The Pelicans have come along nicely over the last several weeks but they have lost 7 of their last 8 games on the road and that's a big reason to pause. They've pulled in 5 of their last 8 games but just lost to the Timberwolves by 4 points. While the Pelicans are trying to pull themselves up and get in the right direction the Clippers are hard to trust at this point. They have been hit and miss for the last month or so and have lost the last 2 games. I expect this to be a close one, much like the other two they've already played this season. I'm hoping that tonight is one of the times where the Clippers are playing well. I'm going with the Clippers to cover. I may also throw a little at the overs.
My Pick: Los Angeles -2

I think Clippers are just the better team on paper and on the court. I'm going with Clippers ML.

New Orleans is a bad road team this year and here they are on the road. They have been playing better as of late tho. I like the pelicans to cover but I am not as confident in this game as in others
My Pick: New Orleans +2.5

The Bird Writes: Game 44: Pelicans look to improve awful road record, seize tie-breaker from Clippers
The New Orleans Pelicans face off with the Los Angeles Clippers for the final time in the 2018/19 in what could have tie-breaking ramifications should the two lock horns in the Western Conference playoff standings later this season.
Expect points in this one, and lots of them. The two teams combined for 215 and 255 points in their previous contests this season, and the Clippers have struggled of late defensively leading to 11 losses in their previous 19 tries.
Good news for the Pelicans, they have no injuries to report, and Nikola Mirotic will play tonight without restriction!

Los Angeles Clippers (62% consensus). The Los Angeles Clippers could not match the force of Blake Griffin and the Detroit Pistons in his return on Saturday, leading to a 109-104 setback in the opener of a four-game homestand. The Clippers will try to bounce back and avoid a third consecutive loss when they host the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday... http://bit.ly/2B3IeGU
The Bird Writes: NBA Preview: New Orleans Pelicans running out of time, hope to find answers against Los Angeles Clippers
The home town team came up big in the clutch again. After taking a punch to the mouth early, the squad that has shown resilience time after time during the regular season once again found a way to overcome adversity in the minutes that mattered most.
I'm talking, of course, about the New Orleans Saints!
The New Orleans Pelicans have entirely been another story. With top-end talent and and a momentous finish to the 2017/18 season built largely upon late-game heroics, this current version of the Pelicans continues to come up short.
On Saturday night, for instance, the Pelicans had finally returned to health and thought to reverse the fortunes of what has been a disappointing campaign.
