There are too many permutations to discuss here. As you can see both of these teams have the same record and most likely both are in but the one thing for sure is that whoever wins is assured a spot in the playoffs starting soon. It is hard to imagine that San Antonio is skirting it so close. isn’t it.
On the other hand given the loss of Demarcus Cousins it has been impressive the way that the Pelicans have stayed in the fight. They are on a roll now too.
San Antonio Spurs
Even if they have already clinched a playoff berth it is weird seeing San Antonio where it is in the standings. Are they just lying in the weeds, I don’t think so. This is a limited group to me.
Given that he has not played in forever you are not going to seek Kawhi Leonard in this one, though given it is the final game of the season it doesn’t really matter much.
The only consistent players for the Spurs this season has been Lamarcus Aldridge, though you have to wonder if he wishes he stayed in Portland with the way things have turned out.
You never want to put things past coach Popovich but this is one of the weirdest rosters in the NBA. There are so many veterans who are past their best before date and the young players are nowhere near elite, save Leonard.
They are the top defensive team in the league though and even in a league where offenses are ramping up that has tremendous value.
New Orleans Pelicans
LeBron James is the best player in the game but you can make an argument that Anthony Davis’ impact on New Orleans is pretty comparable. He leads the team in scoring, rebounding, blocks and steals. If he was doing all of that in almost any other market he would be the face of the league but right now he is doomed to Giannis status.
I loved the addition of Rajon Rondo this offseason. He will never become a great shooter but his game fits and on those rare days when he is making some shots this team looks like it is going places. At least he knows his limitations which is key for any player.
His presence also means that Jrue Holiday can be more of a scorer, which is his best quality. When he has to worry about keeping the Brow happy it takes away from his natural ability to score from all corners of the floor. He is a solid secondary option on most nights and dynamite as a third when Cousins is around.

Free San Antonio Spurs vs. New Orleans Pelicans NBA Prediction:
Under the best of times the Spurs are sometimes difficult to predict with their rotation. If they don’t need this one than who knows.
At home you should be able to get a better effort out of the Pelicans but there is no guarantee there either.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pelicans -3
I think in a game like this the total probably makes more sense. San Antonio may play defense but I am no expecting max exertion here so probably an over.
