The fans at Capitol One Arena will be treated to a game between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Washington Wizards when they take their seats on Tuesday.

ABOUT THE PELICANS (15-15): Defense has been an issue for New Orleans as it has allowed more than 100 points in each of the past 11 games, losing seven of the contests. The Pelicans are allowing an average of 117.6 points during the stretch – they have given up 120 or more four times – and rank 29th (of 30) in scoring defense at 111.7 per game. Guard Jrue Holiday scored 25 points against the Nuggets and is averaging 26.7 points over the past seven games, scoring 34 or more three times during the stretch.

ABOUT THE WIZARDS (16-14): Point guard John Wall is still working his way back into top shape after a knee injury and he had 15 points and a season-best 10 rebounds against Cleveland in his third game back. Wall is averaging just 14.3 points since his return and his shooting has been suspect – 17-of-47 – while committing 10 turnovers. Small forward Otto Porter Jr. (hip) was badly missed against the Cavaliers and coach Scott Brooks feels he will be available against the Pelicans.

Oddsmakers opened the Wizards as -3-point favorites versus the Pelicans, while the game’s total opened at 219.

The Washington Wizards aim to continue their tradition of success against New Orleans when they host the Pelicans on Tuesday. Washington has won 10 of the past 11 meetings with the Pelicans, and won last season’s two meetings by an average of 13.5 points.

The Wizards suffered a 106-99 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday when their offense disintegrated and they scored just 16 fourth-quarter points. “Shots just didn’t go in,” Washington shooting guard Bradley Beal said afterward. “We had a lot of good looks, a lot of open 3s, a lot of easy ones at the rim. A few turnovers hurt us, but all in all, we had good shots. They just didn’t go.” New Orleans also is coming off a loss and it blew an 18-point lead en route to a 117-111 loss to the Denver Nuggets. Power forward Anthony Davis tweaked his left ankle while contributing 28 points, 12 rebounds and five blocked shots but is expected to play against the Wizards.

The Wizards were a 106-99 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Cavaliers. They failed to cover the -2.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score (205) made winners of UNDER bettors.

In their last action, New Orleans was a 117-111 loser on the road against the Nuggets. They failed to cover the +1.5-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (228) was profitable news for OVER bettors.
