New Orleans Pelicans vs. Sacramento Kings

The New Orleans Pelicans and the Sacramento Kings face off on Monday in a NBA Western Conference battle of teams who won’t be in the playoffs this season. The Pelicans are -3.5 point favorites over the Kings with an over/under point total set at 200. The New Orleans got a new nickname this season but it has been a lot of the same results on the court as they appear headed to the NBA Draft Lottery once again. The Pelicans are a building project and taking steps forward but they appear to be a piece or two away from becoming a contender. Anthony Davis leads New Orleans averaging 21.3 points, 10.3 rebounds, 1.38 steals, and 2.86 blocks per game but he is questionable for this one. Eric Gordon is doubtful and he is averaging 15.4 points, Tyreke Evans is averaging 14 points, and Brian Roberts is averaging 9.6 points. As Read More

Sacramento Kings vs. New Orleans Pelicans

The New Orleans Pelicans pay a visit to the Sacramento Kings tonight in a battle of the Western Conference cellar dwellers. The Kings are -3.5 point favorites over the Pelicans with an over/under point total set at 204.5. While the All-Star break has helped some teams kick off their playoff run, the Pelicans have yet to win a game since the break, losing seven straight including a 108-76 blowout against the Clippers on Saturday. Tyreke Evans had a decent game of 22 points while Austin Rivers added 19 off the bench, but with Anthony Davis playing just 20 minutes because of foul trouble, the Pelicans fell behind big early and never looked dangerous. New Orleans did play the previous night so maybe fatigue played its role in the loss, but the fact is that their only road win in their last nine outings came against the Bucks. Meanwhile, the Kings Read More

The Pelicans have lost three of their last four and are coming off a 98-91 loss against the Knicks despite 28 points from Eric Gordon. Anthony Davis and Austin Rivers added 14 points apiece, but with all the injuries the Pelicans have been dealing with lately, they just didn’t have the firepower to stay with the Knicks who were led by 42 points from Carmelo Anthony. Also, it didn’t help that the Pelicans’ leading scorer from last night played less than four minutes in the fourth quarter and Davis, the Pelicans’ best scoring option took just 10 shot attempts compared to the Knicks’ Anthony who took 29.
