New Orleans Pelicans vs San Antonio Spurs prediction

The New Orleans Pelicans probably still win this game, but they've been in a funk these last couple of weeks and could be without Nance, Williamson, and Herb Jones. The San Antonio Spurs have played their best ball at home, and they've quietly covered 5 of their last 8 games. I'd check the injury report before locking anything in here, but the way it's looking, the Spurs will be the healthier side. Give me the points and the home team if forced to pick.
