Pelicans SBNation Blog: The Bird Writes

Projected Starting Lineups

New Orleans: Lonzo Ball, Jrue Holiday, Brandon Ingram, Zion Williamson, Derrick Favors

Houston: Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Eric Gordon, Danuel House Jr., P.J. Tucker

The Rockets get their first look at Zion Williamson and will likely continue to run their small-ball lineup with Clint Capela out.

However, the Pelicans are one of the longest teams in the league and could pose some huge mismatches.

Isaiah Hartenstein played well the last time the Rockets faced the Pelicans, so is it possible that we could see some Hart run today?

The Pelicans are also winners of three straight and will look to make it four today. Rockets are looking to string consecutive wins.

Make sure to check out Coty’s preview before the game.

Go Rockets!
