Dejounte Murray set the franchise triple-double record in the 136-121 win, recording his 15th overall with a monster line of 32 points, 15 assists, and 10 rebounds. Perhaps most impressive of all, he did so while turning the ball over just once. Keldon Johnson also had a fantastic performance, scoring 26 points on 6-of-8 shooting from beyond the arc.
Meanwhile, the Pelicans suffered a loss to the Miami Heat on Thursday after winning four straight. Newest Pelican CJ McCollum scored 15 points in his debut.
The Spurs have won three straight meetings with New Orleans, including a 112-97 victory on December 12th.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Pelicans Prediction
With this version of the Spurs, it's important to not take too much stock into a win or loss on a daily basis. They might've shot the ball exceptionally well against the Hawks, but for every night burying triples at an unreal rate, they have two or three stinkers.
Both of these teams are wildly inconsistent, but that's what you'd expect given their rebuilding phases and current roster shortages. I'm going with the home team in a close one here for the simple fact that the Spurs are on a back-to-back.
Pelicans 114, Spurs 108
Opponent Role Player to Watch: He only had a single bucket in the previous meeting between these teams, but Herbert Jones is averaging 12.0 points and 4.3 rebounds per game in 2022.
