Miami routed New Orleans 109-94 in their previous meeting but that was back in mid-November, well before rookie Zion Williamson had his NBA debut in January. He’s been impressive in his brief 15-game career, averaging 24.1 points, 6.8 boards and 2.1 assists per game while averaging 29 minutes. 

The Pelicans are 9-7 SU since his debut that includes a win for which he was rested. For the season, New Orleans is just 12-18 at home, barely better than Miami’s 13-18 road record.

Opposite momentum for the teams dates back to late December. Over their last 30 games New Orleans is a solid 19-11 SU whereas Miami is just 16-14. And the Heat are just 1-6 both SU and ATS in their last six road games. PELICANS
