Pelicans: The Pelicans have had a strange opening month or so of the season. They looked great to start, then went on a brutal West Coast road trip that, along with an elbow injury to Anthony Davis, was a major contributor in a six-game losing streak. Recently, they've beat up on the Bulls and Suns to get back to .500. Are they a top contender in the West? Probably not, but when everyone is healthy they're a really strong team.
Raptors: So much for the Raptors struggling to adjust out of the gate with Kawhi Leonard. They're just crushing teams left and right, opening up a league-best 12-1 record with their only loss coming to the high-powered Bucks. Leonard has proved to be everything the Raptors hoped when they made the deal, and Kyle Lowry has been tremendous as well. Add in a top-tier defense, and the Raptors are looking like a real powerhouse.
Game prediction, pick
Nine points is a lot against a healthy Pelicans team, even if the Raptors are at home. I like Toronto to win this game, but I'll take New Orleans to keep it close and cover that spread.
