Hawks vs. Pelicans Prediction:
Each team comes in tonight with a two game win streak. Early season games can be bad indicators for long term trends. But in the immediate, expect a team’s playing form to matter and carry over. Game will be close tonight because neither team has an identity yet.Zion Williamson should return tonight after sitting for rest against the Pistons Thursday night. I anticipate the New Orleans front court attacks will beat down the Hawks.
NBA Betting Prediction: (New Orleans -3; -110)
