Brandon Ingram is back and Pelicans got a win against Portland(115-104). Brandon(21 pts) is establishing himself as a leader and first option on the team, we’ll see what is going to happen with Zion’s comeback. Oldest of Holiday brothers, Jrue is still their best player(22 pts, 10 ast). Blazers after signing Carmelo Anthony, got some veteran player with experience and isolating ability. Without Lillard, they couldn’t do anything right on the court. CJ gave his average(22 pts) and Hassan with another double double game(14 pts, 14 rebs). Carmelo in his comeback game scored just 10 points as starter. Playing like this, Portland doesn’t deserve to make the PO.
