New Orleans Pelicans vs. Los Angeles Clippers preview: Odds, props, injuries, TV & more

The New Orleans Pelicans visit the Western Conference-leading Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night in a clash on ESPN between two of the best three-point shooting teams in the NBA.

The Clippers are in a four-team race for the top spot out West, while the Pelicans are in seventh place, riding a three-game winning streak and sitting half a game back from escaping the Play-In places.

Pelicans star Zion Williamson is questionable with a foot injury, which could have some bearing on the outcome of this clash.
