What is the point to analyze in detail the history of face-to-face confrontations of these rivals if Pelicans won 9 previous matches against the Cavaliers, while the Cavaliers last won in 2010 in New Orleans.

New Orleans Pelicans

The Warriors continue to hold the bar high as they lead the Western Conference. The team did everything possible to leave the Suns behind. However, given the opponent’s mood, it is clearly not worth relaxing. In the last meeting, Golden State dealt with its closest rival Phoenix (116:107). Stephen Curry again showed his best side and scored 33 points. The stellar point guard is simply unstoppable this season. After this defeat, the “sunny” managed to concede once again, so Steve Kerr’s guys can breathe out a little. Clay Thompson, who has not played for almost two years due to an injury, is close to returning to the floor. The 31-year-old basketball player took part in the Development League matches to get practice. In a word, soon the “warriors” will be in full force.

Cleveland Cavaliers

Cleveland continues to play without Evan Mobley and Jarette Allen, but the Cavaliers are not affected by this. In the last match Bickerstaff’s players left no chances for Toronto, defeating the latter with a score of 144:99. The best in the Cavs lineup were Darius Garland and Kevin Love. Each of these players scored 22 points. Also 20 points are on the account of Lauri Markkanen. Recent successes have put Cleveland in fifth place in the East. In the near future, they will not be out of the top 6. After all, the gap between the Cavs and the seventh position is three wins.

Prediction

Cleveland has an excellent line of defense. In 4 of the last 5 matches Bickerstaff's wards did not allow their opponents to score even 100 points. It is likely that in the confrontation with New Orleans, the "cavalry" will choose a similar tactic. "Pelicans" do not know how to open protective redoubts. In this case, they are unlikely to be able to succeed. It is quite possible that the Cavs will win another landslide victory. Our prediction is that Cleveland will win, taking into account the handicap (-4.5) points for the odds of 1.80 in BC 1xBet. Cleveland has an average of 102.6 points away from home. New Orleans do not have the strongest offensive line. With the players that Pelicans have available, it will be very difficult to open the defensive redoubts of the guests. The second prediction is for the total of New Orleans is less than 106.5 points for 1.65. Place a bet on the line of 1xBet with odds of 1.80. Promo code for registration - ODDS2WIN.
