New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans fell behind the Heat by thirty-one points in the first half on Friday night before a spirited comeback attempt had them within three, with the ball and less than thirty seconds to go.
Nikola Mirotic’s three-point try bounced out, though and the rally was for not. Miami held on to win for just the seventh time all season and the third time in eleven games.
Mirotic never really had his outside stroke working on Friday and finished with just fifteen points. Anthony Davis pour in forty-one points and Jrue Holiday had twenty.
But just three reserves scored and Julius Randle had eight of the twelve points off the bench. Depth was already a problem for New Orleans and it’s an even bigger issue after E’Twaun Moore suffered a calif injury and didn’t return.
Moore is looking doubtful for this game. The Pels are already without Elfrid Payton and Frank Jackson so Ian Clarke and Darius Miller will be forced into action, if Moore can’t give it a go.
The Hornets have four pretty good guards to run at the Pelicans with Kemba Walker, Jeremy Lamb, Tony Parker and Malik Monk.
The Walker vs. Holiday matchup will be particularly saucy, a bigger guard with some serious length (Holiday) trying to stop someone who, frankly, ought to be in the early conversation for NBA MVP honors.
Where would the Hornets be without Walkers, who is averaging over twenty-seven points, four rebounds and six assists per game? He’s shooting over thirty-seven percent from three, which was a little higher a week or two ago but isn’t bad considering the huge volume (nearly ten attempts per game).
Probably not much better than the last-place Cleveland Cavaliers in the East. Instead, Charlotte is comfortably in the playoff picture in the conference, with a .500 record and 2.5 games better than Miami, the first team out.
Charlotte did just drop a home game to Utah on Friday night and it will conclude what has so far been a 2–1 homestand with this game on Sunday.

Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction: NOLA.
The guard situation is worrisome in New Orleans but Holiday should make life tough on Walker for forty minutes on Sunday evening and then there’s Anthony Davis for the home team to worry about.
