    Pels have won 8 of their last 11, and a big unsung contributor has been Jaxson Hayes. Dude is about 6'11 and barely weighs 100 pounds. If he puts some muscle on that frame, he's going to be a beast.

    ESPN speculating that Zion will play Thursday vs Utah

    Override: Pelicans now say target date is Jan. 22, home game vs Spurs. Would love to see ESPN pick it up, but they've got Raptors/Sixers that night. Doubt they'd change for Zion.

    Fox Sports New Orleans, but we don't have that here.

    ESPN has indeed picked up the Zion debut game. Tip off pushed back to 8:30.

    as i predicted, ingram is going bonkers and is becoming a big star. 49 yesterday.

    super pumped to see zion and ingram work together. again, i think the trio of Z and B.I. and ball can be something. gotta get to the playoffs and not be the 8 seed that gets the lakers

    @Jmg do you think its going to be a problem getting Zion integrated into the rotation? By that I mean, who's losing minutes to him? Who's losing shots.....obviously the offense has been running through Ingram all year. Will that change, and how long will it take if it does? How will Ingram adjust to becoming the 2nd option?

    Me too. The Grizzlies had the longest active win streak in the Association until the Pels took them to the wood shed today.
