Suns vs Pelicans prediction

I guess the Pelicans are getting the edge because they're at home, but they've been shaky in their last few games. The Pelicans are also going to be without Ingram and Alvarado. The Suns are as healthy as they've been in quite some time, and they've won 5 of the last 7 games against the Pelicans. The Suns are also fighting to stay out of the play-in tournament, and the Pelicans are one of the teams they're competing with. Big game for both sides, I'll side with the Suns because of their health. The Pels are down two key players.
