The NBA is back in action today as the New Orleans Pelicans will clash with the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Pelicans are heading into this game after a defeat on Saturday night against the Jazz with a score of 128-120.
And on the other side, the Clippers earned a 122-119 win at home over the Rockets in their last contest Friday night.
New Orleans Pelicans Form
The Pelicans enjoyed a solid form recently. Moreover, they had a run of three wins in a row. However, that came to an end after a defeat in the game against Utah. And now the Pelicans are 3rd with 4.5 games behind the Rockets for the top spot. Also, the defeat in Salt Lake City is not a coincidence. Furthermore, New Orleans has struggled on the road this season as they have conceded an average of 120.9 points per contest as the visiting team.
On the offensive side of the game, the Pelicans score an average of 116.2 points per game which is enough for the 5th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have 45.8 boards a night combined with 26.2 dimes a night. Additionally, the Pelicans are 29th in the league in scoring defence as they concede an average of 119 points per game so far this year.
Los Angeles Clippers Form
The Clippers will be heading into this game in a good form. Moreover, they have now won 4 games in a row. However, the Clippers still need to work as they are 2nd in the Pacific Division with 2.5 games behind their local rivals, the Lakers.
Also, this team had a great game against the Rockets. And their talisman, Williams led the team with 26 points and 8 assists in the win.
On the offensive side of the game, the Clippers score an average of 113 points per game which is enough for the 10th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they are 48.4 boards per game combined with assists with 22.9 per contest. The Clippers are 10th in scoring defence by allowing 107.2 points per game.
The Pelicans are a good team and their offensive firepower is really good. Moreover, they were on a good run before the defeat in Salt Lake City. Also, the Clippers are in good form as they have 4 wins in a row. Additionally, their home form is really good. On the opposite side, the Pelicans have a bad away record this season. Therefore, I expect another win for the Clippers.
