New Orleans Pelicans
Anthony Davis got the old heave-ho for the first time in his career on Wednesday night. He was rolling with 17 points and six boards in the middle of the second quarter but got two technical fouls in the span of 15 seconds.
The first one came on a no-call when he though he was fouled. Then he got called for a foul on defense and lost it again. After the ejection, Minnesota went on a 17–6 run and never looked back.
It was a shame because Jrue Holliday had a big game. The Pelicans just have to win every game when they get a good performance from someone other than Davis or DeMarcus Cousins.
So after getting a season-high three games over .500, the Pelicans have dropped two in a row, to worthy opponents, nonetheless. New Orleans is 6–5 on the road this season but all the wins have been against bad teams. Well, all except maybe a win in Indy. A win in Utah would be their best road win on the season.
That’s because the Jazz look all right and they are are always good at home. Derrick Favors had a big game and Utah blew out the Denver Nuggets the other night. Of course, the Nuggets don’t play any defense whenever they hit the road and only occasionally run offense. Denver is just dreadful away from the Pepsi Center.
Utah might miss Rudy Gobert in this game especially, and for obvious reasons. The Pelicans have those two monsters inside and the Jazz have been starting Jonas Jerebko at the four. That won’t work, for just as obvious reasons.
The problem is that Quinn Synder really doesn’t have any other option. He can play Ekpe Udoh but he doesn’t have the stamina to run with Davis or Cousins for any more than 15 minutes, nor is he good enough to defend either. If Utah shoots the lights out from three, it can stay in this game but the matchup problem with whomever Favors isn’t guarding is just going to be too big to overcome.

Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction: the Pelicans win and win big.
Number is going to be interesting here. Based on power rankings alone, the Jazz are probably a small favorite but Vegas has to take the matchup into play. Either way, I like New Orleans to cover any number.
