Orlando Magic and New Orleans Pelicans are set to meet on Thursday at the Smoothie King Center.

New Orleans Pelicans

The Pelicans are experiencing a tough stage, having lost 3 of their last 4 games, and are striving to break this negative cycle following a defeat against the Phoenix Suns with a score of 111:124 in their recent encounter. Despite demonstrating 47% accuracy in field-goal attempts along with 11 successful three-pointers out of 27, the Pelicans struggled to find their rhythm in defence; this was glaringly evident during the first quarter, where they conceded 46 points. Armed with a 45-30 record and fighting for a place in the top six of the Western Conference to avoid the play-in tournament, the Pelicans hit a snag following a series of successful outings which had consolidated their playoff position.

They achieved only three victories in their last six matches. Their recent defeats against the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns have particularly dented the team's morale, given their underperformance in three out of four home games at a critically important stage of the season. Despite the absence of Brandon Ingram due to injury, the team is hopeful of his prompt return to bolster their chances in upcoming games, although his appearance in the imminent match against Orlando Magic does not seem likely.

Orlando Magic

The Magic have been exhibiting impressive form, having clinched seven victories in their last ten games, and are aiming for their third consecutive win following their recent tight one-point victory over the Portland Trail Blazers (104-103). Showcasing 47% game shot accuracy and successfully throwing 11 out of 32 three-pointers, the Magic took a convincing control of the game in the second quarter and widened the gap to 15 points in the third quarter. The team has shown their determination by bagging consecutive wins over the Memphis Grizzlies and Portland, finishing their home series of games with a 5-3 record.

Coach Jamal Moseley stresses the importance of maintaining high standards and respect for each game. With five of their seven remaining away games, including formidable encounters in Milwaukee and Philadelphia, the Magic are facing significant challenges. However, their recent home victory over the New Orleans Pelicans, where Banchero secured a triple-double, gives the team confidence ahead of their upcoming games.

Match Prediction: New Orleans Pelicans vs. Orlando Magic

Caleb Houston’s participation in the upcoming match for the Orlando Magic is uncertain, whereas the New Orleans Pelicans still can't count on the assistance of Brandon Ingram and Jose Alvarado. Magic recently grappled with the Portland Trail Blazers, securing a victory that didn't make much of a splash. The Pelicans need to regain steam in order to stay in the playoffs; they play aggressively and swiftly at home stage, and Orlando could well adjust accordingly. My bet is on the TO (Total Over) 205.
