New Orleans Pelicans Form

New Orleans come into this matchup on the back of a third defeat in five games that has dropped them to 11-10.

The Pelicans’ dip in form started after a 116-106 win at the LA Clippers that gave them a 3-1 tournament record and booked their place in the quarter-finals.

They then travelled to Utah and suffered back-to-back defeats at the hands of the Jazz, losing 105-100 and 114-112.

New Orleans bounced back when they returned home, following up a 124-114 victory over Philadelphia with a 121-106 win against San Antonio.

The Pelicans failed to make it three-in-a-row though, as they went back out on the road and lost 124-118 in Chicago.

Sacramento Kings Form

Sacramento enter the quarter-finals of the NBA In-Season Tournament having won three of their last four games to improve to 11-7.

The Kings enjoyed a six-game win streak last month, only to see it come to an end in New Orleans as they lost back-to-back meetings with the Pelicans, 129-93 and 117-112.

They bounced back in the NBA In-Season Tournament though, winning back-to-back games to secure a quarter-final spot with a 4-0 record.

Sacramento won 124-111 in Minnesota, before returning home to down Golden State 124-123.

The Kings failed to make it three-in-a-row as they lost 131-117 to the LA Clippers, but they did bounce back quickly to knock off defending champions Denver, 123-117.

Verdict

New Orleans are 2-0 against Sacramento this season, but both of those meetings were at home.

This game is on the road and the Pelicans have been terrible travellers, so we like a Kings team who do their best work at home and just beat the champs.
