Covers Preview - The New Orleans Pelicans are hopeful of chasing down the Oklahoma City Thunder for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference and have little margin for error as they host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday. New Orleans saw its chances decrease with a four-game losing streak but rebounded with a 102-88 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Friday and now face the slumping Timberwolves. Minnesota lost 120-110 to Houston on Friday and has dropped nine of its last 11 games.
