Mavs @ Pelicans Open Thread

Published: November 1, 2014

After a nice opening game win against the Orlando Magic the Pelicans welcome their Southwest Division rival Dallas Mavericks into the Smoothie King Center for game 2.

As McNamara pointed out earlier this week the Mavs are bringing in the number one ranked offense–posting an offensive rating of 124.9. The Pelicans defense has played well in preseason and in the opener, but some of the same old issues remain. Perimeter defense was worrisome at times and rotations were a little slow. Davis (and his 9 blocks!) and Asik will make up for a lot of mistakes, but this will still be a tough test.

For tonight’s open thread give us your boldest (yet realistic) prediction for season. I’ll start: I don’t think Davis has a real shot at MVP. But Defensive Player of the Year is happening.
