What to Know

The Pelicans have been on the road for four straight, but on Tuesday they’ll finally head home. They will take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at 8:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday. The Pelicans have been getting the ball to fall more lately as they’ve increased their point totals each of their last three games.

Last Sunday, New Orleans was able to grind out a solid win over the Pistons, taking the game 114-101.

Zion Williamson was nothing short of spectacular: he scored 36 points along with seven rebounds and six assists. He didn’t help the Pelicans’ cause all that much against the Heat on Friday but the same can’t be said for this contest. Less helpful for the Pelicans was Trey Murphy III’s abysmal 0-9 three-point shooting.

Meanwhile, after a string of four wins, the Thunder’s good fortune finally ran out on Sunday. Their painful 118-93 defeat to Milwaukee might stick with them for a while. The result shouldn’t come as a shock considering that’s the fewest points the Thunder have scored all season.

The Thunder’s loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of Josh Giddey, who shot 4-for-6 from downtown and almost dropped a double-double on 19 points and nine rebounds, and Jalen Williams who scored 18 points.

Perhaps unsurprisingly given the score, the Thunder struggled to work together and finished the game with only 20 assists. They were crushed by their opponents in that department as the Bucks posted 33 assists.

New Orleans is on a roll lately: they’ve won five of their last six games, which provided a massive bump to their 44-27 record this season. As for Oklahoma City, their defeat ended a three-game streak of away wins and brought them to 49-21.

Some high-performance offense is likely on the agenda as both teams are some of the highest scoring teams in the league. The Pelicans haven’t had any problem running up the score this season, having averaged 115.7 points per game. However, it’s not like the Thunder (currently ranked fourth in scoring) struggle in that department as they’ve been averaging 120.3 points per game. With both teams so easily able to put up points, the only question left is who can run the score up higher.

The Pelicans are hoping to beat the odds on Tuesday, as the experts think they’re headed for a loss. Be careful betting them against the spread as while they’re 40-29-1 ATS overall, they’re only 3-7 against Oklahoma City in their most recent matchups.


Oklahoma City is a slight 1-point favorite against New Orleans, according to the latest NBA odds.

The oddsmakers were right in line with the betting community on this one, as the game opened as a 1-point spread, and stayed right there.

The over/under is 222.5 points.
