The Pelicans are coming off a 23-point victory against the injury-depleted New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden in which Troy Murphy III scored 26, Brandon Ingram had 24 and Zion Williamson had 21. The Pels finished the game with a 41-point fourth quarter. New Orleans badly needed the win after an 8-1 stretch was followed by bad home losses to the Heat and the Bulls. They now move on to play the fourth of nine straight games against Eastern Conference opponents. Indiana is coming off an 8-point home loss to the Raptors and now begins a stretch of five straight games against East opponents, including a game against these very same Pelicans on Friday night in New Orleans. The Pacers are favored by 5.5 tonight.

Dallas lost a heartbreaker on Strus’ buzzer-beater from beyond midcourt but got a 45-point outing from Luka Doncic. Doncic increased his league-leading scoring average to 34.5 points per game, which is one of the reasons why he is the +500 third choice behind Nikola Jokic (-165) and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (+220) in the Most Valuable Player futures market. Dallas has switched back to using rookie Derek Lively as the starting center, moving Daniel Gafford to the bench. Meanwhile, Kyrie Irving has gone for 34-29-29-30 in his last four games and is shooting 55.5 percent from the field this month. Toronto is on a modest three-game winning streak with wins over the Nets, Hawks and Pacers, with Scottie Barnes coming off a 21-12-12 triple double, his second this month.

Mavericks vs. Raptors Injury Report

Toronto center Jacob Poeltl is questionable with a left ankle sprain. Dallas point guard Donte Exum is questionable with a sprained right ankle.

We have the two most prolific triple-double guys in the NBA going at each other, with Domantas Sabonis having posted an incredible eight of them in his 11 games this month. He was snubbed for the Western Conference All-Star team and does not even appear on any Most Valuable Player futures markets, and we would advise snapping him up there if he ever gets listed because the Kings are one 10-game winning streak away from becoming the No. 1 seed in the West. Jokic has three consecutive triple-doubles, getting 16 assists in his last outing to reach that number for the fifth time this season. His points, rebounds and assists combined last game totaled 64, which is just plain sick. His combined totals in three previous games against the Kings were 63, 28 and 38, so he is a guessing game when it comes to playing Sacto.

Kings vs. Nuggets Injury Report

Sacramento point guard De’Aaron Fox is questionable with a sore left knee, and forward Sasha Vezenkov remains out with a right ankle sprain.

Lakers vs. Clippers Preview

NBA Schedule Today, Wednesday, February 28, 2024 – Game info - Lakers at Clippers

2023-24 NBA Regular Season

The Lakers are the “visitors” in their home arena coming off a 10-point loss Sunday at Phoenix in which the Lakers could not contain Suns center Jusuf Nurkic, who had 18 points, 22 rebounds and seven assists. That does not exactly jibe with the argument being made by Laker fans that Anthony Davis is Defensive Player of the Year material, but we expect a bounce-back effort from him tonight of some sort. The Clippers are being spoken about as the best long-term Western Conference championship contender (aside from the Nuggets) because of their superstar trio of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and James Harden, backed by Russell Westbrook coming off the bench.

Lakers vs. Clippers Injury Report

Davis (Achilles) and Cam Reddish (ankle sprain) are both being listed as probable, while James (ankle) is questionable, which is noteworthy because he is listed as probable almost every night. Jarred Vanderbilt (foot sprain) is out, as is Gabe Vincent (knee surgery) and Christian Wood (left knee effusion). George (left knee soreness) is out for the Clippers.
