I don't have a ton of trust in the New Orleans Pelicans due to inconsistency issues, but they have shown flashes here and there, and they need to win games like this if they're going to sneak into a play-in game. The Los Angeles Lakers continue to be a mess, they're not playing a lick of defense, and now they could be without LeBron, as he's listed as questionable with knee soreness. The Lakers in the favorite role regardless of opponent is tough to justify. Give me the Pels and free bucket.
