New Orleans Pelicans will be meeting Phoenix Suns on Thursday in New Orleans, This will be the Sixth game in the first round in this matchup as phoenix Suns are leading 3-2 after 5 games so far. Phoenix Suns have won game 5 at home 112-97 as Mikael Bridges went off for 31 points and a double double from Chris Paul.

Phoenix Suns are missing Devin Booker and it's affecting them so far in this series but they still got the win at home and can end the series tonight with a win in New Orleans. Mikael Bridges had a great game scoring 31 points on 71% shooting from the field and 100% shooting from the 3 Pointers! Chris Paul also got a double double of 22 points and 11 Assists and only 1 turnover in this game. Booker and Saric are still out for this game for the Suns.

New Orleans Pelicans had a really bad shooting day in that last game especially from the Three and now they are in a must win situation to stay in this series and force a game 7. New Orleans shot 40% from the field and only 20% from the 3 pointers in that game. Ingram had a bad shooting day even though he was the Pelicans' best scorer with 22 points on only 37% shooting from the field and 20% from the 3 Pointers.

Head to Head

Phoenix Suns have beaten the Pelicans 7 times out of last 10 games with 7-3 ATS record too. The O/U record 6-4 to the Over as Phoenix Suns are averaging 115.3 and New Orleans Pelicans are averaging 110.6 points a game. The Suns have won the last game at home 112-97 which puts the series as a 3-2 Suns lead going to this game and a potentially last game in this series.


Phoenix Suns took the lead in game 5 playing at home and now they are 3-2 in this series so the Pelicans are in a must win situation at home and I like them to tie the series 3-3 with a win and having a game 7. Phoenix Suns have been very shaky without Devin Booker even though they have won the last game but this is a different environment as Pelicans are at home and they need to win this game so give me the Pelicans plus the points.

Pick: New Orleans Pelicans +2 (-110)
