This Tuesday, December 13, the Utah Jazz will welcome the New Orleans Pelicans for a matchup at Vivint Arena. The game is scheduled for 9:00 PM EST. Will this be the Pelicans’ chance to avenge that close game earlier in the season?
The Utah Jazz are coming off a dismal loss to the Nuggets. They struggled on both ends of the court for their second straight loss. While the Pelicans are coming off a win against the Suns, where they showed a better offense.
The Utah Jazz come into this game with a good offense, averaging 116 points per game. The offense is led by Lauri Markkanen and his 22 points, unfortunately he is a questionable presence due to illness. Defensively they only allow 115 points per game. They are good at defending shots but still must try to win every rebound in order to get on the scoreboard.
The Pelicans are 9-1 in their last 10 games. Their offense is averaging 117 points per game on 48% shooting from the field. Let’s see if that holds up with Utah’s defense. The offense is led by none other than Zion Williamson and his 25 points per game. Defensively they only allow 110 points showing a good balance on both sides of the court.
The truth is that it will be a very tough game for the Utah Jazz, they will have to work to stop Williamson and prioritize winning all the rebounds. The Pelicans perform well on both ends of the court, so they will have no problem keeping the Utah Jazz offense out of the arc, they are a better team overall so betting against the Pelicans would not be a wise decision. The Pelicans will cover the spread easily.
