Spurs vs Pelicans prediction

The Pelicans are the better team and should be favored at home as they're fighting to stay out of the play-in tournament. However, this is a lot of points. Despite the losses, the Spurs have covered 7 of their last 10 games. The Pelicans have ailed to cover 5 of their last 6 games. The Pelicans are still without Alvarado and Ingram due to injuries. Zion Williamson is also questionable with a finger injury. The Pelicans and Spurs played a one point game back in February. Give me the Spurs and the boatload of points in this spot.
