1. Brow and Boogie. The combination of DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis gives the Pelicans the most dominant frontcourt in the league. Robin Lopez, Nikola Mirotic and Joffrey Lauvregne will have their hands full. Cristiano Felicio may also see some run.

2. Rajon Rondo staying hot. Now entrenched as the starter, Rondo went for 25 points and 10 rebounds against the Hawks on Sunday. What will he do for an encore?

3. Keeping the streak going. The Bulls have won three straight games, all against playoff opponents. Now the "easy" stretch comes, with six games against teams with losing records. Can the Bulls keep this solid play up?

4. The playoff push continues. Yes, somehow the Bulls are now sitting No. 7 in the East, holding tiebreakers over both the Heat and Pacers. They should have no problem getting into the postseason, and picking up a road win here would be huge.

5. Don't forget about Jrue Holiday. The Pellies are more than just DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis. Jrue Holiday, and impending free agent, is putting together a career year. Expect more Michael Carter-Williams for defensive purposes.
