New Orleans Pelicans Form


New Orleans Pelicans won just one of their four preseason games and began the regular season with a home defeat.

The Pelicans were outscored 64-44 in the second half as they were beaten 117-97 at home by Philadelphia.

Brandon Ingram led the team in scoring and assists, putting up 25 points and recording six assists in the loss.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker chipped in with 23 points while Devonte Graham shot an efficient 66.7% from field goal range for 18 points.

Jonas Valanciunas fell just shy of a double double as he racked up 12 boards and nine points.

Zion Williamson missed out as he continues his recover from a broken foot he suffered in the summer, and his expected to miss this trip to Chicago too.

Chicago Bulls Form


Chicago overhauled the roster in the offseason so their star names got plenty of preseason minutes.

The Bulls went 4-0 as they warmed up for the season, but there is still plenty of work to be done as the team tries to gel.

Chicago won their season-opening game for the first time since 2016/17 as they battled past Detroit.

They had to overcome a rusty first half that saw them score just 40 points before half-time, but they turned the game on its head after the restart.

Zach LaVine led the charge for the visitors as he racked up 34 points and chipped in with seven rebounds.

Nikola Vucevic extended his streak of recording at least a double double to 12 games as he put up 15 points and grabbed 15 rebounds.

Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso also made an impression as they forced some crucial turnovers in the win.

Chicago showed signs of rust and needing more time to gel in Detroit, but it as a promising outing.
