New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans get here with a 7-6 record and are 3-2 at home this season ranking 3rd in the Southwest Division. In their last game at home, they beat the Rockets 119-106 . Zion Williamson scored 26 points going 8 of 9 from the field and powering inside at will against a defense that gave him more one-on-one opportunities than usual. He also went 10 of 12 from the line.

The Pelicans have been on fire and are currently on an 8 game winning streak even without one of their best player in Brandon Ingram. The Jazz have lost 3 of their last 4 games and have struggled in defense allowing 118 points per game in their last 10 games. These are two of the best offenses in the league but the Pelicans have been playing better defense lately so I think they can slow down the Jazz on this game. Take the Pelicans.
