Utah Jazz vs New Orleans Pelicans: Lineups, preview & prediction 3/11/18

Behind the Numbers presented by HUB International Jazz at Pelicans

Davis, who Gentry said Saturday would be a game-time decision, did not play in Friday's 116-97 loss against the Washington Wizards - New Orleans' first defeat since February 9. He has averaged 11.3 points and 8.2 assists in 21 career games versus the Jazz, reaching double figures in assists on nine occasions.

The Pelicans scored at least 110 points in each of their 10 wins during the team's historic streak, but they've been held to less than 100 points in back-to-back games for the first time since November.

The Jazz (37-30) were led by Ricky Rubio who tallied a game-high 30 points to go along with 10 rebounds.

For the Pelicans, Birthday Boy Anthony Davis returned to the lineup from a sprained ankle and put up a triple-double of 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 BLOCKS.

After a slow start on the offensive end, Davis inspired his team with his activity on the defensive end, going into the half with three steals and six blocks.

CSA apologises to CA
Kazi and Eksteen were then contacted by the fans and met them at the gates, where it was decided that they would be allowed in. Both South African officials must be sacked for this, it is bewildering that they would both stoop so low as this.

Rondo has been offensively solid in the three games between the teams this season, averaging 14.3 points and 7.3 assists while shooting 58.1 percent and making seven of 14 from 3-point range. Only four games separate the No. 3 seed in the West from the 10th.

Attacking the boards: Utah outrebounded New Orleans, 55-38.

Just a few days ago, the matchup versus the New Orleans Pelicans loomed large. The New Orleans Pelicans forward has stepped up in the absence of running mate DeMarcus Cousins, who is out for the year with an Achilles injury.

New Orleans scored the first six points of the second quarter, and the score was tied six more times in the period.

Attendance: The announced attendance was 18,062 (sellout). Tuesday's matchup will be the final contest of New Orleans' current three-game homestand.
