NEW ORLEANS PELICANS
The Pelicans have won 3 of their last 5 games and are 17-21 at home with a 31-43 record ranking third in the Southwest. The Pelicans have gone 20-24 against Western Conference teams.
Jonas Valanciunas is averaging 18.1 points and 11.6 rebounds for the Pelicans. Devonte' Graham is averaging 2.6 made 3-pointers over the last 10 games for New Orleans.

INJURIES: McCollum and Valanciunas are questionable.
LA Lakers are 5-10 ATS in their last 15 games.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of LA Lakers' last 5 games.
New Orleans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of New Orleans' last 5 games at home.
The Pelicans will have Ingram back in the court but they could be shorthanded again with McCollum and Valanciunas questionable. New Orleans dominated the Lakers the last time and beat them by 28 points. The Lakers are hoping to have Lebron back in the game but he's still questionable. With both teams playing bad defense and allowing plenty of points I think the best bet is the over.
PICK: Over 230.5 (-110)
