Trap game! Pelicans have gone 6-4 over the last ten games and Ingram is confirmed to start.

No Whiteside again tonight, so we will be running the Rudy Gay led small ball lineup again when Gobert is out. I was hoping that the Jazz would try playing Paschall alongside Rudy Gay in the small ball lineup to possibly help the defense, but Paschall is out again for personal reasons.

Go Jazz!

Man, if it wasn't for Clarkson, we'd be down by about 50......

We really need Paschall back with Hassan out.
Also bugs me that Gobert thinks he's too good to inbound the ball.

Our small ball lineups with Gobert off the floor only got outscored by one point last night, so that's a step in the right direction, but yes, I would like to see whether playing young, energetic Paschall in those lineups alongside center Rudy Gay could help turn the small ball lineups in to a net positive. I am skeptical about playing Paschall as the small ball center himself because of lack of height and a seeming rebounding limitation, but I think he could play PF alongside center Gay, help defend, box out and maybe get some finishes at the rim. Paschall moves his feet and stays in front of his man reasonably well imo.
