    Game On: Pacers @ Pelicans

    The Pacers are one of those teams that don’t get any respect.  If you look at their line-up, only Paul George strikes you as an above average player.  (and yes, he’s...

    The Pels want transition defense – are they getting it?

    Gentry – and his coaching tree – are big proponents of transition offense.  You heard all about pace in the off-season, and the general reason for that is transition attempts are...

    In the NO Podcast Ep 239: Middle of the Road?

    Signs are pointing towards the team getting back to being a middle of the pack sort of squad. Jason Calmes and I talk about whether that is real or fake –...

    Pelicans play three quarters of basketball

    Even when things should be going well for these guys, things don’t.  They came out with energy and good defense in the first half.  They executed plays and got rolling to...

  • Game On Home 5

    Game On: Clippers @ Pelicans

    Quietly, the Pelicans have been playing (essentially) .500 ball since that horrendeous 1-11 start.  Which, truth to be told, isn’t that far off of what they played last year for the...

    In the NO Podcast Ep. 238: Two and Two and a goodbye

    Michael and I recap a week in which the Pelicans have some crazy highs and lows – and actually get to play their preferred five for a few minutes. Yay. Then...

    Pelicans finishing five take down Denver

    I wanted to bring some attention to the line-up on the floor at the end of this game.  It was the finishing five we talked about being so good last year...

    Game On: Pelicans @ Denver

    So now it’s time for us to adjust our thinking.  The initial thought is “Denver’s not a good team, we should totally beat them!” That’s not the case.  Records aside –...

    In the NO Podcast Ep. 237: Is it time for the Tank?

    In a lot of respects the Boston loss (and its aftermath) crystalized just how bad this team has been over the course of the season for many fans. So Michael and...

    In the NO Podcast Ep. 236: Mini Pod

    Michael and I rip of a smallish podcast for you – since my inability to record properly destroyed the longer one we put together. Bleh. Anyways – we talk Asik return,...

    Pelicans work hard to cause bitterness

    The Pelicans needed to tread water through the tough part of this schedule.  They aren’t.  Instead, they are tying lead weights to their feet, just to see what happens. Tonight, they...

    Game On: Disappointment Bowl

    Come one, come all, to watch the most disappointing teams in the west!  The Rockets, pre-season Title Contenders, face off against the Pelicans, expectant 50-win Juggernaut! Or maybe it’s a team with...

    In the NO Ep 235: Terrible on the Road

    Michael and I continue to be flummoxed by some of the trends for this team – including just how bad they are on the road. We also play “what is more...

    Pelicans down Suns

    The Pelicans handled that game with poise, absorbing the haymaker Brandon Knight threw in the first quarter and then working the Suns deliberately for the rest of the game.  Despite the...

    Game On: Pelicans @ Suns

    In the last game between these two teams, Gentry played Chandler straight up with Asik, and since Chandler was winning that battle in general, switched it up and went small.  The...

    In the NO Ep 234: Look! Wins!

    Michael and I are agog over the two wins. When there are so few of them, they become just so, so precious. We talk Anthony Davis’ sudden surge in energy, Ish...

    I know they lost, but I enjoyed that game.  Every Pelican available played, and every Pelican left everything they could on the floor.  Had the Pelicans shot a little closer to their...

    Alright, I have good news and bad news.  The bad news is the Pelicans play again tonight.  Against the Thunder.  In OKC.  And Anthony Davis’ status is unknown.  And Cole, Evans,...

    There is no space as the Pelicans lose to Knicks

    Usually when writers talk about “space” in basketball – they are simply referring to shooting.  Put some shooters around the perimeter, and viola, teams have to guard them, there is room...
