Phoenix Suns vs New Orleans Pelicans prediction

The Phoenix Suns are riding a nice winning streak, and they're worth a look when Durant, Booker, and Beal share the court together. However, the Pelicans are as healthy as they've been all season, and they're quietly one of the hotter teams in the league with wins in 8 of their last 11 games. The Pels have also covered 7 of their last 10 games, which is kind of sweet. The Pelicans feel like a team that's coming together, while the Suns are a banged up body away from going back to inconsistency. I'll lay the bucket with the Pelicans at home.
