Pelicans vs Suns prediction

this is a massive game for the Pelicans and Suns, as they're both fighting to stay out of the play-in tournament. The issue is the Pelicans are still without Ingram and Alvarado, and now Zion Williamson is questionable with a finger injury. The Suns are as healthy as they've been all year, and they've won 7 of their last 9 games as they make that last second push in the standings. The Suns have won 6 of the last 8 games against the Pelicans, and that includes a 13 point on the road last week. With health and home court on their side, give me the Suns and the reasonable line.
