Thunder-Pelicans: Can Darius Bazley slow down Zion Williamson?

Darius Bazley -USA TODAY Sports

The Oklahoma City Thunder will take on the New Orleans Pelicans tonight in hopes to further the tank after ending their 14-game losing streak on Tuesday against the Celtics.

With the win on Tuesday, the Thunder are tied with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the fifth-best odds in the draft lottery. While the Thunder look to further their tank, the Pelicans are trying to make a last effort for the play-in tournament, sitting four games behind the Warriors for the 10th seed.

A key matchup to keep your eye on is Darius Bazley trying to slow down Zion Williamson. Bazley’s defense will be challenged as Williamson has been dominant this season.
