Although the Pelicans’ late-game lineups in preseason are not necessarily reflective of what they’ll use in the regular season – Monty Williams has rested his starters in fourth quarters – Brian Roberts has made an early, compelling case to be on the floor and showing he possesses several traits that make him valuable down the stretch of close games. | Roberts Late-Game Catalyst
