New Orleans Pelicans @ Sacramento Kings: Open Thread

Published: November 18, 2014

The New Orleans Pelicans tip against the Sacramento Kings tonight at 9:00 CT, and the game is in Sacramento. The game is on 105.3 FM, Fox Sports New Orleans, and NBA TV.

The Kings are 6-4 while the Pelicans are 5-4. The Pelicans are clearly coming off a horrendous loss in Portland following a total breakdown and a 34-13 fourth quarter last night. The Kings’ last game was a win against the Spurs in Sacramento.

Neither team is battling long-term injury, but Asik may sit again with a sore back (game time decision). Meanwhile, DeMarcus Cousins is playing with high usage and at a high level. The Kings are quite the rebounding team, so missing Asik could really hurt tonight.

We’ll update this post with any news, relevant articles, or great comments, of course, particularly Asik’s status.

My questions to start the chit-chat:

  • How much time will Davis get guarding Cousins, and how will he do?
  • How will Jimmer Fredette do against the team that drafted him and let him go?
  • What is up with Eric Gordon?

Keep a look out for the following former New Orleans players: Carl Landry, Darren Collison, and Omri Casspi (sort of).

Update: Asik is OUT for the game tonight.
