New Orleans Pelicans
Anthony Davis was the star of Sunday’s games when he went for 48 points in a comeback win in overtime over the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. He became the first player since Michael Jordan to put up 40 in back-to-back games at the Garden. He is still just 24 years old.
Davis played huge minutes in that game and New Orleans has a busy schedule with a game in Boston on Tuesday night before going to Atlanta for this one on the second night of the back-to-back.
That means there might have to be some compromise. Davis won’t play big minutes in both of these games. He may not play big minutes of either of these games, but it’s worth keeping an eye on how long he plays in Boston.
The Clippers have surged a bit, but the Nuggets and Trail Blazers have fell recently so New Orleans is all the way up the sixth seed in the West. If the season was over today, it would set up an interesting first round matchup with Minnesota between two young teams without a lot of playoff experience. The Pelicans just keep swimming.
Atlanta pulled out a win against the Spurs on Monday night as 7.5-point underdogs at home and while the Pelicans deal with Boston, Atlanta rests on Tuesday.
Dennis Schroder continued his fine season with 26 points, five rebounds and seven assists in the win. A lot of his passing attention went to Eryan Ilyasova, who dropped 20 to back up his point guard.
With the win, Atlanta moved into a tie for last place in the Eastern Conference with Orlando, who is in action on Tuesday. It’s more than likely that the Hawks will tip this game off as just the second-worst team in the conference after a long time in that dubious position. And Atlanta has started to look a little formidable at home. The Hawks will really struggle containing New Orleans inside, though.

Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction: both sides score a lot, Atlanta outside, New Orleans in, and it goes over.
Atlanta has shown it can score at home and it should most definitely do that against the Pelicans defense that will be fatigued. But the Hawks have no answer for the two bigs of New Orleans. I like this one to go high.
