New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat
Julius Randle has been exactly what the Pelicans needed ever since his return from injury, despite him being some sort of liability in the defense, his offense is remarkable in many aspects and not only directly with his scoring contribution.
Today he will face Olynyk for the biggest part of this game; Olynyk is a big guy, with decent defense in the low post in set plays and good ability to protect the rim but a fairly slow player who had trouble against opponents with pace and agility. Randle is a fairly but matchup for Olynyk, he can shoot off the dribble, attack the basket and has already great chemistry with both Jrue and Davis. Julius averages 24.6 points in his last 5 games, he is in great shape, has the ability to draw fouls and get some easy points from the line and the Pelicans could very well target his matchup when Olynyk is on the court thus there is some value backing him today.
