New Orleans Pelicans vs LA Clippers Preview

After winning their respective games last time, the title-contending Clippers (25-14) face a tricky road test in New Orleans. The Pels are six games below .500, though, despite a sluggish start and inconsistent tendencies under new head coach Stan Van Gundy, they possess the true potential to crack into the Western Conference playoffs. 

They need to string together a formidable run, though, and time is of the essence as the second half of the season is already underway - the All-Star break flew by. They face Ty Lue's team, who boast perennial All-Stars in Kawhi Leonard and Paul George and will hope for an easier outing than their 111-106 win on January 13. 

Nickeil Alexander-Walker recorded a career-high 37 points that night, with Lonzo Ball and their leading scorer Zion Williamson both sidelined. How will this one go?

New Orleans Pelicans vs LA Clippers Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI gives the Clippers a slight edge (56.3%) ahead of this clash, unsurprising as they are stronger on paper - though they have often struggled against means they're expected to ease past in recent months. 

For example, they lost three successive road games before the All-Star break - all by five-point margins or less. 

If the hosts can shoot efficiently while limiting turnovers, there's no reason why they shouldn't keep this competitive and ultimately earn another morale-boosting win. Zion (25.5 PPG, 61.4 FG%) and Brandon Ingram are naturally key, though their inconsistent Ball-Bledsoe backcourt must step up too.
