You can make a case for either side here, as both teams are on fire down the stretch, and this is easily one of the best games on a stacked Tuesday NBA card. The Sacramento Kings in the underdog role is hard to pass up. However, the New Orleans Pelicans appear to have found their stride which includes winning their last 5 games by an average of 14.2 points, and you know the crowd will be out for this one. A statement game for the Pels and home court is the edge. I'll lay the bucket.
