Atlanta and New Orleans can still believe it



The Atlanta Hawks and the New Orleans Pelicans, winners of the Charlotte Hornets (132-103) and the San Antonio Spurs (113-103), still have a chance to play in the play-offs, against the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Atlanta did not elaborate. For their first NBA play-in game, on the night of Wednesday to Thursday, the Hawks clearly beat the Charlotte Hornets (132-103). The locals relied in particular on Trae Young, his franchise’s top scorer but also second best scorer in this meeting, with a double-double in the key and personal statistics of 24 points, 3 rebounds, 11 assists. Like last year, the Hornets stop in play-in. For its part, Atlanta therefore still has a chance to play in the play-offs in the Eastern Conference. For that, the Hawks will have to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers.

New Orleans stays alive. On the night of Wednesday to Thursday, as part of their first NBA play-in game, the Pelicans dismissed the San Antonio Spurs (113-103), in front of an audience that did not let them go. All under the leadership of a duo made up of Brandon Ingram and CJ McCollum. The two men scored a total of 59 points. Apart from the very start of the first quarter, where they led, the visitors never ceased to suffer in this meeting. To join the play-offs, New Orleans will have to get rid of the Los Angeles Clippers.
