NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The New Orleans Pelicans welcome the LA Clippers in to the newly-named Smoothie King Arena Monday night for what promises to be a dazzling display of athletic talent in the paint courtesy of Pelicans forward Anthony Davis and Clippers center DeAndre Jordan.
This game will present several tantalizing storylines: Pelicans' guard Austin Rivers facing his dad - Clippers coach Doc Rivers, and Chris Paul returning to the city he loves after leading the Hornets for six years.
Once the game tips though, there will be no shortage of action close to the basket, given the accolades Davis and Jordan have accumulated.
Davis and Jordan are two of the only three players in the NBA this season to record a game with at least 18 rebounds and 6 blocks.
