LAC vs NOP Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Los Angeles Clippers will be looking to snap their two-game losing streak when they host New Orleans Pelicans in NBA at Staples Center, in Los Angeles, on Tuesday morning (IST).

Los Angeles Clippers are coming into this match on the back of two straight defeats. They lost 104-109 in the last game at home against the Detroit Pistons. And before that, there was a 121-100 loss to Denver Nuggets. Those two losses have taken some sheen out of the repairing job Tobias Harris and Co. has done in the recent games. However, the Clippers still sit comfortably in the playoff position. With a 24-18 record, they are 6th in the Western Conference.

New Orleans Pelicans, on the other hand, are experiencing a dip in their form this season. After starting the season with four consecutive wins, they have gone down the hill, winning just 16 games out of the last 39 they played. It’s a very bad return for a team eying a silverware to quench Anthony Davis’ thirst.

Regular Season Record-
Los Angeles Clippers: W-24, L-18
New Orleans Pelicans: W-20, L-23

Players to watch out for:

Los Angeles Clippers:
Tobias Harris – He plays good, Clippers normally win. He couldn’t score enough in the last two games and no surprise, Clippers lost those games. He is somebody who ticks his team into action and Clippers are certainly riding on his shoulder this season. The 26-year-old is averaging 20.8 points per game, the most for the Los Angeles Clippers, and is racking 8.1 rebounds per game which is highest for his team as well.
Danilo Gallinari – Scored 23 points in the losing cause in the last match. The 30-year-old is having one of the best seasons of his career so far, averaging almost in the 20s, something he has never achieved until this season. He is also averaging 31.8 minutes per game, the 2nd most for Clippers in the 2018-19 campaign.

New Orleans Pelicans:
Anthony Davis – The one player Pelicans are hellbent to tie to a long contract is Anthony Davis. Big NBA vultures are circling over him for his signature which shows how highly other teams think of him. In fact, he has nothing to prove at this stage in his career as he has already become the true giant in this sport. His season average is hovering near about 30 points, 28.9 points per game to be precise. He is just too good, destines for greatness.
Jrue Holiday – This has been a good season up until now for the 28-year-old point guard. In a team where Davis plies his trade, Holiday has managed to stand out in his own zone. In the last game, he racked up 25 points, taking his season average to 20.8 points per game. An indispensable part in Pelicans’ roster.

LAC vs NOP Dream11 Fantasy Team:

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

New Orleans Pelicans are nowhere near the level of last season. The wins have come in dribs and drabs, leaving the franchise out of the playoffs spots at things stand.
In addition, Los Angles Clippers have taken their game to new levels this season and at the moment sit above their more esteemed franchise Los Angeles Lakers in the table.
A win for Clippers is our call.
