  • Kiss my ass, COVID-19. It’s Pelicans Day

    This year has sucked. I don’t need to recap 2020 to make my point. You already know everything about it. I’m tired. You’re tired. We’re all tired. What I did not expect to happen in the middle of all this shit is actually meaningful professional sports games being able to take place. There are zero […]

  • Pelicans Dominate Battle of the Backups in 106-87 Victory over Nets

    For the first 5 1/2 minutes of today’s game in Brooklyn, the Pelicans looked worse than a D-League team. Their first 10 possessions consisted of seven missed shots (two of them blocked), five turnovers, and zero points scored. Their play was sloppy, uncoordinated, and quite frankly, even worse than most expected even considering the players on the floor. Then, […]

  • Game On: Pelicans @ Nets

    The Pelicans head to Brooklyn for a game that features only two players who would start for the majority of teams in this league, both of whom play for the opposing Nets (Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young). Both squads have fewer wins combined (49) than five other NBA teams. The Pelicans’ projected starting lineup of Toney Douglas, Jordan […]

  • Game On: Pelicans @ Warriors

    How do I want to start this preview off? Bear with me as I try a few different things here… The reeling New Orleans Pelicans take on the Association-best Golden State Warriors tonight in California? Losers of 7 of their last 8 games, the Pelicans take on the 30-0 at home, Warriors tonight in Oracle […]

  • Rockets Shoot 3 of 34 from Deep, Still Beat the Pelicans Anyway

    New Orleans Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry summed it up best with his post game quotes: “We come out after every game and say ‘well we’re in the playoff picture.’ No, we’re not. We’re not. What we are is a team that when we have an opportunity to do something, we didn’t get it done. So […]

  • Game On: New Orleans Pelicans @ Houston Rockets

    Hey everyone! Guess what day it is?! It’s Wednesday. Which means the New Orleans Pelicans are traveling to take on the Houston Rockets. The Rockets, currently in the 8th seed at 29-31, are five games ahead of the Pelicans in the standings. If the Pelicans want to make the playoffs over these last 24 games they […]

  • Pelicans Transformed by Wizards into Flightless Birds in 2nd Half of 109-89 Loss

    One game after Anthony Davis led New Orleans to victory in Detroit with a career high (and NBA season high) 59 points, Davis and the Pelicans crash landed in DC in a brutal loss to the Wizards. Despite a lackluster first half, New Orleans only trailed 54-51 at halftime thanks to similar struggles by Washington. In the 3rd quarter, however, […]

  • Game On: Pelicans @ Wizards

    Fresh off of the best performance of Anthony Davis’ young career, the Pelicans head to Washington DC to take on the Wizards. New Orleans got the best of Washington in the two team’s prior meeting this season, winning 107-105 at the Smoothie King Center. Of course, it also bears mentioning that the Pelicans rolled out a […]

  • Pelicans Visit Oklahoma City to Play Thunder in Midst of Heavy Hearts

    For those of you who came here looking to read about what the Pelicans need to do to win tonight, I apologize for not delivering that to you. But it’s just impossible for me to write about the basketball game that will be played in Oklahoma City tonight. Every time I start to research anything about […]

  • Pelicans Hang Tough but Falter Late in 112-111 Loss to Rockets

    Late in the second quarter, the Pelicans lost Anthony Davis to a head injury after taking an elbow from teammate Tyreke Evans. New Orleans entered halftime with a 60-58 edge, but soon found out that AD would not return, as his injury was ruled to be a concussion (surprisingly enough, this is not the first time […]

  • Pelicans Look to Continue Hot Streak at Home vs. Rockets

    Tonight, the red-hot (what?) New Orleans Pelicans host the Houston Rockets in an intra-division match-up with the season series tied at one game apiece. The Pelicans are playing some of their best basketball as of late, winning their past 3 games by a combined 48 points and winning 5 of their last 6 (only losing on the […]

  • Pelicans Outlast Hornets with Hard-Fought 109-107 Victory

    For two teams who have been struggling so mightily as of late, it would have been difficult to predict a game so fun and exciting. And yet, that kind of game is exactly what all who watched got to see tonight. Ryan Anderson and Kemba Walker exchanged 3 after 3. Anthony Davis and Nic Batum […]

  • Game On: Hornets @ Pelicans

    Tonight, the Pelicans host the Hornets (still sounds a little weird to say), an opponent who has experienced similar fortunes as themselves as of late. Both teams were able to snap long losing streaks on Wedneday night – New Orleans halted a 4-game skid in Sacramento, while Charlotte ended their string of 7 straight losses at home against […]

  • 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. […]

  • Pelicans Outscored by 10 in 4th Quarter, Fall 98-94 to Bulls

    For three quarters, the Pelicans looked like the better team in Chicago tonight. They didn’t play great offensively, but they were on the second night of a back-to-back against a very good defensive Bulls team. Their defense was solid, holding Chicago to 20-58 shooting from the field. Simply put, the Pels played well enough to win this […]

  • Game On: Pelicans at Bulls

    Fresh off of an entertaining 2-point win over the Wizards, New Orleans now will be further tested in Chicago against a tough Bulls team tonight. The Bulls enter tonight’s game 3rd in the NBA in defensive rating, but also have the league’s 3rd worst defensive rating. Scoring against this Chicago team won’t be easy, especially since he Pelicans are going […]

  • Monster Night from Davis Gives Pelicans 2nd Straight Win

    It’s official, y’all – Pelicans basketball is fun again. In a game that ended up being pretty close most of the way through, New Orleans protected their home court and held on to beat the Phoenix Suns 122-116. Anthony Davis led the way for the Pels, putting up a monster stat line of 32 points on 22 […]

  • Game On: Phoenix Suns @ New Orleans Pelicans

    Fresh off of their most impressive victory of the year (I know, there were a bunch to choose from), the Pelicans remain at home in the Blender for a match-up against the 7-5 Suns. Phoenix ranks in the top half of the league in both offensive and defensive rating, but they have made a living […]

  • Pelicans Battle Tremendously, but Fade Down the Stretch in 97-87 loss to Warriors

    If you are not extremely proud of this Pelicans team after watching the game tonight, then stop reading now, because you must be on the wrong team’s website. For 44 out of 48 minutes, this 45 win, 8th seed New Orleans team battled the 67 win, league-best Warriors to practically a draw (88-86). For the last four minutes, a lack of experience, […]

  • Game On: New Orleans Pelicans at Golden State Warriors, Game 2

    Two days after an inspiring comeback fell just a little short in the form of a 106-99 loss, the Pelicans return to Oracle Arena for Game 2 of their best-of-seven series against the Warriors. After a rough first quarter on Saturday, New Orleans shook their playoff jitters and played Golden State close to even in the […]
