Point Spread: 8.00 | -104.00 New Orleans (Home)
The Suns have COVID issues. They could be minus coach Monty Williams along with starters Deandre Ayton - their best big man - and underrated Jae Crowder. Two backups could be out, too. Williams, Ayton and Crowder all missed the Suns' last game, a 133-99 road win against Charlotte.
The Pelicans are prepared for this step up in class having faced the Cavaliers, Bucks and Jazz during their last three games. New Orleans is 7-3 ATS as a home 'dog.
