In a season of ups and downs, the Utah Jazz have been on an upward trajectory lately. This is what happens when your best players are regularly available. Especially when those top players are Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert and co.
New Orleans Pelicans can’t understand. Their best player hasn’t seen the ground this season. these Pelicans (26-36) still have talent. Brandon Ingram is an All-Star caliber talent, and newly acquired CJ McCollum isn’t far behind. They may still have trouble against Jazz (39-22).
After serious hardships, the Utah Jazz are the benefactors of good health and a flexible schedule. Tonight’s contest is no exception.

Utah Jazz vs New Orleans Pelicans Prediction
This one is actually a little closer than casual observers might think. The Pelicans have played a role lately. The dynamic duo of Brandon Ingram and CJ McCollum seem to be gelling, as the team has won 3 straight games, including an impressive 117-102 against the Phoenix Suns.
Their last game was a 125-95 thrashing of the Sacramento Kings. These pelicans may project themselves as a lottery club, but they don’t tank. On the contrary, they are treading water waiting for Williamson’s return. They seem to be concerned about improving his prolonged absence.
It’s all very beautiful. They’re still not likely to beat the Utah Jazz. In other words, Jazz is deeper and more talented. As hot as the Pelicans have been, the Jazz have been hotter, winning 9 of their last 10 contests.
We predict a narrow victory for the Jazz tonight.
Prediction: Jazz 119, Pelicans 115
