  • Pelicans Crumble Under the Heat

    Jrue Holiday is a good player and a tough competitor, but burdened with the ultimate green light he struggled mightily. As a number one option a lot of his shots looked forced tonight, and it showed in the stat sheet and on the scoreboard: 7/23 shooting and a loss by 14. He got it going […]

  • Game On: Pelicans Host the Heat

    While it seems the plug has been pulled on the season, there are still 13 games left to play and tonight the New Orleans Pelicans host the 40-29 Miami Heat. The previous matchup was one of the ugliest games ever witnessed on Christmas Day, and it somehow went to overtime. Forcing people to watch more […]

  • Pelicans force OT but come up short in sloppy game with 94-88 Loss

    I really hate to start a post about an overtime loss so negatively, but outside of Anthony Davis, I’m really running out of good things to say about this Pelicans team. The first half today was a total joke outside of AD; it’s a miracle that the team was only down by 4 at halftime. […]

  • New Orleans Pelicans Try to Save Christmas

    The New Orleans Pelicans (9-19) are spending Christmas morning in Miami playing the Miami Heat (16-11). This is the first night in a back-to-back for the Pelicans, who play the Rockets tomorrow back in New Orleans. The game tips just after 11 am CT (UTC -6) and is on ESPN and the Pelicans Radio Network, […]

  • Pelicans Squeak Out a Win Against the Heat in Preseason Finale

    Anthony Davis and Eric Gordon combined for 47 points and the Pelicans beat the Miami Heat 93-90 in their last preseaon game on Ochsner’s Breast Cancer Awareness Night at the Smoothie King Center. In a game that saw a lot of starters see a lot of minutes, the short-handed Pels managed to hold on to […]

  • Pelicans Play the Heat in Final Preseason Game

    In the final warmup for the regular season the Pelicans play the Miami Heat tonight at the Smoothie King Center, tip off for 7pm CT. Tonight is all about one thing: get through the ******* game without injuries. The Pels have had the luck of Marsellus Wallace, who, while out shopping for donuts, just happened […]

  • Breaking Down Omer Asik’s Defensive Game Winners

    Earlier in the season I broke down the game winning shot Tyreke Evans had against the Toronto Raptors. Last week Omer Asik decided he wanted to win the Pelicans a game against the Raptors as well. Except this time he did it on the defensive end. Asik wasn’t content with just one game winning defensive […]

  • Anatomy of a Win (And Watching a Winner Being Built.)

    When the Miami Heat vs. the New Orleans Pelicans was picked to be the ESPN game, I doubt they had yesterday’s game in mind. Anthony Davis and Chris Bosh both being out, and with Dwyane Wade going 4-16 from the field. This all of a sudden didn’t look like a game “where amazing happens.” But […]

  • Pels Come from Behind to Win 4th Straight in Amazing Team Win

    New Orleans fought back from a 10-point deficit in the 4th quarter to tie their longest winning streak of the season (4). The Pelicans stretched their wings in the 4th quarter and let the gusts building from the fans’ chants carry them to a fantastic team win.   Alexis Ajinca was the man of the match, […]

  • Game On: Pelicans Host The Heat

    The New Orleans Pelicans host the Miami Heat tonight in the Smoothie King Center at 7 CT.  Miami clings to the 7th spot in the East with 5 teams all within 2 & 1/2 games of the 25-31 Heat.  They hope recent additions of Goran Dragic and Michael Beasley can keep their playoff hopes afloat […]

  • Cole Blooded

    Norris Cole’s is a known/unknown commodity. When you hear the name, you immediately think: two titles his first two years, three visits to the NBA Finals in his first three years. Competitor. Defensive specialist. Then there are this year’s stats: 6.3 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 3.5 apg, 38.6 FG%, and 26.5% 3P%. There is also this. […]

  • Game On: Pelicans @ Heat

    The Pelicans, in the next few years, want to enter the conversation for best team in the league.  Tonight, even without Ryan Anderson is a measuring stick game.  The Pelicans will not get the best Miami Heat, even if they are unlucky and get a fully stocked Miami Heat.   Miami cruises a little against weaker  teams, and […]

  • Preview: Miami Heat at New Orleans Pelicans

    It’s the first game day of many for New Orleans Pelicans fans, and even though it’s preseason you can expect a big and excited crowd looking for the first W on our home floor. LeBron James and the Miami heat appear to be adequate competition, especially after emerging the frontrunners for MVP and NBA champions […]

  • Spurring Some Heated Discussion

    With the 2013 NBA Finals on our temporal doorsteps, with the present and past colliding like fists two Chuck Norris fists, with silent power and grace slamming into furious flash, with the Obi-Wan battling the Anakin, of course all I can think about is the New Orleans Pelicans. All Pelicans, all the time . . […]

  • Game On: Heat @ Hornets

    The Hornets set out to give the Heat their first losing streak since the Heat dropped two consecutive games on January 8th and 10th to Indiana and Portland respectively. Chicago ended the Heat’s 27-game winning streak on Wednesday, playing a physical style of basketball that frustrated King James and the Heat. The Bulls outrebounded Miami […]

  • Hornets Lose to Heat by 16 After Poor Second Quarter

    The New Orleans Hornets fall to 5-14, 1-3 on the week, after a 16 point loss to Miami after being outscored by 18 in the second quarter. The Hornets managed to keep the Heat from taking advantage of poor three point defense, but the Hornets also failed to take advantage of the same weakness of […]

  • Game On: Hornets Visit the Heat

    Game On Henry

    The short-handed New Orleans Hornets perhaps find themselves ready to take advantage suddenly struggling Heat, who are on their first losing streak of the season (2 games). This is by no means claiming that the Hornets are favored, but the gap between the Gordon+Davis-less Hornets and the team hosting them on the border of Biscayne […]

  • Scouting the NBA: Week Six — Lakers and Heat, Oh No…

    Hugo Laying Cutely on the Court

    The New Orleans Hornets will face a slew of tough games this week starting with the reeling Los Angeles Lakers. They will then play Memphis at home, then Miami away. By the end of the week it will be December 11 and talk of Anthony Davis will start to heat up. Regardless of the outcome […]

  • Hornets Beat the pre-Heat, Confusion Remains

    A victory in Miami is nice, but what does this game tell us other than we know nothing?

  • Game On: Hornets @ Heat

    The Hornets travel to Miami to face off against the Heat tonight at 7 PM central time on ESPN2 in their final preseason tune-up.
