The Western Conference postseason race. If a person claims to have definitive knowledge of how this side of the NBA postseason bracket will play out, that person is lying. Still, with all of the scratching and clawing in the Western Conference, both the Pelicans and Kings have been solid teams all season.
Zion Williamson is still not healthy, and the Pelicans are far from the top seed that they were when he was on the floor. Still, it’s likely that they would have to play long stretches of incompetent basketball the rest of the season to miss the postseason entirely.
This feisty squad is going up against De’Aaron Fox, Domantas Sabonis, and the third-best team in the Western Conference. Two young squads on a Monday night. It’s unfortunate that Williamson won’t play but this will still be a late-night treat.
