New Orleans Pelicans vs Memphis Grizzlies
Conley bounced back after a terrible performance in his first game in 2019 and had very good games against the Nets and Spurs but
wasn't enough for the Grizzlies who have yet to win a single game in 2019 (0-3). The bad news for Conley is that he has a very tough matchup against Jrue today. In their first meeting of the season, Jrue played lockdown defense on Conley who finished the game with a very low 9p (16.6% FG, 5-6 FT) but also 10 assists. The Pelicans have been very poor defensively both as a team and individually, with the exceptions of great and consistent two-way players Jrue and Davis. Conley is not expected to contribute a lot in scoring once again but he should help his team with assists, which is very common for Jrue's assignments.
Conley has failed to give more than 3 assists in 2019 (!) though he averages 6.1a per game this season. He will definitely do a lot better today and can't see him finishing this game with less than 8.
