What to know

The Pelicans will play all four quarters on Monday, but things are expected to be wrapped up long before then. They will play at home against the Toronto Raptors at 8:00 PM ET at the Smoothie King Center. The Pelicans are coming off a win while the Raptors are reeling from a loss.

Last Friday, New Orleans outlasted the Spurs 114-113 thanks to a clutch driving layup from Zion Williamson with 3 seconds left in the fourth quarter. The Pelicans were down 78-66 with 7:55 left in the third quarter but still came back for the handy one-point victory.

Wilson was the offensive standout in the game as he scored 33 points along with eight rebounds. He is moving in the right direction, as he has improved his point output for three straight games.

Meanwhile, the Raptors put up a good fight in their overtime game against the Thunder on Sunday but ended up with a less than desirable result. They took a 135-127 blow to the loss column at the hands of the Thunder. The Raptors were up 23 in the third but still couldn’t close the deal.

The win makes it two in a row for New Orleans and bumps their season record up to 28-21. As for Toronto, they have traveled a rocky road recently after losing seven of their last eight games, which put a noticeable dent in their 17-32 record this season.

This competition is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: the Pelicans have not given up the ball easily this season, having only averaged 12.7 turnovers per game. However, it doesn’t look like the Raptors are struggling in that department as they have been averaging just 12.8 turnovers per game. With these competitive strengths, it will be interesting to see how their rivalry plays out.

The Pelicans came up short against the Raptors in their last meeting back in February 2023, falling 115-110. Will the Pelicans have more luck at home than on the road?
