Through 2 Quarters

Although the New Orleans Pelicans were the underdogs at tipoff, they’ve since taken control of the game. They are way out in front at halftime with a 58-41 lead over the Washington Wizards.

New Orleans has enjoyed the tag-team combination of center Jonas Valanciunas and small forward Brandon Ingram. The former has 11 points and two assists along with six boards, while the latter has 13 points and two assists in addition to three rebounds. One thing the Pelicans have working against them is foul trouble: Jaxson Hayes, Tomas Satoransky, and Herbert Jones have all picked up some fouls.

Washington hasn’t had any offensive standouts so far with all players held to eight points or fewer.

This is the least points Washington has had yet this season going into the third quarter.
