Denver @ New Orleans

Current Records: Denver 14-8; New Orleans 14-8

What to Know

The New Orleans Pelicans will square off against the Denver Nuggets at 3:30 p.m. ET Sunday at Smoothie King Center. If the game is anything like Denver's 138-130 win from their previous meeting in March, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

While not quite a landslide, the contest between the Pelicans and the San Antonio Spurs this past Friday was still a pretty decisive one as New Orleans wrapped it up with a 117-99 victory on the road. Power forward Zion Williamson continued his habit of dropping crazy stat lines, almost dropping a triple-double on 30 points, 15 rebounds, and eight assists.

Meanwhile, Denver came up short against the Atlanta Hawks this past Friday, falling 117-109. The losing side was boosted by center Nikola Jokic, who almost posted a triple-double on 24 points, ten boards, and eight dimes.

Barring any buzzer beaters, New Orleans is expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.

New Orleans' victory lifted them to 14-8 while Denver's loss dropped them down to 14-8. We'll see if New Orleans can repeat their recent success or if the Nuggets bounce back and reverse their fortune.
