This season, the Pelicans lost three of four games to the Spurs. The most recent meeting between the two teams wasn’t too long ago, on March 26, when the Spurs won 107-103. That game, Brandon Ingram wasn’t able to go for New Orleans. That should make a big difference in the one-game playoff. The only player in danger of sitting out for San Antonio is Lonnie Walker. Ingram, Herbert Jones and Jonas Valanciunas are all dealing with injuries for the Pels, but should end up playing on Wednesday night.
