Despite their poor record, the San Antonio Spurs were able to secure a play-in spot. They were able to do so due to their consistent play during the last few games of the regular season.
The odds are against the Spurs being able to win a series against the New Orleans Pelicans. Dejounte Murray is one of the team's most consistent players. However, he was also dealing with an illness during the last few games of the regular season.
Despite their disappointing record, the New Orleans Pelicans were able to secure a play-in berth.
The last time New Orleans participated in the playoffs was in 2018. However, it's uncertain if they'll be able to make it past the first round due to the absence of star player Zion Williamson.
In February, the team acquired CJ McCollum from the Portland Trail Blazers. He immediately became a vital part of the team's lineup. Also, veteran center Jonas Valanciunas has been performing well in his first season with the Pelicans.
