Who’s Playing

New Orleans @ Los Angeles

Current Records: New Orleans 34-43; Los Angeles 38-40

What to Know

The Los Angeles Clippers have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the New Orleans Pelicans and are hoping to record their first win since Jan. 13 of last year. The Clippers will be playing at home against New Orleans at 9:30 p.m. ET Sunday. Los Angeles knows how to get points on the board — the squad has finished with flashy point totals in its past three matchups — so hopefully the Pelicans like a good challenge.

You’re bound to get a positive result if you outscore your opponent every quarter, and that’s exactly how it played out for Los Angeles this past Friday. They put a hurting on the Milwaukee Bucks on the road to the tune of 153-119. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Los Angeles had established a 114-88 advantage. They can attribute much of their success to power forward Robert Covington, who shot 11-for-18 from downtown and finished with 43 points and eight rebounds, and shooting guard Amir Coffey, who shot 5-for-9 from beyond the arc and finished with 32 points, seven dimes and six boards.

Meanwhile, it was all tied up 50-50 at the half for the Pelicans and the Los Angeles Lakers this past Friday, but New Orleans stepped up in the second half for a 114-111 victory. New Orleans’ success was spearheaded by the efforts of small forward Brandon Ingram, who had 29 points and seven assists along with eight boards, and shooting guard CJ McCollum, who had 32 points in addition to seven rebounds.

The Clippers found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 113-89 punch to the gut against New Orleans in the teams’ previous meeting in January. Maybe Los Angeles will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
