Who’s Playing

Denver @ New Orleans

Current Records: Denver 26-21; New Orleans 18-29

What to Know

The New Orleans Pelicans haven’t won a matchup against the Denver Nuggets since March 21 of last year, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Friday. New Orleans will take on Denver at 8 p.m. ET at Smoothie King Center after having had a few days off. The Pelicans are out to keep their four-game home win streak alive.

New Orleans came up short against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday, falling 117-107. A silver lining for New Orleans was the play of center Willy Hernangomez, who dropped a double-double on 29 points and ten boards.

Meanwhile, Denver didn’t have too much breathing room in their game with the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday, but they still walked away with a 124-118 victory. The Nuggets’ center Nikola Jokic did his thing and almost posted a triple-double on 26 points, ten rebounds, and eight assists.

The Pelicans are expected to lose this next one by 5.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.

Denver’s win lifted them to 26-21 while New Orleans’ defeat dropped them down to 18-29. We’ll see if Denver can repeat their recent success or if New Orleans bounces back and reverse their fortune.
