New Orleans Pelicans Form

New Orleans go into this matchup in excellent form, having won six of their last seven games to reach 23-15.

The Nuggets dropped a couple of games over Christmas, but were able to end 2023 with back-to-back victories.

They beat Utah 112-105 and the Los Angeles Lakers 129-109, before starting 2024 with a 112-85 blowout of Brooklyn.

New Orleans then downed Minnesota 117-106 on the road, only to see their win streak end with a 111-95 home defeat to the LA Clippers.

The Pelicans rebounded when they went back out on the road though, following up a 133-100 win in Sacramento with a 141-105 victory at Golden State.

Denver Nuggets Form

Denver return home looking to start a good run after going 3-3 over their last six games to sit at 26-13.

The Nuggets went on a six-game win streak in late December, only to lose 119-93 to Oklahoma City in their final game of 2023.

They rebounded immediately with a 111-93 victory over Charlotte, and backed that up with a 130-127 win at Golden State.

Denver failed to make it three wins in a row though, and they have now lost two of their last three outings.

The Nuggets have sandwiched a 131-114 win over Detroit with a 122-120 defeat to Orlando and a 124-111 loss in Utah.

Verdict

New Orleans arrive in great form and have been covering consistently, both overall and on the road, so give us the Pelicans and the points.
