OG Anunoby will start for the injured Norman Powell (hip) on Wednesday against the Pelicans.
OG played well in his first career start Tuesday against the Rockets. He’s long, athletic and defensive minded and actually spent time guarding James Harden. In his start he played 30 minutes while scoring16 points on 6-for-8 shooting and he added three makes from deep. That’s a bit of a bizarro line for his game, he’s more of a target for defensive stats, but it’s nice to see him have success shooting the ball. He averaged 2.6 defensive stats per game in 25.1 minutes and shot 31.1 percent from deep in his second of two years at Indiana.
