The Pelicans host the Toronto Raptors at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Smoothie King Center. Here are three things to know:
1) HOT SHOOTING
The Pelicans have converted better than 50 percent of their field goal attempts in four consecutive games, a franchise record for sustained accuracy. In fact, New Orleans’ 53.1 percent conversion rate is the NBA’s best over the four-game span.
2) FAMILIAR FACES
These two teams faced each other less than a week ago. The Raptors won a 122-118 decision at the Air Canada Centre, despite Jrue Holiday posting 34 points and 11 assists. Wednesday’s matchup will be the final meeting between the pair until the 2018-19 season.
3) MILLER TIME
Darius Miller continued his hot shooting off of the bench in Monday’s win over the Hawks, converting four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter. Over the last four games, Miller ranks ninth in the NBA in 3-pointers made per 100 possessions, converting 61.1 percent of his attempts.
