The New Orleans Pelicans are taking on the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night in Ohio. The focus of the game might be on Eric Gordon and the trade talk surrounding him, and he thinks he can play better than he has.

“Individually, I think I can give more, do more,” Gordon said after practice Monday, via ESPN. “People here think I should be this big-time 20-point (per game) scorer. This is more of a team game here, this system here. It’s a different adjustment. For me, now it’s all about playing as many games as possible and getting my body back to being used to playing an 82-game season, because I haven’t had that in almost two to three years now.”

So far the highlight of the game has been an alley-oop slammed home by small forward Al-Farouq Aminu. He gets almost a near half-court pass from point guard Brian Roberts.
