“San Antonio’s a good team. They play at an extremely high pace. They share the basketball.” – Pelicans Coach Willie Green on the Spurs – 5:31 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Green’s staff includes Teresa Weatherspoon. Asked if it’s heartening to see more teams follow Spurs’ lead in hiring women coaches, Pop said:
“Sure. It’s not an exclusive situation that only men can understand basketball. That’s a pretty foolish notion, so the more the merrier.” – 5:25 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Pop said Willie Green has done a good job with the Pelicans in a tough situation:
“As a player, he was always a heady sort. He knew what was going on all the time, had a toughness about him. And that translated to his group, I think.” – 5:23 PM
Jason Calmes @BourbonStShots
With Zion news, it’s time to reset expectations for the season. If Pels manage to get to the play-in, great. Here are my questions for 2 of the key Pelicans moving forward. This is a time where freedom to make mistakes (w/ less pressure to win) could pay dividends in future – MP PM

Eliot Clough @EliotClough
How the #Pelicans fan base has returned to its avid support of the team, Zion, & BI over the last couple weeks despite the national narrative that Z is overweight & the Pels should tank is what this city is about. I’m so proud to cover this team. It is truly Pels 12 vs The World – 3:03 PM

Nothing new to report from Spurs injury report issued by the team this afternoon prior to their game tonight with New Orleans, the second of a back to back.
Primo, Wieskamp and Cacok remain with the Austin Spurs while Zach Collins continues to rehab from ankle surgery. – 2:16 PM
Matthew Tynan @Matthew_Tynan
No injuries to report for the Spurs heading into tonight’s game, save for Zach Collins. And on that note, we’re nearing time to start being on the lookout for Collins updates. Spurs/Pop loosely mentioned Christmas as a date to watch earlier this season. – 2:08 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Full Spurs core rotation available tonight.
Collins only player injured.
Primo, Wieskamp, and Cacok are with Austin – 2:04 PM

Last night 18 of the 3s the Nuggets attempted were wide open. They made 50% of those wide open 3s.
Overall though, 42% of Denver’s 3s were attempted wide open.
