Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
New Orleans Pelicans vs Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers will welcome the Pelicans to Staples Center as they are coming off a tough loss against the Pistons while the Pelicans loss to the Wolves. Game tips off at 10:30 PM ET.
New Orleans Pelicans's Latest Performance :
The Pelicans are coming off a loss against the Wolves, they have been terrible on the road this season going 5-17. Anthony Davis led the way scoring 30 points with 14 rebounds. He doing all he can to get the Pelicans back in the playoffs hunt but with the way, his teammates are playing it will be a very tough job to do. Nikola Mirotic saw 27 minutes as he managed to score only 9 points on the night. E’Twaun Moore struggled in his return to the lineup on Saturday, scoring two points shooting 1-of-6 from the floor. Randle finished the game with 22 points and 11 boards while Jrue Holiday had 25 points, seven assists, six rebounds. Playing against the Clippers I expect Davis to go off once again but the can’t do it alone as he needs his teammates to step it up as well.
Los Angeles Clippers's Latest Performance :
The Clippers will be looking to bounce back after they allowed former player Blake Griffin to drop 44 points on them. Danilo Gallinari led the Clippers with 23 points, while Lou Williams scored 22 and Montrezl Harrell 21, both coming off the bench. Tobias Harris struggled offensively against his former team scoring 11 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, one block, two steals. This was a statement game coming in for Blake as Harris should have done better against his former team this was a great opportunity for Harris as well to show what are the Pistons missing but he failed to do so. He will look to have a better game against the Pelicans and do his best to snap this two-game losing streak. Gortat will look to bounce back after being dominated by Drummond in the paint he faces a tough challenge in his next game as he and Harrell will have to be at their best to contain Davis. They are 14-7 when playing at home this season.

Against The Spread Selection: Los Angeles Clippers
My reason for the pick :
The Clippers will be able to bounce back and snap their two-game losing streak against the Pelicans as New Orleans continues to struggle on the road this season. The only difference between the Clippers and the Pelicans is that the Clippers have multiple scorers on the team who are capable of getting double figures on a nightly basis while the Pelicans only rely on one player in Davis to get the job done playing this way can get wins against weaker teams but not against the Clippers at home.
