1. Shorthanded but still strong At full strength, the Pelicans have looked like a contender. With their stars out, they look very tough to beat, anyway. The Rockets will once again see the version of the Pelicans that does not include Zion Williamson, who left Monday’s game with a strained right hamstring and was ruled out for Wednesday’s game against the Rockets. Brandon Ingram, an All-Star in 2020, was already out with a bruised left great toe.

Nearly two months later, this has been shown to not be unusual. The Pelicans are the top offensive team in the NBA in the fourth quarter this season. The Rockets have excelled defensively down the stretch of close games and have the best defensive rating in the NBA in clutch situations. But they are last offensively in the final five minutes of games with a margin or five points or fewer. In New Orleans, the Rockets made 1 of 10 3-pointers with nine turnovers in the fourth quarter. They still struggle at closing time. 3. Finishing school, II After misfiring from the 3-point line through much of December, Rockets guard Jalen Green has seemed to have rediscovered his shooting touch. In the past seven games, he has averaged 22.
But the Pelicans this season have gone 4-1 when Ingram and Williamson have not played. Both have played exceedingly well against the Rockets with Ingram averaging 29. 8 points on 54. 1 percent shooting in four games the past seasons and Williamson scoring 26 points when he made 8 of 9 shots against the Rockets in November. Williamson has been especially dominant lately, averaging 30 points on 62. ;7 percent shooting in his past 10 games. But guard C. J. McCollum, who was struggling when the Rockets played in New Orleans in November, has been hot, averaging 26 points and making 46.

Rockets at Pelicans: Five things to watchPlaying better could reflect improvement, a popular topic of conversation about the Rockets in the past few days. But as they face the Pelicans in the first game of a back-to-back, with the similarly potent Jazz to be at Toyota Center on Thursday, the Rockets would like the more tangible evidence that strides are being made that would come with a win. That will not be easy. They have lost their past four meetings with the Pelicans and have a four-game losing streak in New Orleans. The Pelicans return home after losing games in Memphis and Philadelphia, but they are 16-4 in Smoothie King Center with a four-game home winning streak. The Pelicans, one of just four teams in the top 10 in offensive and defensive rating, are still third in the Western Conference even after consecutive losses, just one game behind the Nuggets for the top spot. After a 10-5 December, the Pelicans’ Willie Green was named the Western Conference coach of the month.

Finishing school The Rockets’ loss to the Mavericks on Monday was the latest example of their difficulties offensively late in games. It was far from the first. When the Rockets previous played the Pelicans in New Orleans, they had tied the game with two minutes left following a Jalen Green alley-oop slam and a slick Kevin Porter Jr. drive. The next three possessions ended in turnovers. The Pelicans surged to a 119-106 win, outscoring the Rockets 29-8 to finish the game.
They are second in steals, leading to the sort of live-ball turnovers that plague the Rockets. The Pelicans scored 32 points off turnovers in the first meeting, 15 in the fourth quarter. That ended with a Jose Alvarado steal when the Rockets were ready to dribble out the final seconds, angering Kevin Porter Jr. who shoved Alvarado, leading to double technical fouls and ejections. 5. Boo this Fans at Smoothie King Center still boo Eric Gordon throughout his games in New Orleans, usually with every time he touches the ball. It has not worked well.

1 points, making 39. 3 percent of his 3-pointers. But as he returns to New Orleans, where he scored 33 points — one shy of his season high — Green has not been a factor as a scorer in fourth quarters. In the 11 games since he scored 12 fourth-quarter points in the Dec. 11 win against the Milwaukee Bucks, he has scored 18 fourth-quarter points, taking an average of just 1. 9 shots in the fourth quarter.

He averaged 8. 4 third-quarter points in that stretch. Green made 2 of 3 shots in the fourth quarter of the Rockets’ game in New Orleans. 4. A turnover turnaround? The Rockets went from committing 25 turnovers against the Knicks to a season-low 10 against Mavericks. One game might not be enough to indicate the problem has been solved. And the 25 they committed Saturday were not a season high. That was the 26 turnovers the Rockets committed in their previous game in New Orleans. While the Rockets lead the league in turnovers per game, giving up the most points off turnovers, the Pelicans force the fourth-most turnovers in the NBA and average the third-most points scored off turnovers.
