Al-Farouq Aminu scored 21 points in 8-of-15 shooting with three 3-pointers, eight rebounds, an assist, two steals and a block in Game 3 on Thursday.
Aminu tried to challenge Anthony Davis with the ball, but it didn’t go as planned most of the time. He was able to get a nice dunk on the baseline on one of his drives, but his 3-for-8 mark from deep wasn’t enough to have the Pelicans respect his outside shooting. They just draped Anthony Davis on Aminu and had AD patrol the paint and play strong-side help defense. Aminu is goping to have to be more efficient with his drive and his outside shooting otherwise the Pelicans will continue with their defensive gameplan of suffocating the Blazers guards.
