Point Spread, SAC Kings @ NO Pelicans

Reasoning

The Kings are off a loss to Utah. They played with the West Leaders for a half but then faded. They keep tinkering with their lineup and now rookie Tyrese Haliburton is coming off the bench again. He scored 13 as the sixth man but the rest of the bench combined for three points. This team is definitely not strong enough to try and win with just six guys contributing.  I am not sure about the fascination with Mo Harkless and why they want to start him. 

The Pelicans won at Cleveland last night. Beating the Cavaliers is not “impressive” but the Pelicans got down early and then fought their way back to a win. They only allowed 15 points in the fourth quarter, taking advantage of a Cavs team that likely ran out of gas on a back-to-back. Zion Williamson had another monster game with 38 points and nine rebounds. Brandon Ingram was back and chipped in 27 with eight assists. The two of them together are very interesting when they are playing at a high level.

The win last night was a nice effort but New Orleans’ problem all season has been consistency. In situations like this, back-to-backs have not been kind with the Pelicans with just three wins in 10 tries. Sacramento is not an elite team by any stretch but they are not a team you want to face in this spot as they love to play with tempo. They are not a great road team at 13-13 ATS but with De’Aaron Fox they can really put a lot of pressure on you. The Kings might not win the game but they will put up some points. Take Sacramento.
