Sacramento Kings vs New Orleans Pelicans – NBA: The Kings, despite the record not showing that, have been a very competent team this year
On the road: 10-21
They have a lot of close losses because they are missing some pieces but Randolph, Carter and the rookie Fox have been doing very well over the course of the season, but after the trade deadline, the team has given up, which is normal.
They’ve made some trades thinking about the future and not the present and since then, the team has been plummeting, performing very poorly.
However, since their objective is developing the youngsters, their future might look brighter.
New Orleans Pelicans
On the road: 20-14
The New Orleans Pelicans are making a good campaign. It could be better, but there are still some big flaws on this team.
Their starting 5 is very good, with Cousins, Davis, Rondo and Holiday. The bench that was terrible got very good with the arrival of Mirotic. It’s incredible how a single player gave this team what they needed out of the bench.
DeMarcus Cousins got seriously injured and will mess the rest of the season but curiously the Pelicans have actually been doing well without him, getting a lot of surprising and important victories.
Sacramento Kings vs New Orleans Pelicans – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I never imagined seeing this team playing so well without Cousins, getting 9 consecutive wins.
AD is making an incredible season, with ridiculous numbers, and they are on the heated fight for the play-off spots in the West.
Tonight, they have an easy game, in theory, and the way they’re playing, they shouldn’t have any problems getting their 10th consecutive win against the Kings here, even on the road.
