Orlando Magic vs New Orleans Pelicans (By: Miyagi)
The Magic are getting hot again as they are making one last push and looking to put some extra pressure on the Heat for that last playoff spot. They have won their last two games by double-digit (against the Hawks and the Cavs) but the Magic to win 3 games in a row by 10 or more points that a bit too much, I will give them credit if they do but I don't trust them with my money.
The Pelicans will miss their leaders, Jrue and Davis and that probably gives an extra edge to Vucevic offensively but I'm going with Gordon who is much more essential and needed for the Magic in this game. The Magic will need Gordon to counter the Pelicans current threat, Randle, and at least he seems to have his playing time secured here. Gordon is having a very good month as he averages a bit over 17 points, with 8 rebounds and 4 assists. It won't be strange to see him having a boost in his numbers today against the Pelicans' worst defender (at least in their starting lineup) while he should also have some extra assists, as everyone does against that terrible defense, and i can see him playing while Vucevic will take a rest and collect some extra rebounds. I like his total here, which could be covered by just points and assists.
