Something to Consider:
Revenge Factor: The Pelicans embarrassed the Kings the last time these two teams met, blowing them out on their home floor. That loss came after the Kings had several days off to prepare as well. Hopefully that loss is fresh in their minds. These games are incredibly important now, and the Kings need to avoid going on multi-game losing streaks if they hope to make up ground in the West and stay in the playoff conversation.
Odds and Ends:
The injury situation for each team goes as follows:
Pelicans: Tyreke Evans (Questionable, Right Knee Tendonitis), Anthony Davis (Doubtful, Concussion), Eric Gordon (Out, Broken Finger)
