New Orleans Pelicans vs Los Angeles Lakers : The Pelicans are doing really well on
this edition of the NBA, and this is a team that has great individual players.
Such as Anthony Davis, Cousins, Rondo and Holiday, and that now counts with the recently-signed Mirotic.
However, the loss of DeMarcus Cousins to an injury problem recently ends up weakening the team and putting a lot more responsibility on the shoulders of the superstar Anthony Davis.
When he is on court, the team is stronger, but when they need to use the bench, the team’s firepower drops a bit.
So far, the Pelicans have a 42-30 record, occupying the 5th place of the Western Conference.
The Lakers hadn’t been doing good campaigns in the NBA. However, on the last few rounds, they have been playing very pleasant basketball and have been getting great wins, especially at home.
This is a team that didn’t make a lot of investments going into this NBA season, and they have a team mostly formed by young athletes, such as Lonzo Ball, Ingram, Kuzma and Randle, with all of them playing at a great level. Besides that, they’ve also signed Isaiah Thomas to strengthen their squad.
The Lakers now present a 31-39 record, and they are currently in 11th place on the Western Conference.
New Orleans Pelicans vs Los Angeles Lakers – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Los Angeles Lakers have a very qualified and promising team, as we could see on some periods of the season and therefore I believe that they can create the Pelicans a lot of trouble.
However, on this final stretch of the season, they only have a remote chance of reaching the play-offs.
The Pelicans, on the other hand, have been playing well and showing improvements after every game, so with the team basically in full strength and playing at home.
I believe the Pelicans, that are still on a fierce fight for the play-off spots, will take the win.
