Pelicans fall to Lakers

New Orleans lost 114-110 at home Wednesday night versus Los Angeles to drop to 6-12 overall and 4-5 at home. Jrue Holiday led the Pelicans with 29 points on 12-of-23 shooting including 4-of-6 from 3-point distance plus 1-of-1 at the free throw line. He also racked up 12 assists, six rebounds and three steals. Brandon Ingram accounted for 23 points, 10 boards and two blocked shots. J.J. Redick tallied 18 points, four caroms and two assists. Kenrich Williams added 11 points and seven rebounds. New Orleans was outscored 35-21 in the fourth quarter of the defeat.

Thunder throttled by Trail Blazers

Oklahoma City lost 136-119 Wednesday night at Portland to drop to 6-11 overall and 1-7 on the road. The Thunder trailed 104-77 through three quarters in the lopsided loss. Abdel Nader paced OKC with 23 points off the bench on 7-of-9 shooting including 3-of-4 from 3-point distance plus 6-of-6 at the free throw line. He also brought down two rebounds. Chris Paul tallied 16 points, five assists and two boards. Danilo Gallinari had 14 points, four caroms and two assists. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander accounted for 11 points, five dimes and two rebounds.

NBA Betting Trends

New Orleans

The Pelicans are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games versus the Western Conference. New Orleans is 8-23 ATS in its last 31 Friday games.

Oklahoma City

The Thunder are 4-1 ATS in their last five Friday games. Oklahoma City is 5-1 ATS in its last six home games.


New Orleans will likely be without Lonzo Ball again tonight as he battles an illness. New Orleans put a lot of heart and emotion into its last game versus LA only to fall short with a poor fourth quarter. This could be a letdown spot on the road two nights later. Considering OKC has been tough at home for the most part, I'm going to go with the hosts here.
