After having passed the threshold of the first quarter of the 2021/22 NBA regular season, New Orleans Pelicans is the last classified in the Western Conference with a record of seven wins and 19 losses after 26 games played.
Without Zion Williamson, the Louisiana franchise started the season without motivation or desire to compete (with a 2-14 record after 16 games). It is not expected that even with the return of Williamson himself the situation will change, more because it would be a miracle considering that each time they are further away from the playoffs than for anything else.
Worst of all is no longer the lack of Zion, but New Orleans is wasting Brandon Ingram’s best level since he began his NBA career five seasons ago (this is his sixth).
The current star of the Pelicans has averaged, in his last four games, 30.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 54.1% in field goals and 38.1% in triples, including a performance of 40 points in the most recent meeting of the franchise. against the Houston Rockets (where they have also lost).
Waiting for your partner
The return of Zion Williamson can certainly lead these New Orleans Pelicans to become more competitive. However, and although it seems that he is already in the final stretch of his recovery, the latest images show a terrible state of form, something that the No. 1 of the 2019 Draft has always had to deal with.
Zion at tonight’s game
