Free NBA Prediction:
Look for the high powered Cavaliers offense to roll in this home matchup. Expect Anthony Davis to get his points but the Cavs being too Much.
The Cavaliers has too much fire power for this weak Pelicans team at this points in the season. With Kyrie Irving getting his legs back under him I do not see anyone on the Pelicans that will be able to keep him in check.
