The NBA brings more action today as the San Antonio Spurs will play against the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Spurs are heading into this game after a hard fought 122-120 win against Philadephia away.
On the other side, the Pelicans lost in the game against Oklahoma with a score of 122-116.
San Antonio Spurs Form
The Spurs are heading into this game after two defeats in a row in their last two games. Also, they have 4 losses in their last 6 games.
Yet, DeMar DeRozan had a good game against the 76ers as he scored 26 points in the win.
Moreover, they are now on the 6th spot in the Western Conference as they are 7 games behind the Warriors for the top spot.
On the offensive side of the game, the Spurs score an average of 116.6 points per game. Therefore this record is enough for the 17th spot in the league in scoring.
Also, they have an average record of 44.2 boards per game combined with 24.7 assists per night.
On the defensive side per game, San Antonio is allowing an average of 109.5 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 13th spot in the league in scoring defence.
New Orleans Pelicans Form
The Pelicans are heading into this game after a defeat in their last game which was against Oklahoma. Moreover, they now have two defeats in a row and 4 losses in their last 6 games.
Also, their position is not good at the moment as they are on the 12th spot in the Western Conference with 4.5 games behind the Clippers for the last playoff spot.
On the offensive side of the game, the Pelicans score an average of 116.7 points per contest. Therefore, this record is enough for the high 3rd spot in the league in scoring. Moreover, they have an average of 46.8 boards per game combined with 26.8 dimes per night.
On the defensive side of the game, the Pelicans concede an average of 114.9 points per game. Therefore, this record is good enough only for the 25th spot in the league in scoring defence.
The Spurs are not in a great form at the moment as they have 4 defeats in their last 6 games. They have been struggling lately and it will be interesting to see how they will fare in this game. On the other side, the Pelicans are also in a poor form. Additionally, they will miss the injured Davis. That will be a big blow for them as he is one of their main players in the team. That is why I think that the Spurs will have the edge in this one. Take San Antonio to win this game in a tight contest.
