Nerlens Noel played just 23 minutes on Wednesday, collecting four quick fouls against the Pelicans overwhelming front line.
Both DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis were able to overpower or out position Noel early on in this one, resulting in the quick fouls and disappointing minutes total. It was quite the let down after his 15 point, four steal, two block explosion against the Thunder on Wednesday, but owners can forgive Noel for struggling against the most talented front court in the league. Even on an off night it was nice to see the Mavs’ starting center grab six boards and chip in defensively with one steal and one block. He’ll look to recapture his form on Friday against the Grizzlies.
