The New Orleans Pelicans showed that they are not willing to quit on the season last time out, as they managed a very impressive win over the 76ers and they will look to make it two wins on the trot, as they take on the Cleveland Cavaliers this Sunday at Quicken Loans Arena.
New Orleans Pelicans
From an overall perspective the Pelicans have not been good as of late, but that last win over the 76ers really did show just how much talent is on this team and that they can compete with anyone on their day.
Zion Williamson was pretty ridiculous in that game against Philly with that victory being directly attributed to him as he put up 37 points, 15 boards and 8 assists with the the superstar level player finally picking up big time peripheral stats.
The Cleveland Cavaliers do not exactly have an outstanding interior defense, so I would look for Zion to continue his meteoric rise with yet another big game here on Sunday.
The Cleveland Cavaliers were struggling over the last two weeks, but have recently picked up back to back victories which do not mean anything in terms of the playoff race, but should give these guys more belief and motivation to go out their and compete.
Their last game was against the OKC Thunder who may be the worst team in basketball as it stands right now, but you can only beat what is in front of you and the Cavaliers did just that dominating OKC with a final score of 129-102.
Darius Garland scored 21 points in that contest on 8 of 15 shooting and based on the last few months of his play I think this Cavs team may just have found themselves a future star and I would once again be on the outlook here for Garland.

Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
The Pelicans were mighty impressive in their last matchup and they deserve the respect they are getting, bu 6.5 points is way too much for this team on the road against a Cleveland side who will go out their and compete.
I am also a believer in Zion Williamson long term, but we cannot count on what he did in his last game every night even though he could certainly have a decent game here.
The Cavaliers do have the young shooters to take advantage of the Pelicans mediocre defense and I do think they can keep this one close, or even win this one outright.
The only issue I have here with the Cavaliers pick is that they are dealing with injuries with Larry Nance and Jarrett Allen both being likely to miss out on this one which is going to really hurt the interior of this team.
