Free NBA Pick and Preview: Brooklyn Nets vs New Orleans Pelicans
Date: Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at 7:35pm ET | Venue: Smoothie King Center, New Orleans
Spread: Pelicans -3| Total: 233.5 | Moneyline: New Orleans -150 | Check Current NBA Odds
As has often been the case with Brooklyn, the Nets will be at another degree of shorthandedness tonight, with Kevin Durant declared out (again) after Sunday’s thigh injury at Miami, and beware of Covid protocols with backup frontliners Nicolas Claxton and Reggie Perry forced to sit until further notice (keep an eye on situation to see if this list grows before tip-off). These developments all after LaMarcus Aldridge retired earlier in the weekend.

Meanwhile, James Harden and his sore hamstring will miss another game at Smoothie King, where Kyrie Irving will be the only one of Steve Nash’s top four scorers available. What we’re not sure is if we can trust the Pels, who conspired to blow a 6-point lead in the last two minutes at MSG on Sunday before losing in OT to the Knicks, NO’s third setback (SU and vs. line) in a row and hampering efforts to secure a West play-in spot. But Stan Van Gundy’s guys will at least have a revenge motive after a healthier Brooklyn (with Durant in his return game, and Aldridge also available) ran up a 139-111 scoreline at Barclays Center on April 11, shooting almost 56% from the floor in the process and limiting the Pels to just 6 of 27 conversions beyond the arc. Brandon Ingram also missed that game for the Van Gundys, a notable absence considering he’s scoring at nearly 27 ppg this month since returning to active duty in the following game vs. Philly.
The Irishman, Kevin Dolan has been on fire since St Patrick’s Day hitting 64% since mid-March winning 82.5%!! Going for a fifth straight 5% winner!! Kevin has also dominated his big plays going 73% on 4%+ selections including 10-2 (83%) his L/12. Best of all….NOW 17-4 (81%) HIS LAST 21 NBA SELECTIONS. Grab his NBA play for only TWO BUCKS!
Though we’re a bit hesitant to make a strong recommendation here, recent home wins against the Mavs and Sixers suggest NO certainly capable of coming out ahead.
