San Antonio Spurs Take On Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans This Saturday


  • Spurs Sports & Entertainment
After blowing out the Houston Rockets on opening night, the New Orleans Pelicans arrive in San Antonio as one of the surprise teams in the new NBA season.

Five-time All-Star Anthony Davis is the fulcrum for the Pelicans’ early success and should prove a handful for San Antonio’s seven-foot tandem of Jakob Poeltl and Pau Gasol. Sparked by shooting guard DeMar DeRozan’s multifaceted game, the Spurs offense has been firing on all cylinders in recent victories. LaMarcus Aldridge’s presence in the low post and on the boards has been key for San Antonio in the early going, particularly away from home. Coach Pop continues to weather the storm at the point guard position with Bryn Forbes and Patty Mills in spot duty, which has proven detrimental to the Spurs defense.

In what has suddenly become a stacked Southwest division, expect a tight contest against Davis and the young Pels.
