Pelicans vs Hawks Game Info

2022 NBA Summer League Game
New Orleans Pelicans (0-1) vs. Atlanta Hawks (0-1)
Date: Monday, July 11, 2022
Time: 6 p.m. ET
Venue: Cox Pavilion — Las Vegas, NV

The New Orleans Pelicans and Atlanta Hawks square off in Las Vegas Summer League action on Monday. The Pelicans are looking to bounce back after their offense was nowhere to be found during an 85-68 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Hawks are also searching for the first win in Las Vegas. They came up short against the Utah Jazz on Saturday as well, losing 72-66. Only one team can walk out of Cox Pavilion on Monday with their first victory, leaving time to tell which squad that will be.

Pelicans vs Hawks Prediction & Pick

The Hawks have one of the weaker Summer League rosters, with 2022 first-round pick AJ Griffin being the only real standout. On the other hand, the Pelicans' lineup is loaded with rookies who are hungry, fighting to make an NBA roster.

While I think the Pelicans will win, their performance against the Trail Blazers has me wondering if they 6.5 points is too big of a spread. I expect the Hawks to keep it close, win or lose.

In other words, taking the Hawks at +6.5 (-118) on the spread is the best bet for this game.
