New Orleans’ challenge to Memphis for the 8th and final West playoff spot took a bit of a detour last week when the Griz suddenly began to win again and the Pels lost three straight. New Orleans has gotten things back on track with back-to-back wins this week, but they could certainly use a road win at Sacramento to keep the ball rolling. The Gold Sheet offers their Kings vs. Pelicans preview for Wednesday night:

Date/Time: 03-11-2020, 22:30 EDT
Opening Spread: New Orleans -1.5
Opening Total: 235

Not much defense for New Orleans lately with Alvin Gentry’s boys allowing better than 129 points per game in last week’s mini-slump. The schedule eases up a bit in later March for Zion & Co., but some tricky tests until then. Sacramento is moving into the fringe of playoff contention, too, with an unexpected ten wins in their last 15 games. The Kings have a top-10 offense and defense, leading to a +6.2 net rating, since the All-Star break. That suggests that this Sacramento surge might continue a bit longer.
