    Observations on Kings v Pelicans

    Tonight you saw the true impact of Eric Gordon being out of the game.  Now, before you get all excited and say things like “Have you seen Gordon play this year?”...

    Game On: Kings @ Pelicans

    First, if you haven’t listened to On the Fly, you should.  Jake and Pelli talk with Aaron Bruski about the Kings and how the Pelicans matchup.  However, if you aren’t going...

    Observations: Pelicans @ Blazers

    For the second time this season, the Pelicans held all the cards through the first three quarters – and then sputtered in the fourth and lost the game.  Really – the...

    Game On: Pelicans @ Trailblazers

    I’m hoping Aldridge shows up for this game since he’s listed Day to Day.  While that would make the game somewhat more difficult than otherwise, I currently have two Pelican plays...

    Observations on Pelicans v Lakers

    109-102 is the final score.  Looked at without context, that’s probably a bit disappointing.  The Pelicans are trying to be hot stuff, and the Lakers are simply an incubator for lots...

    Pelicans v Wizards observations

    Once again the Pelicans rolled against a team without all of its big guns, as Pierce and John Wall both sat out the game, leaving Gortat and Nene to hold the...

    Pelicans lose to Spurs by 2. Dangit.

    The Pelicans failed to capitalize on their strength advantage as the Spurs – a lousy rebounding team, controlled the boards and edged out a two point win.  My observations: Russ wasn’t...

    Pelicans go small, can’t handle Suns

    Down three and under a minute to go, I certainly wouldn’t have drawn up a pull-up three pointer from Tyreke Evans tonight.  Of course, neither did Monty as the Pelicans had...

  • Game On Home 5

    Game On: Phoenix @ Pelicans

    Five games left.  Suns, Rockets, Thunder, Rockets, Thunder.  Yikes. Tonight they get, by record, the easiest of those three opponents, but I’m not sure that’s really an accurate statement.  Those other...

    Blazers do enough to beat the Pelicans

    For a stretch in the fourth, LaMarcus Aldridge seemed like he could hit everything – and I kept sighing and shaking my head, feeling like he was doing it just because...

  • Game On Away 6

    Game On: Pelicans @ Trailblazers

    At this point in the season, I’m just hoping the Marquee matchup of this game actually shows up to play.  Nothing is more fun than Aldridge vs Davis as two lanky,...

    Pelicans out-worked by Kings

    I could waste time complaining about the same things we always complain about.  It’s getting a bit old, however, and why dwell on why certain guys are getting minutes?  Instead, let’s...

    Game On: Kings @ Pelicans

    The Pelicans wrap up the season series against the Kings at home tonight and catch the Kings on a bit of a downswing.   The Kings are missing one of their trio...

    Pelicans role players down Clippers

    This is one of those games that just leaves you scratching your head.  No Holiday, Gordon, Anderson, Smith, Rivers, or Roberts.  Darius Miller played long stretches of the game as a...

    Game On: Clippers @ Pelicans

    Sometimes you get lucky in this league and you catch a real good team on a downswing or when it has a significant injury.  That time is not now for the...

  • Game On Home 2

    Game on: Heat @ Pelicans

    Both teams are playing back to backs, with Miami coming off a tough, grind-it-out win in Memphis.  The Heat have actually been fairly poor on the road (by their standards) this...

    Game On: Blazers @ Pelicans

    Tonight the Pelicans catch a break. (and for once, not the bone or back or tendon type) After a scorching start to the season, the Trailblazers have fallen back to earth,...

    The Pelicans beat the Bucks

    When the season starts winding to an end, offensive efficiency improves across the board as teams fall out of the race and stop playing hard defensively.  Though there were definite spurts...

    Game On: Bucks @ Pelicans

    This is one of those games that you feel entitled to a win.  The Bucks are the most lowly team in the league, and even with the roster limited by injuries,...

    Pelicans are Foul in loss

    It’s not like they had a monopoly on the fouls.  The Kings managed to contribute a huge number themselves to a choppy game with no visual flow and multiple calls made...
