How to watch Pelicans vs. Clippers: NBA live stream info, TV channel, time, game odds

Through 3 Quarters

Only one more quarter stands between the New Orleans Pelicans and the win they were favored to collect going into this night. Three quarters in and their offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating the Los Angeles Clippers 87-65.

New Orleans has enjoyed the tag-team combination of power forward Herbert Jones and center Jonas Valanciunas. The former has 12 points along with six rebounds, while the latter has posted a double-double on 16 points and 13 boards. This makes it five consecutive games in which Valanciunas has had at least ten rebounds.

Small forward Terance Mann has led the way so far for Los Angeles, as he has 15 points.

Halftime deficits have spelled doom for the Clippers, who haves lost 86% of the games in which they were down going into the the fourth quarter.

What to Know

The Los Angeles Clippers have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the New Orleans Pelicans and are hoping to record their first win since Jan. 13 of last year. They will face off against one another at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday at Smoothie King Center. The two teams each escaped (but just barely!) with wins against their previous opponents.

It was a close one, but on Tuesday Los Angeles sidestepped the Denver Nuggets for an 87-85 victory. The win came about thanks to a strong surge after the half to overcome a 41-28 deficit. Small forward Amir Coffey was the offensive standout of the game for the Clippers, picking up 18 points and seven assists along with five rebounds.

Speaking of close games: New Orleans sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 128-125 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday. It was another big night for New Orleans’ small forward Brandon Ingram, who shot 6-for-7 from beyond the arc and finished with 33 points and nine assists.

Los Angeles is expected to lose this next one by 3.5. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Los Angeles is now 21-21 while the Pelicans sit at 15-26. A couple offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Clippers are fifth worst in the league in points per game, with only 104.7 on average. New Orleans has experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 43.70% percent of their shots, which is the fifth lowest field goal percentage in the league. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
