The New Orleans Pelicans Go For The Sweep Today At Home
The New Orleans Pelicans can wrap up their playoff series with Portland with a win today versus the Trail Blazers.
New Orleans took a commanding three games to nothing lead on Thursday night with a 119 to 102 victory in front of a raucous crowd at the Smoothie King Center. Head Coach Alvin Gentry wants the fans to bring the noise again today.
It wasn't just the fans who showed up Thursday night. Superstar Anthony Davis did what he does, getting a double double with 28 points and 11 rebounds, but his supporting cast may have been more impressive. Nicola Mirotic hung 30 points while pulling down 8 rebounds, and Jrue Holliday and Rajon Rondo both had 16 points. Holliday's defense continued to impress, as he shut down Portland's leader Damion Lillard.
The team will need to get that same level of support to close out the sweep today.
The game tips off at 4 PM.
