The Pelicans have won both meetings this season by scores of 114-107 at home on Nov. 20 and 114-10 at OKC on February 2. The Thunder have lost three in a row and four of their last five as they have been unable to find a winning formula at the end of close games. While New Orleans has also lost three in a row, it still holds the eighth spot in the Western Conference playoffs and will treat this game with the utmost importance. Go with the home team here.
