The Phoenix Suns travel to the Smoothie King Center to battle the New Orleans Pelicans tonight.
The Suns have won four of their last five and are coming off an impressive 114-107 comeback win over the Nuggets.

Meanwhile, the Pelicans were suffering through a five-game losing streak before their surprising 104-90 win over the Spurs on Friday. Anthony Davis had a nice game of 20 points and 18 rebounds and was big in the fourth quarter while Ish Smith added 17 points and 13 assists, but the biggest performance came from Ryan Anderson who sunk six 3-pointers en route to a game-high 30 points. To be fair, the Spurs played probably their worst game of the season, but the Pelicans were good enough to take full advantage and improve to 2-11 on the season and 2-4 at home.
In ATS trends, the Suns are 4-1 ATS in their last five road game and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall, while the Pelicans are 4-10 ATS in the last 14 games overall and 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games.
Head to head, the Suns are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in New Orleans and the home team is 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings.
Both the Suns and the Pelicans are coming into this game off impressive wins, but I have to give the edge to the Suns who actually have more than just two wins on the season.
