Nerlens Noel answered media questions ahead of this weekend’s NBA Saturdays clash between the New Orleans Pelicans and Oklahoma City Thunder.

On what to expect against New Orleans

“We just have to play the same way. We’re good. We’re heading in the right direction. Guys are playing good basketball. I think the threes are going to fall next game. It will be a different type of game.”

On seeing Team Development

“The leadership that we have from Chris Paul and Danilo Gallinari really showed as we continue to go down this stretch. We are staying in it, keeping our minds in it knowing that we’re playing good basketball and we just have to continue to stick with it. Guys are going to get better and better throughout the season. Understand the chemistry, understand how certain guys play. So, I’m looking forward to it.”
