Willie Green’s final pregame question tonight came from Clippers media, asking essentially if Jonas Valanciunas saves his outside shooting for the Clippers.
Well he just drained his first 3-point look on the night, this after not attempting a single one versus the Timberwolves. – 8:14 PM

Brandon Ingram holding his finish on jumpers after contact is fast becoming my favorite thing – 8:12 PM

Tonight basically starts an 11-game road trip for Clippers. That is, they’re in a different American city for the rest of January:
– New Orleans
– San Antonio
– LA! (vs Pacers on MLK)
– Denver
– Philadelphia
– New York
– Washington
– Orlando
– Miami
– Charlotte
– Indiana – 8:08 PM

Definitely a creative way to take pregame jumpers by Josh Hart pic.twitter.com/uKG9VotYXh8:03 PM

Pelicans have been a completely different team in the clutch since Dec. 15 (the OKC 60-foot winner).
Prior to that, the Pels were 1-9 in clutch games. Since then, they are 6-3.
*The NBA defines clutch as the score within five in the final five minutes.
A statistical breakdown: – 7:56 PM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
The Grizzlies nailed a marketing masterpiece when they allowed young fans to trade in opposing jerseys on Thursday.
First in line, an 11-year-old from Benton, Arkansas, ready to fork over Curry for Morant.
The scene: “I’m sorry, Zion, but you got to go.”

Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Mark Daigneault said when he drew a lob play for Tre Mann “he was looking for some candy, originally we drew it up for the other side, but he wanted it on that side so I said ‘that’s fine’” – 7:08 PM

Also, no changes to who is and isn’t available for the Clippers tonight. – 6:32 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Ty Lue’s here before tonight’s game in New Orleans. He calls getting back in transition and coverages to guard Jonas Valanciunas on his pops behind the three-point arc as the two biggest things. – 6:31 PM
