The LA Clippers are coming off a recent loss to the Warriors on Sunday as they head into their Monday night contest against the Pelicans.
The Clippers did lose a shocker to the Pelicans earlier this year, and need to avoid that again. Our team is well-coached, and not likely to see two upsets against the same team like that.
The Clips enter this game at 11-9 and fifth in the West. The Pelicans are 5-17 and second-to-last in the conference. The issue is that the Western Conference is beating itself up this year.
The last three teams in the top eight are sitting at .500. This conference is eating each other alive this year, so upsets like what the Pelicans are hoping for tonight need to be avoided.

Clippers vs Pelicans Prediction
The Clippers will beat the Pelicans. They’re getting a little healthier, and they’ll learn from their last tough outing against the Pelicans.
The Clips haven’t been perfect this year, but they’re still coached by an elite guy in Ty Lue who’s made his reputation off of making adjustments from game to game. He’s going to know how to respond to a Pelicans team that just beat the Clippers.
