Matchup to Watch

▪ Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday was expected to play his first game this season Friday. He took a leave of absence to care for his then-pregnant wife, who has since had surgery to remove a benign brain tumor.
▪ The Pelicans are second in the NBA in shots blocked at 6.3 per game.
▪ The Pelicans finally won this season, topping the Boston Celtics in New Orleans. They overcame a 37-point game by Isaiah Thomas that night.
▪ The Pelicans waived former Hornet Lance Stephenson after he suffered a groin injury requiring surgery.
