All of the Hornets starters played well in a hard-fought win against the Pelicans.
Nicolas Batum had 15 points, six rebounds, five assists and two threes. Marvin Willliams had 14 points, five rebounds, four assists and two threes as well. Cody Zeller flirted with a double double with 13 and 8 with a block. And Courtney Lee finally broke out for 16 points, six rebounds, four treys, and a steal. The victory was a team effort with Jeremy Lin and Frank Kaminsky contributing in double digits as well. Courtney Lee has been dreadful despite the heavy minutes but he has a friendly fantasy game and should be owned in deeper leagues. Al Jefferson was in some serious foul trouble tonight which limited his playing time so don’t expect Cody Zeller to outplay Big Al on a nightly basis.
