The New Orleans Pelicans start off a new chapter in their Zion Williamson era. Devonte’ Graham is the new point guard in place of Lonzo Ball while Willie Green has taken over as head coach. Williamson hasn’t played in any games so far as he is recovering from a right foot injury. Meanwhile, Brandon Ingram played just the first game against the Timberwolves and is out for this game.

Players like Jonas Valanciunas, Naji Marshall, Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Trey Murphy III have stepped up so in preseason. Moreover, everyone is paying attention to the New Orleans Pelicans’ defense. They were one of the worst defensive teams in the league last season and the new coach is expected to bring a change.

Key Player – Trey Murphy III

Trey Murphy III has stepped up off the bench in the absence of Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram. Murphy led the team in scoring for the past two games, averaging 18.5 points and eight rebounds a game. He dropped 21 points in his first-ever pre-season game against the Timberwolves and posted a double-double in the last game against the Magic, with 17 points and 10 rebounds.

Trey Murphy III was great in the 2021 NBA Summer League as well and is establishing himself as a solid rotation piece for coach Willie Green. The 21 year old gets it done on both ends of the floor and has shot the three-ball at a high clip so far.

Utah Jazz Preview

Coach Quin Snyder has tried out different lineups in his first two preseason games. Former Warrior Eric Paschall has received decent minutes and has also looked good so far.

Royce O’Neale is the only original starter who has played both games, averaging 7.5 points per game. Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley also joined the team in the second game against the Spurs.

Bojan Bogdanovic is out due to soreness in his left shoulder, while the coach has yet to play Joe Ingles and Rudy Gobert in the preseason. The Jazz have lost both their preseason games but that shouldn’t be alarming considering they were never at full strength. Once all the players start playing and get into a rhythm, the Utah Jazz are expected to go back to their dominant ways.

Key Player – Donovan Mitchell

It isn’t far fetched to say that Utah Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell is the best player on the floor for either team. He is an All-Star who is making his case for being one of the best shooting guards in the league.

Mitchell dropped just 10 points in his 2021-22 preseason debut in the last game against the Spurs on 5-19 shooting, including 0-6 from deep. He is expected to have a better shooting night against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Pelicans vs Jazz Match Prediction

The Utah Jazz are overwhelming favorites to win this game because they have Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley back. Additionally, the absence of Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram for the New Orleans Pelicans tips the scales in the Jazz’s favor even more.

Two NBA championship contenders will go head-to-head when the Brooklyn Nets take on the Philadelphia 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center in a preseason game on Monday.

The Nets are coming off a narrow 119-115 win against defending champions Milwaukee Bucks. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers inflicted a 125-113 loss upon the 2019 champions Toronto Raptors in their last game.

Brooklyn Nets Preview

The Brooklyn Nets played close to their best lineup against the Milwaukee Bucks, and both their A-listers showed up on the day, with Kevin Durant and James Harden getting some good minutes under their belt.

However, head coach Steve Nash will be concerned about the fact that the margin of victory was only four points, despite the fact that the Nets starters played against the Bucks reserves.

Nash will be looking to give his fringe players and rookies more minutes on Monday, which could lead to a scrappy affair. Defense has been a major issue for the Brooklyn Nets in the ‘Big 3′ era, and the franchise will be looking to iron it out before the new season starts.

Key Player – James Harden

After struggling with an injury in the Eastern Conference semi-finals matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks, James Harden has been working hard in his rehabilitation, and he is likely to start the game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Harden scored eight points, dished out four assists and grabbed four boards in the Nets’ recent win, and will be looking to take it up a notch against the Philadelphia 76ers.

It’s easy to forget that Harden is a former MVP and one of the most dominant offensive forces in the league, and fans can expect him to have a big game tonight.

G – James Harden | G – Bruce Brown Jr. | F – Joe Harris | F – Kevin Durant | C – Blake Griffin

Philadelphia 76ers Preview

The Philadelphia 76ers have been the subject of significant media attention, mostly because of the Ben Simmons trade drama.

However, it was clear in their last game that Doc Rivers doesn’t want his side to get affected by these reports, as the 76ers put in a solid performance to dispatch the Raptors.

Seth Curry had a productive outing with 15 points, and Rivers and the Philadelphia 76ers management will be keeping a keen eye on Isaiah Joe and Georges Niang this season, who registered 15 and 16 points, respectively.

The 76ers go into the game against the Brooklyn Nets as the underdogs, but possess the ability to conjure up a narrow win.

Key Player – Tobias Harris

Tobias Harris is likely to be assigned with a more prominent role in the 2021-22 NBA campaign, considering Ben Simmons already has one foot out the door.

Harris should be more than up for the task, considering how well he performed in the 2021 postseason and made the small forward spot his own.

Harris’ physicality and shooting remain his biggest attributes, and he will surely be one of the players to watch out for when the two teams take to court on Monday.Philadelphia 76ers Predicted Lineup

G – Seth Curry, G – Isaiah Joe, F – Danny Green, F – Tobias Harris, C – Andre Drummond

Nets vs 76ers Match Prediction

The result of the game will likely depend on the kind of side the two coaches field, but it is safe to say that the Brooklyn Nets possess enough fire power to get past a team like Philadelphia 76ers.

The Brooklyn Nets offense is the best in the league by some distance, and they should not have a problem taking care of business against Joel Embiid and co.
