The inspired New Orleans Pelicans visit the Cleveland Cavaliers, who look to win their first home game of the season.

The Pelicans opened the season 3-2 and they’re two games behind the Grizzlies and the Rockets in the Southwest Division after last Saturday’s surprising 100-99 road win over the Spurs. Anthony Davis led the way with 27 points and 11 rebounds and he averages team-bests with 24.4 points, 12.8 rebounds, 4.4 blocks and 2.2 steals.

The Cavaliers return home after a four-game road trip in which they went 2-2. They’re currently tied for 3rd place in the Central Division, two games behind the Bulls after last Friday’s 110-101 road win over the struggling Nuggets. LeBron James finished with 22 points and 11 of his team’s 25 assists as the Cavs moved the ball around often, which resulted in 56 points in the paint. Kevin Love scored 19 and grabbed eight rebounds and Kyrie Irving added 12 points and a season-high six assists.

The Pelicans are a bit underrated and if the Cavs can’t contain Davis then it could be another long night in Cleveland. Davis has proven that he has what it takes to lead the Pelicans to the playoffs for the first time in his career and this game means a lot to his team while the Cavaliers are still trying to gel. It will be a close game throughout and the Pelicans are at a decent price.
