Monday, November 12 finds the New Orleans Pelicans meeting up vs. the Toronto Raptors. The Pelicans beat the Suns in their last game while the Raptors beat the Knicks.
Last season, Toronto swept New Orleans and are on a six game win streak vs. New Orleans. The Raptors hold the all-time record having bested the Pelicans 22 of their 35 matches.
New Orleans Pelicans
Without Elfrid Payton in the line-up the Pelicans suffered a six game losing streak prior to getting back on track with two consecutive victories.
Beating the Suns and Bulls however isn’t going to instill a ton of confidence they can emulate those results against the team with the league’s best record and an explosive offense.
During the two game home stand the Pelicans were able to reign in their defense and hold both opponents under 100 points, Anthony Davis delivered back to back solid performances appearing to have no lingering effects from the sore elbow which limited him during the Pelicans losing streak.
One player who’ll be amped to play the Raptors is Julius Randle who has historically performed well against the Raptors. He recorded 22 points, 15 rebounds , three assists and two blocks in extended minutes filling in for the injured Mirotic.
Nikola Mirotic (right ankle sprain) is questionable for the game in Toronto. Elfrid Payton (right ankle sprain) has missed the last seven games and is questionable for Monday’s game against the Raptors.
Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green have melded into the Raptors system with ease and Toronto have yet to lose a game in which Leonard plays.
Saturday’s defeat of the Knicks offered another sign of the Raptors depth as the starters sat while the reserves closed out the contest. This was a critical step forward since each of Fred VanVleet, Delon Wright and OG Anunoby (personal) all missed numerous games to start the season.
Against the Knicks the reserve unit finally seemed to discover their timing and showcased the type of prowess which led to the bench mob’s success of a season ago.
Kyle Lowry continues to lead the Association in assists per game (11.0) while both Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas are reveling in their new roles splitting time at center.
Most Improved candidate Pascal Siakam is displaying growth in all areas of his game delivering back to back career bests in scoring. Coach Nick Nurse stated Siakam has earned the starting role based on his recent success and how he fits with the starters.
Norman Powell (subluxation left shoulder) is expected out between four-to-six weeks.

- Over Under is 7-3 in team’s last 10 head to head matchups
Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
With a single loss and none on their home court it is hard to bet against the Raptors. However, several Pelicans have historically played strong versus Toronto. Still, bank on Toronto staying unbeaten at home. If Mirotic plays I might be swayed to Toronto not covering the spread though.
