(NBA) New Orleans vs. LA Clippers, 01/13/2021 10:00 PM, Score: 106 - 111
Point Spread: 6.50 | -110.00 New Orleans (Away)
Result: Win
The set-up: New Orleans is 4-5, most recently coming off a 118-110 home loss to Charlotte. The Pelicans had an 18-point second-quarter lead in that contest as well, but 19 turnovers and sloppy play in the second half led to the meltdown.

The pick: Perhaps no team is under the microscope more than the LA Clippers. LA needed both Paul George and Kawhi Leonard to excel in their latest 130-127 win over the Bulls on their home floor. Chicago had just a few starters going in that one, so the fact that the Clippers struggled with such a weak team is obviously a concern. And now LA faces a Pelicans side that's desperate to break a three-game slide. I think LA is going to have its hands full again here. Consider New Orleans and the points in this one.
