Willy Hernangómez returns to his reality

Willy Hernangomez returned to the reality that presides over the New Orleans Pelicans: return of Larry Nance Jrthe first substitute in the rotation of Jonas Valančiūnas, and 0 minutes. The 28-year-old center was left on the bench after chaining four consecutive games with minutes in the loss of the Louisiana franchise against the Brooklyn Nets (102-108).

Pelicans coach Willie GreenHe seems to be clear, as he has shown on the vast majority of occasions this season, that if there are no injuries to Valanciunas or Nance Jr, Willy will not play. As much as he recorded remarkable numbers of 10 points and 5.6 rebounds in this series of matches.

Even so, it is still early to categorically affirm anything. Both because Willy himself has the ability to change the situation as he already did last year and because of the injuries, without Brandon Ingram and without a Zion Williamson who will be a minimum of three weeks off.

Kevin Durant -33 points with 9/26 shooting and 10 rebounds-, it was too much at the end for the Pelicans in a discreet night for Kyrie Irving, with 19 points after 7/22 in shooting, despite the fact that he resolved the clash with a triple that made it 106-102 with 39 seconds remaining. Ben Simmons he also did a good job for the Nets with 6 points (3/6 in TC), 6 rebounds, 10 assists and 3 steals.

CJ McCollum led New Orleans with 28 points, followed by Naji Marshall with 23. Brooklyn ascends to the second place in the East with 26-13 after the debacle of the Bucks against the Hornets, while the Pelicans remain third in the West with 24-15.
