    Monday’s game will be the first time that sophomore sensation Zion Williamson will face superstar Stephen Curry. The matchup is a joint broadcast by Marvel Entertainment and ESPN, who are collaborating for an Avengers-based telecast. Three players from each team – Steph Curry, Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green from the Golden State Warriors and Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball from the New Orleans Pelicans – will be the main feature.

    This week could prove pivotal in the Golden State Warriors’ hopes of making the playoffs.

    In the period between facing the Rockets and the lowly OKC Thunder, Steve Kerr’s team will play the New Orleans Pelicans twice on the road. Should the Pels win both those games, they would close the gap on the Golden State Warriors, which stands at three games, with only six matches to play after that.

    The New Orleans Pelicans will travel to the Ball Arena on Wednesday to take on the Denver Nuggets.

    Both the Nuggets and Pelicans come into their games on the back of dominant wins. Michael Porter Jr. lit up the Memphis Grizzlies with 31 points for the Nuggets, while all five Pelicans starters scored double-digit points to overcome the LA Clippers on Monday.

    The New Orleans Pelicans are just one place below the play-in tournament spots. However, it seems unlikely that they will be able to salvage a top-10 spot in the Western Conference standings.

    Despite having two All-Star caliber forwards in Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram, the Pelicans have been inconsistent all year. They have allowed the fifth-most points to opposing teams this season, a trait not consistent with coach Stan Van Gundy’s teams.

    Though their fixture run-in is favorable, the New Orleans Pelicans are three games behind the Golden State Warriors, who currently occupy the final play-in tournament spot. Furthermore, Steph Curry has been in tremendous form recently and looks like he can carry the Warriors into the postseason on his own.

    Pelicans fans will instead be looking toward next season. Both Ingram and Williamson are tied to long-term contracts and therefore are going nowhere.

    However, the New Orleans Pelicans front office will need to create a stronger unit around them, particularly on defense. They will also have to find a new point guard as Lonzo Ball looks set to leave the team at the end of the season.

    Although the New Orleans Pelicans have been disappointing this campaign, Zion Williamson has been utterly dominant in his sophomore year. The 20-year-old recently became the first NBA player since Michael Jordan to score 2,000 career points before his 80th game and has an offensive rating of 126.

    Williamson has a huge career ahead of him. He is an extremely efficient player, making over 60% of his field goals and grabbing over seven rebounds per game. That has helped contribute to the New Orleans Pelicans allowing the fewest rebounds per game this season for any team.

    Despite seeing their playoff hopes knocked by Jamal Murray’s injury, the Denver Nuggets have remained on course and will still be one of the most dangerous teams in the postseason.

    They have won seven of their last ten games, including wins against the Miami Heat and Portland Trail Blazers. In that time, they have also struggled against the scoring might of Steph Curry twice, which could be a precursor to their defensive struggles in the backcourt.

    Over the same period, the Denver Nuggets have ranked bottom in the NBA for allowing the most opposition fast-break points. The Denver Nuggets guard’s depth took another blow at the end of last week, with Will Barton suffering a hamstring strain. He remains without a timetable for return.
