  • The Under hit in the 2 previous meetings this season
  • The Under has cashed in 5 of LA's last 7 games

  • LA Clippers won 111-95 when the two teams last met on January 5

New Orleans Pelicans Form

New Orleans head to Los Angeles on the back of a three-game winning run that has got them back on track.

The Pelicans struggled for consistency during the second half of January and late in the month lost three straight games.

They were beaten 107-83 at home by Oklahoma City, before heading out on the road to lose 141-117 in Milwaukee and 118-112 in Boston.

New Orleans stopped the rot on the road though, beating Houston 110-99 before downing the Spurs in San Antonio, 114-113.

The Pelicans then made it three-in-a-row when they briefly returned home to blow out Toronto 138-100.

LA Clippers Form

LA enter this matchup in fantastic form, having won each of their last eight games and 17 of the last 20.

The Clippers enjoyed a four-game win streak over the course of late December and early January, and then responded from a loss by winning three of the next four.

They responded to a 109-105 defeat in Minnesota that saw them win at home against Oklahoma City, 128-117, Brooklyn 125-114, and the Los Angeles Lakers, 127-116.

LA then went out on the road to beat Toronto 127-107 and Boston 115-96, before seeing their streak end with a 118-108 defeat in Cleveland.

The Clippers immediately responded though, winning 125-109 in Washington, 136-125 at Detroit, 103-95 in Miami and 149-144 at Atlanta.

Verdict

The Clippers are one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now and are tipped to keep their good run going with another win and cover.
