The New Orleans Pelicans are more talented than their record indicates, but the losses and failed covers are getting out of control. For now, the Pelicans are automatic fade material. The Dallas Mavericks have offensive issues, but there’s upside here, and they’re coming off an emotional win that could wake the rest of the team up. Thick number, but it’s Mavs or pass for me.
