The Pelicans will face the Clippers tonight in their second game of the NBA 2020 restart. Here is a preview of the game where you can watch it.
The Pelicans will still be upset about their 104-106 loss to Utah Jazz as Brandon Ingram narrowly missed a 3-pointer as the clock expired. They turned an 11-point deficit to a 16-point lead and were still unable to get over the line.
The Clippers were also in a winning position before LeBron James snatched victory from the jaws of defeat for the Lakers. The Clippers will surely give their all on the court to come away with a victory here.
Since there are only 7 regular-season games left for these two teams, a victory here is important to secure a playoff spot for the Pelicans. They are in a massive mix in the Western Conference and desperately need to get going in order to make the cut.

How are the Pelicans and Clippers placed?
The Clippers are currently 2nd in the Western Conference table. The Pelicans are placed at 11th. This win is crucial for the Pelicans in ensuring they can secure a playoff spot. Their next games are against the Grizzlies, Kings, Spurs, Wizards and Magic.
Before the Pelicans face these teams, they have to face the experienced Clippers. The Pelicans will feature a young team going against the experienced Clippers line up that features Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.
Zion Williamson will most likely not be on a minutes restriction and if he is on the court all through, we should be in for a treat tonight. Zion and Lonzo vs Kawhi and PG should make for a blockbuster Saturday night in the bubble.
How will both teams lineup?
Brandon Ingram, who the Pelicans got from Lakers, will have the primordial role of keeping the star duo of Lenord and George quiet. Zion will surely get more than the 15 minutes he played last game. His presence will also help them defend the paint better and make the Pelicans a force to reckon with offensively.
Clippers are definitely feeling the absence of their experienced bench. Rondo’s injury and Williams quarantine definitely hurt them in their matchup against the Lakers. The absence of power forward Harrell has also affected the team’s performance.
LA Clippers (predicted line up): Reggie Jackson, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Patrick Patterson, Ivica Zubac
New Orleans Pelicans (predicted line up): Jrue Holiday, Josh Hart, Brandon Ingram, Zion Williamson, Derrick Favors
