New Orleans Pelicans vs Philadelphia 76ers Prediction comes ahead of their NBA regular season clash on Saturday, April 10th 2021, at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. Read my match preview for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Philadelphia 76ers Preview

Kevin Durant returned from a 23-game absence to finish with a perfect box score: 17 points (5-of-5) with seven rebounds and five assists in 19 minutes, as the Brooklyn Nets blasted past the Pelicans on Wednesday night. 

They shot 78% in the second quarter alone (14-of-18) and the Pelicans, who were without Brandon Ingram (foot) and others, had no answers for their hosts' scoring efficiency. Nets head coach Steve Nash said bringing Durant off the bench was to easily control his minutes if the game was close down the stretch. 

It certainly wasn't. Opposite number Stan Van Gundy said his team were dominated on both ends of the floor, failing to get out to the three-point line and describing it as "absurd", against many critics' consensus pick to go all the way an NBA championship this season. 

LaMarcus Aldridge had 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting, Blake Griffin added 10, and Chris Chiozza produced 12 with eight assists in 18 minutes off the bench as the Pelicans - even with just 22.2% shooting from deep - struggled during a game that got ugly rather quickly.

It doesn't get much easier for the Pels either, hosting a 76ers side with All-Star duo Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons both available to play. They were 106-96 winners against Boston in midweek, with Embiid's 35-point performance rightly stealing the show. How will they defend him here? 

New Orleans Pelicans vs Philadelphia 76ers Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI is backing the 76ers to prevail here (67.2% win probability) and understandably so, considering the Pelicans' very busy injury report and a vulnerable defence that has conceded 115.1 points per game this term.
