Advice and prediction
The task for the Pelicans got much more difficult with the return of Kristaps Porzingis, as reported by The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
Despite New Orleans’ three-game losing streak, each of the games has been close with the Pelicans holding fourth-quarter leads. The flip side is that the Mavs swept the season series last year. The Mavs, and Luka Doncic specifically, have struggled this season.
It makes it hard to bet but given the Pelicans’ current form, it’s hard to pick them. For that, take Dallas -3.5.
Prediction: Mavericks 107, Pelicans 101
