The New Orleans Pelicans have shown flashes here and there over the last month, and they've had great covering success in spots like this, so I can understand leaning toward the points. For me, I need more than the four they're offering. The Los Angeles Clippers are a veteran team that will be eager to rebound from a blown opportunity against the Timberwolves, and they're as healthy as they've been all year. Also, the Clippers are winning their last five games by an average of 17.4 points while allowing 40.7 percent shooting from the field. Give me another bucket or two, and we could talk. I lean Clippers with the reasonable line.
