Monday, January 11th finds the New Orleans Pelicans playing the Dallas Mavericks. Heading into the game Dallas is reveling from an overtime victory over the Nuggets while the Pelicans lost to the Hornets and are on a three-game losing streak.
The Mavericks hold the all-time record between the clubs with 45 wins in 67 meetings. Last season, the teams played four times with Dallas sweeping the regular-season series.
New Orleans Pelicans
After a solid start to the season and a seeming buy-in to new head coach Stan Van Gundy’s insistence on defense, the New Orleans Pelicans looked like a team on the rise.

However, proving the point that consistency is what matters most and maybe the hardest lesson to learn, the Pels have lost three games in a row to the Pacers in overtime, the Thunder, and the Hornets.
The latter two games came against teams deemed to be lottery squads but they each looked like the rising young squads in their wins.
In the loss to the Hornets, the Pelicans struggled to stop Charlotte from scoring and kept coughing up the ball. In total 19 turnovers were given up by New Orleans which resulted in 27 points for the Hornets.
Something I’ve noticed about Pelicans losses is when Zion Williamson scores more than Brandon Ingram it doesn’t equate to wins. That occurred again versus the Hornets as Williamson led the scoring with 26 points. Ingram offered 17 points, as well as eight each of rebounds and assists.
Josh Hart (19), JJ Redick (17), and Steven Adams (13) also reached double-figures.
Will Magnay is the only Pelicans player on the injured reserve list out for personal reasons with no timeline for return.
Like many teams in the NBA the Dallas Mavericks have been hit by COVID-19 and while it hadn’t affected them prior they’ll likely be playing without core contributors this week as the news came following their last game in Orlando.
Regardless, the Mavericks are winning depite dealing with copious injuries this season. Mind you having a player of Luka Doncic’s ilk certainly helps the cause.
They followed up an exciting overtime victory in Denver with an absolute rout of the Magic climbing above .500 with a view to extending their three-game win streak. .
The players who got the news they had to quarantine will be missed as they posted solid showings. Tim Hardaway Jr. registered a season-high 36 points while Trey Burke also scored a season-high 29 points punctuated by seven 3-pointers as he missed only one attempt.
Luka Doncic delivered yet another triple-double with 20 points, 10 assists, and 11 rebounds plus threw in a steal and two blocks for good measure. James Johnson chipped in 12 points as the other double-figure contributor.
As noted, core players are out including Jalen Brunson, Josh Richardson, and Dorian Finney-Smith with no timetable for return.
Kristaps Porzingis should be back soon as his projected return is mid-January.
NBA Betting Trends:
- NO are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall.
- NO are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games.
- Over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
Although the Mavericks will be missing core contributors as long as Luka is in the game they have the better chance of winning.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Mavericks ATS
With Van Gundy raving about defense look for the Pelicans to come out aggressive, but I still think Luka and the Mavs take the game.
