The New Orleans Pelicans and the San Antonio Spurs will battle it out tonight for a chance to make it to the NBA playoffs.
Tonight is the second night that teams will face off in the NBA play-in tournament for a shot at the playoffs. Last night the Brooklyn Nets kicked off the action with a win against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Minnesota Timberwolves did the same with a win against the Los Angeles Clippers. Tonight, the Pelicans and the Spurs will have their shot to stay in the running for the playoffs.
The Pelicans will host the Spurs since they are the ninth seed in the western conference. This is a win-or-go-home game for both teams. The winner of this game will get another chance to compete for a spot in the playoffs and the loser will be eliminated.
This matchup should be an interesting one because the Pelicans are considered one of the best transition offenses in basketball and, according to CBSSports, are ranked ninth in offense.
However, the Spurs have arguably one of the greatest coaches in Greg Popovich. And even though the Spurs’ team may consist of players with a lack of playoff experience, Popovich is more than capable of coaching this inexperienced team to a win.
