Philadelphia 76ers vs New Orleans Pelicans Odds and Prediction: Preview

New Orleans Pelicans, will be looking to run a better campaign in the 2021-22 NBA season, having finished the previous season placed 11th in the NBA Western Conference. Of the 72 games in the 2020-21 NBA season, the Pelicans suffered 41 defeats and were able to muster only 31 wins.

Pelicans who were a playoff contending team back when they had Anthony Davis seem to have lost their edge since the big trade involving the Lakers. They acquired Lakers young core in exchange of Anthony Davis. Players like Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball who were acquired in the trade, led the charge for the Pelicans for past two seasons. Zion Williamson, who was drafted #1 in the 2019 draft has been ruled out of injury in the 2021 season opener.

Last year he was the only all-star selected from NOP. Pelicans also parted ways with point guard Lonzo Ball who was traded to Chicago Bulls in this off-season. Major rumours in the office regarding Zion Williamson’s status of playing for NOP have also been in the news. It is said that Zion is not satisfied and will change franchise in the near future. With all the rebuilding and rumours can NOP regain momentum and qualify for these years playoffs?

Philadelphia 76ers was the number 1 seed in the Eastern Conference last year and finished with a 49-23 record. They had a 2nd round exit against the Atlanta Hawks. They lost in game 7 of the eastern conference finals last year. They signed Doc Rivers as their head coach in the last season.

76ers have major concerns regarding their all-star player Ben Simmons who was heavily criticised during last year playoffs as he wasn’t able to deliver at the grand stage. Simmons averaged just 9.9 points in the series, made one-third of his free throws and passed up a layup down the stretch of the decisive game. He probably wants out of Philly.

In recent news, Rivers suspended Simmons for the 1st match against New Orleans due his behaviour. Things seem tense between Simmons and the 76ers organization. They were 2-2 in the preseason and the 2 wins came against the Nets and the Raptors.

Philadelphia 76ers vs New Orleans Pelicans Odds and Prediction: Key players

Joel Embiid (76ers) – A beast and leader. He is arguably the best center in the league. He averaged 28.5 points and 10.6 rebounds in the last season. He was in contention of the MVP award last season.

Seth Curry (76ers) – The 31-year-old shooting guard puts proper respect to his name. the brother of Steph Curry is himself a menace when he gets hot.

Tobias Harris (76ers)- He averaged 19.5 points and 6.8 rebounds last season is a key player in the 76ers rotation.

Brandon Ingram (NOP) – The 2019 season all-star has the potential of becoming all-time great. His lean physique and dangerous crossovers remind of us Kevin Durant. He was awarded with the Most Improved Player award back in 2019.

Jonas Valančiūnas (NOP) – One of the recent signings for Pelicans, Valančiūnas averaged 12.5 rebounds per game during his time in Memphis.
