INJURY TO WATCH

New Orleans shooting guard Ian Clark (ankle) is out indefinitely. Center Alexis Ajinca (knee), center DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) and point guard Frank Jackson (foot) are out for the season. For the Suns, small forwardJared Dudley (ankle) is questionable to play tonight. shooting guard Troy Daniels (ankle) is doubtful. Power forward Alan Williams (knee) has been ruled out. Point guard Elfrid Payton (knee), shooting guard Devin Booker (hand), small forward TJ Warren (knee) and center Tyson Chandler (neck) are all out indefinitely. Point guard Brandon Knight (knee) is out for the season.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Pelicans are now positioned seventh in the Western Conference playoff race as they fight with several teams to avoid being left out of the picture entirely. The schedule is kind to New Orleans tonight as they face the NBA-worst Suns, who are without a number of key players. Both teams are poor defensively and even though New Orleans has been playing lower-scoring games than usual lately, this one is the right formula for a shootout. It also helps us as this total is lower than it would be a few weeks ago. Go with the over here.
