Pelicans Looking to Even Season Series against Timberwolves
The New Orleans Pelicans, who are now stuck with disgruntled superstar Anthony Davis for the remainder of their campaign, will attempt to somehow salvage their season as they get ready to resume hostilities in a matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The two Western Conference dwellers are scheduled to square off in the final installment of a four-game regular season series with the showdown set to be contested Friday night at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.

Vegas Sports Lines: New Orleans -6 T: 233.5
Davis, who has been held out of the last two games by the Pelicans, will be surrounded by some new faces upon his return after missing the past 9 games. But will he even play? They still have an outside chance to make the playoffs sitting six games behind the Clippers for the eighth spot but Davis’ value would greatly decrease if he gets hurt with 27 games to go on the year. The Timberwolves, who have won six of the last seven contests against the Pelicans, enter this affair as a 6-point road favorite, thanks to MyBookie Sportsbook, with the total set at 233.5 points.
