This Pelicans – Kings game could be called the Western Conference chase pack play-in tournament consolation game as the first two eliminated teams meet up.
New Orleans Pelicans
When the NBA elected to bring 22 teams to the Disney bubble the hope was Zion Williamson’s Pelicans would make them a viable contender to win the ninth seed given they had the easiest strength of schedule of all teams.
Instead, both Zion and the Pelicans struggled to find wins or chemistry. Through six seeding games, they’ve recorded a 2-4 record with wins versus the Grizzlies and Wizards and losses to the Jazz, Clippers, Kings, and Spurs.
In the loss to the Spurs, J.J. Redick led the scoring effort with 31 points while Zion (25), Brandon Ingram (17) and Derrick Favors (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Jrue Holiday is nursing both a knee and elbow injury, while both Williamson and Ingram have sore knees. All three are out.
Like the Pelicans the Kings also had an easy strength of seeding games schedule but failed to capitalize. The recorded an even worse record through six matches (1-5) with their lone victory coming against the Pelicans.
The five losses were against the Spurs, Magic, Mavericks (in overtime), Nets, and Rockets.
Sacramento won the opening (35-23) and closing frames (41-36) versus the Rockets. The problem was Houston outscord them 70-35 in the middle quarters
De’Aaron Fox was one assist shy of double-double (26 points/nine assists). Buddy Hield (16), Bogdan Bogdanovic (13), DaQuan Jeffries (13), Jabari Parker (12), and Harrison Barnes (11) were the other double-digit contributors.
Fox (shoulder) and Richaun Holmes (hip) are out Tuesday while Kent Bazemore (calf) is questionable.

Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
Both clubs feature a bevy of young stars with a generational talent on the Pelicans in Williamson. Brandon Ingram had a transitional ascendant year and Jrue Holiday may be the best-kept secret in the NBA as well as a remarkable human being.
Similarly, the Kings boast Fox, Marvin Bagley, Harry Giles, Hield, and Bogdanovic.
Suffice to say, both clubs feature tons of talent and one or both may be a factor in the future if they can develop and stick to an identity.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Kings +1
The question isn’t so much who wins and by how much, rather it’s will either team bother to defend?
Moreover, with so many stars out it will be intriguing to see where the points come from, although Sacramento dropped 140 points in their victory over the Pels last week.
***NOTE*** In case you missed it…When the 2020 NBA 16-team playoff field is set, the NBA Playoffs will proceed in a traditional conference-based format with four rounds and best-of-seven series in each round. The 2020 NBA Finals will end no later than Oct. 13.
