Nets @ Pelicans Sunday: Kevin Durant scores 33

With the loss, the Pelicans are now 24-15 overall on the season. This is a dangerous time in their season as they play without both Brandon Ingram and Williamson. Bettors should keep a close eye on New Orleans’ results and injury reports as there is a chance that the players that are in the lineup end up being overtaxed for minutes.

On Friday, 31-year-old CJ McCollum played 37 minutes, which is a lot, in the loss. The Pelicans are now set up for a loss to Dallas tomorrow as they have no time to rest their weary players before having to contest a difficult opponent.
