The Pelicans travel to Toronto to face the Raptors at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the Air Canada Centre. Here are three things to know:
1) INSIDE MAN
Anthony Davis leads the NBA in second-chance points, scoring 56 on offensive rebounds in just 10 games this season. The Pelicans’ All-NBA big-man ranks third overall in interior scoring, chipping in 160 points in the paint, trailing only Giannis Antetokounmpo (208) and LeBron James (178).
2) LONG ROAD
Thursday’s game concludes the Pelicans’ longest road trip of the season, which totaled eight days and four cities. The Pelicans won the first three games on the swing, increasing their road winning streak to four games — their longest since 2011.
3) MILLER TIME
Pelicans swingman Darius Miller has converted 9 of 16 shots from 3-point range and scored 32 combined points during New Orleans’ current three-game winning streak — a notable bounce-back for the offseason acquisition. Not only did Miller go scoreless in the previous four games, he logged just 13 total minutes.
