second of two free throws before Green struck again, knocking down a long 2-pointer to leave Houston up 107-100 with 90 seconds to go. Kenyon Martin Jr. then stole the ball from D’Angelo Russell and finished on the other end with a dunk to extend the lead to nine with less than a minute left.
