Through 3 Quarters
The point spread is against the New Orleans Pelicans, but thus far the points are on their side. After three quarters it's looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Los Angeles Clippers as New Orleans lead 92-78.
The Pelicans have been led by center Jonas Valanciunas, who so far has shot 7-for-7 from downtown and has recorded 35 points and nine boards. A double-double would be Valanciunas' fourth in a row.
Los Angeles has lost 89% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this season, so this one seems just about wrapped up

Current Records: New Orleans 5-17; Los Angeles 11-9
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 January 13th. The Clippers are getting right back to it as they host New Orleans at 10:30 p.m. ET Nov. 29 at Staples Center. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
Los Angeles received a tough blow on Sunday as they fell 105-90 to the Golden State Warriors. The top scorer for Los Angeles was small forward Paul George (30 points).
Meanwhile, New Orleans was expected to have a tough go of it this past Saturday, and, well, they did. They have to be aching after a bruising 127-105 defeat to the Utah Jazz. New Orleans was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 64-45. Small forward Brandon Ingram had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with 11 points on 4-for-14 shooting and turning the ball over four times in his 26 minutes on the court.
The Clippers are the favorite in this one, with an expected 7-point margin of victory. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the team has let down bettors in their past three games.
Los Angeles is now 11-9 while the Pelicans sit at 5-17. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Los Angeles ranks third in the league when it comes to points allowed per game, with only 102.7 on average. Less enviably, New Orleans is stumbling into the matchup with the fourth fewest points per game in the league, having accrued only 101.9 on average. They might struggle to break 100.
