The Brooklyn Nets face the New Orleans Pelicans on the road Saturday at 7 p.m.
According to STATS...
- This will be the first meeting between these teams in 2015-16. The Pelicans have won the last three games in this series after the Nets had taken the previous three meetings.
- With their win over Sacramento on Thursday, the Pelicans snapped their eight-game losing streak when playing without Anthony Davis (they had been 0-5 without him this season).
- Norris Cole recorded his second double-double of the season (but his first career points/assists one) when he had 17 points and 10 assists against Sacramento on Thursday. He had just one double-double in his first four seasons.
- Ryan Anderson tied his career-high for points in a game when he poured in 36 in Thursday's victory over Sacramento; he also had 36 points against Chicago, December 2, 2013. Anderson has now had 20+ points in each of his last three contests.
