Preview: New Orleans Pelicans (3-3) at Phoenix Suns (4-2)
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Nov 10, 2013
It wasn’t a pretty game, but for the Phoenix Suns it was one they’d easily take. Jeff Hornacek’s team overcame stagnant offense and a lead seemingly way too slim considering how poorly the New Orleans Pelicans were playing. Davis, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 Draft, is coming off a career performance in which he had 32 points, 12 rebounds, four blocks and three assists in a 96-85 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Pelicans are riding their first two-game win streak into town. His explosiveness wasn’t what it usually is, and he looked off balance trying to chase New Orleans speedy guards across screens and otherwise. That much should not be ignored. With that said, the NBA like all professional sports is a result driven business and in that sense, it’s been hard to watch Frye struggle the way he has during his comeback – especially at the offensive end. When his shot is on like it was in the 103-96 loss to the Thunder it’s absolutely thing of beauty.
