San Antonio Spurs at New Orleans Pelicans 4/11/18, Prediction & Odds

The Portland Trail Blazers came out at the top of an absolute dogfight in the middle of the pack in the Western Conference, taking the No. 3 seed that they occupied for most of the second half of the season back from the Jazz on the last day of the season.

The Blazers then had another chance, but Damian Lillard missed the shot, and while Nurkic again nearly got the rebound, Davis got it away from him and forced him to foul. The Pelicans scored their most points ever in 67 all-time games against the Spurs, surpassing their total in a 121-116 victory on February 28.

Oklahoma City is expected to defeat Memphis, who has nothing to play for and owns the NBA's second-worst record. "There's a lot of things we can get better at", said Davis after the win. Keeping Davis from powering full-steam ahead downhill is something that Nurkic nor any other frontcourt player on the Trail Blazers roster succeded at in Game 1.

The Pelicans halted Portland's furious fourth-quarter comeback to take a 1-0 lead in the First Round of the 2018 NBA Playoffs with a 97-95 win in front of 19,882 (sellout) at Moda Center. "I just think, like I've said, with Kawhi Leonard not dressed and playing, I don't know if there's a better two-way player in the game". "We thought it was important to dictate the tempo and I thought I did that, especially in the second quarter".

Soon after, New Orleans began clamping down on defense and ramping up its tempo in transition, closing the second quarter on a 19-4 run that earned the Pelicans a standing ovation as they walked off the floor at halftime with a 61-43 lead.

Tony Parker (11), Kyle Anderson (10) and Bryn Forbes (10) rounded out the Silver and Black's double-figure scoring.

The San Antonio Spurs will take on the New Orleans Pelicans in one of the National Basketball Association games on Wednesday.

The Pelicans enjoyed a 78-42 advantage in points in the paint, a 32-17 advantage in fast-break points and out-rebounded the Spurs, 51-38.

These two teams split four games in the regular season, with each team winning once on the road.

"We're in the playoffs; it doesn't matter who we play", New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry said.

Mirotic had two baskets and Rondo one to give New Orleans an 85-65 lead. The Pelicans have now won six consecutive games dating back to the regular season. Davis' Pelicans were swept in the first round of the 2015 playoffs by the eventual-champion Warriors. "It was just one of those games we had to fight through the fatigue, physically and mentally".

The wild, wild west is giving writers around the country headaches as they try to make sense of incredibly competitive NBA Playoff matchups.
