Jazz vs Pelicans Game Preview: 

Now, the Utah Jazz come into this game 39-22 overall, but just 17-12 on the road this season. They’ve been on fire lately winning their last 3 games in a row and 9 of their last 10 matchups.

They now have to face this New Orleans team that most likely won’t be making the playoffs, but they’ve won their last 3 games and hungry to make it four in a row.  They got wins against the Suns, Lakers, then on Wednesday Night to the Kings.

Hopefully they can continue building that chemistry, so when Zion Williamson does make his return they’ll be a very dangerous team to face.

In the last 3 games, the Pelicans have scored an average of 121.7 points and the Jazz have scored an average of 121.3 points.

Defensively in their last 3 matchups, New Orleans has played great only giving an average of 97.3 points while Utah has struggled giving up an average of 116.7 points.

Keep in mind that those stats just mentioned for Utah are skewed a little bit higher due to that 132-127 overtime win against Houston on Wednesday Night.

The Jazz are 6-3 against the spread in their last 9 games and the total has gone over in 5 of Utah’s last 6 games on the road.

The Pelicans are 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 games and the total has gone under in 6 of New Orleans’ last 9 games this season.
