CJ McCollum and the New Orleans Pelicans (27-36) will travel to Ball Arena to take on Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets (37-26) in part of the NBA Sunday slate. We have you covered on everything there is to know about the matchup before they face-off.

Things have been going quite well for the Pelicans since acquiring CJ McCollum from the Portland Trail Blazers at the NBA trade deadline. He’s provided a needed shot creation and playmaking presence in the backcourt—offering a major upgrade over the role previously filled by Devonte’ Graham.

The Pelicans hold legitimate playoff aspirations and currently find themselves in the final play-in spot in the Western Conference. There’s been increased optimism about Zion Williamson’s recovery from foot surgery, but it remains to be seen when he’ll be back in the lineup.

Nikola Jokic missed the Nuggets’ previous outing but a 31-point outing from DeMarcus Cousins was enough to get a win over the Houston Rockets. Now, Jokic will be back in the lineup and will look to pick up where he left off with his MVP-level contributions.

KYRIE EARLY LANDING SPOTS: The 2021-22 NBA season has been a strange one for Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets, to say the least.
