76ers vs Pelicans Preview

The Ben Simmons saga that took up the bulk of the summer has spilled into the regular season, with Sixers head coach Doc Rivers announcing on Tuesday that Simmons would be suspended for this game. Rivers tossed Simmons from Tuesday’s practice, and tensions are high on the team heading into the opener.

The team’s star center Joel Embiid was curt in his response to questions about Simmons, suggesting a team rift that may be quite deep.

“I’m trying to win,” Embiid said about Simmons, via ESPN. “And to win, you have to have that relationship with your teammates. I do have that relationship with all my teammates. But at the end of the day, our job is not to babysit somebody. We get paid to produce on the court, go out, play hard, win some games … that’s what we get paid for. We don’t get paid to come out here and try to babysit somebody. So that’s not our job, and I’m sure my teammates feel that way. We’re really focused on just winning and playing as a team.”

On the other side, the Pelicans have a new head coach in Willie Green after finishing with a 31-41 record last year. New Orleans finished 9th in the NBA in scoring (114.6 points a game) and 22nd in the league in points allowed, with 114.9.

Improving on defense is a primary goal for the Pelicans this year, according to their new head coach.

“This may sound crazy, but just being better than we were last year,” Green said. “Protecting the paint is going to be key for us. Keeping teams off the free-throw line. Contesting at a high rate. Contesting 3s. And just being aggressive is really just our mentality. No matter what building we go in, but especially at home.”

“The past two, three years — since I’ve been here — defensively, we’ve been horrendous,” Pelicans reserve Josh Hart added. “So that’s something we need to change. Especially if we want to get to our goal, the playoffs, this year. That’s what we have to do.”

Here’s a look at the predicted starting lineups for both teams:

76ers Predicted Starting Lineup: Tyrese Maxey (G) Seth Curry (G) Danny Green (F) Furkan Korkmaz (F), Joel Embiid (C)

Pelicans Projected Starting Lineup: Devonte’ Graham (G) Nickeil Alexander-Walker (G) Garrett Temple (F) Brandon Ingram (F) Jonas Valanciunas (C)
