Jason Kidd on the progress of rookie Jaden Hardy: “You saw his energy and his speed. Hopefully in the next 3 games we can figure out how to get him some minutes in the rotation to see how he handles that. Hopefully that starts tonight and we can see how he digests those minutes” – 7:57 PM

We think of DeMar DeRozan as an isolation player. However, he has run the 9th most picks and rolls of any player in the NBA this year
Of top 60 players who run pick and roll DeRozan is 4th best in the NBA only Doncic, Durant and Curry are better

Gregg Popovich once said that players appreciate a night off for problem games on the schedule.
The Pelicans’ odds against the Mavericks weren’t great to start with, so sitting CJ McCollum, Larry Nance Jr. and maybe Jonas Valanciunas is the right move. https://t.co/quOfTf7MYj pic.twitter.com/ZUXeik4lbK2:51 PM

New Orleans Pelicans @PelicansNBA

Jonas Valančiūnas (Right Hand Sprain) is questionable ; CJ McCollum (rest) is out for tonight’s game at Dallas
