It’s time for Basketball: Spurs vs Pelicans

Welcome to the Game Thread. Veterans of the Game Thread know how we do things around here, but for all you newbies we have a few rules. Our community guidelines apply and basically say be cool, no personal attacks, don’t troll and don’t swear too much.

The Pelicans got some bad news yesterday, as it was announced that Zion Williamson had an injury setback and his return has been pushed back indefinitely. Despite the absence of Williamson, the Pelicans have a lot of young talent, and even though they are at the bottom of the Western Conference standings, they have played close games with a lot of good teams. This isn’t an easy win, by any means, and the Spurs are on the second game of a back-to-back after being blown out by the Nuggets last night.

Hopefully, tonight Keldon Johnson can continue his good shooting from last night, and the guard duo of Derrick White and Dejounte Murray can dominate their New Orleans counterparts. Jonas Valanciunas is an elite center, and if Jakob Poeltl can keep the matchup even, the Spurs should get a win tonight. Let’s watch and find out.

Game Prediction:

The Coyote will kiss a baby tonight.

For the want of a foot
Their fate it did seal
In the cellar they were put
It was their Achille’s heel!

One final word:

Go Spurs GOOOOOO!!
