Advice and prediction
The Pelicans continued their inconsistent season with a no-show to open the second half of the regular season in a blowout loss to Minnesota. There’s hardly any reason to consider them a seven-point favorite against virtually any team right now.
Cleveland is only opening its second half of the season but New Orleans’ defense can’t stop a nose bleed. Take Cavs plus-7.
Prediction: Cavaliers 111, Pelicans 103
