    Brandon Ingram, Zion Williamson get the Pelicans a much needed win over the Grizzlies; Jrue Holiday and role players shine; Playoff race is tight

    It was a must win situation for the New Orleans Pelicans and Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson came through to get the Pelicans the victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. But it went beyond the two biggest names on the team as Jrue Holiday set the tone for the night and JJ Redick and Josh Hart came off the bench to lead the Pels to the win.

    What's gone wrong for the Pelicans through their first 2 games; Is there more to Zion's lack of minutes or is the team just being cautious?; Pelicans play the Memphis Grizzlies tonight

    What's gone wrong for the Pelicans through their first 2 games; Is there more to Zion's lack of minutes or is the team just being cautious?; Pelicans play the Memphis Grizzlies tonight

    The 0-2 start is not what the New Orleans Pelicans hoped for and a few recurring themes have come up for why they've struggled. Jake then looks at the minutes situation for Zion Williamson. Is it as simple as what David Griffin says? Or is the team hiding something? And is this something that could really upset Zion? Finally, the Pelicans take on the Memphis Grizzlies tonight in a must-win game for the team.

    Inconsistent Pelicans lose to the Jazz in NBA restart opener; Zion plays just 15 minutes and sits during crunch time

    Inconsistent Pelicans lose to the Jazz in NBA restart opener; Zion plays just 15 minutes and sits during crunch time

    The New Orleans Pelicans lost a very winnable game against the Utah Jazz. While the defense struggled, the rebounding was poor, Brandon Ingram did look like an All-Star and Jrue Holiday locked down Donovan Mitchell. But the game was completely overshadowed by Zion Williamson only playing 15 minutes and sitting on the bench down the stretch. Is it simply a minutes restriction? Is there an injury to Zion we don't know about? Something else? Jake looks at it all.
