Brooklyn Nets vs New Orleans Pelicans: The Brooklyn Nets have been a very balanced team on this NBA season
At home: 11-18
With that, I mean they are a team that has a lot of players contributing towards the game such as Dinwiddie, Carroll, Crabtree, Harris, Okafor, Stauskas, Russell and Allen.
The team doesn’t have any big star but they have solid players that are able to compete with teams of their level and at home even against superior teams.
New Orleans Pelicans
On the road: 14-14
The New Orleans Pelicans are making a good campaign. They could be doing better but there are some weaknesses on this team.
Their starting 5 is very good with Cousins, Davis, Rondo and Holiday, but when we look at their bench, there’s nothing there. Most of their points are scored by the starting 5 since the bench isn’t being very helpful this season.
But last week, Pelicans’ season got much more complicated.
DeMarcus Cousins got seriously injured and will miss the rest of the season and the Pelicans have been doing very poorly with his absence, because without him, their bench problems become even more evident.
Brooklyn Nets vs New Orleans Pelicans – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Honestly, the season is over for the Pelicans.
They were playing well and fighting for a spot in the Play-offs but as soon as DeMarcus Cousins got injured, the team got completely lost.
They are playing terrible and look unmotivated on court and the Nets, despite not being a powerhouse, are a competent team at home and in my opinion they shouldn’t be the underdogs here, but rather favourites to win this game.
