Tim Frazier’s Impact Performance Leads to Big Pelicans Victory

On Wednesday night, the Pelicans took on a struggling Washington Wizards team at the Smoothie King Center.  After a four-game losing streak, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry was looking to make a change that would spark his team. With injured point guard Elfrid Payton out until January, Gentry inserted former Wizard Tim Frazier into the starting lineup.

Despite the Wizards recent struggles, they had been one of the teams that had contributed to the Pelicans losing streak. An Anthony Davis-less Pelicans team traveled to Washington on November 24th and got handed a 124-114 loss.  On Wednesday night, the Pelicans were determined to come out fast. That’s exactly what they did as they took an early lead versus the Wizards and never

Elfrid Payton Continues to Prove That He Is A Worthy Replacement of Rajon Rondo

The New Orleans Pelicans lost two major contributors to free agency this offseason: DeMarcus Cousin and Rajon Rondo. The average NBA fan saw Cousins as the bigger loss. To those who followed the Pelicans closely, it was clear that Rondo would be missed more.

While Cousins was an All-Star as recently as last season. However, he clogged up the floor on offense and the Pelicans clearly played better after his season-ending injury. Rondo, on the other hand, was the team’s floor general and played tenacious defense. The Pelicans playoff run last year highlighted Rondo’s skills as many of his teammates credited him for their success.

These reasons are why a feeling of dread crept into the hearts of Pelicans fans

Pelicans Break Franchise Record for Single Game Points Behind Mirotic’s 36

The Smoothie King Center was back in action on Friday night as a sell-out crowd packed the arena for the New Orleans Pelicans 2018-19 home opener.

The Pels fans who turned out would not be disappointed.

 

After an impressive win in Houston on Wednesday, the Pelicans came into Friday nights’ game against the Sacramento Kings as 11 point favorites and were hoping to start the season 2-0 for the first time since 2011.

Kevin Durant Leads Warriors to Important Game 4 Win Over Pelicans

Before the Pelicans played the Warriors in Game 4 of the 2018 Western Conference Semifinals, Pelicans’ Head Coach Alvin Gentry commented on how important he thought the 1st Quarter would be to the Pelicans success. Gentry said, “you have to be able to score the ball against these guys ‘cause they’re going to score it. If you’re struggling, offensively, then that just puts added pressure on your defense. You have to be able to try to come up with baskets, just to alleviate some of the pressure that you have dealing with their offense.” The offense is where the problems would begin for New Orleans on Saturday afternoon.

The Pelicans looked sloppy early-on much like they had in Game 3

Pelicans Silence Questioners with Impressive Win Over Defending Champions

The Pelicans were sick and tired of being asked about their 2014-15 season’s first round exit to the eventual champion Golden State Warriors. Until this season, it had been the first and only playoff appearance for the Pelicans in the Anthony Davis era. It had also been an extremely quick exit as the Pelicans were swept by the Warriors. The most crushing loss of that series came in overtime of Game 3 after the Pelicans had held a 20 point lead heading into the 4th quarter. Despite their irritation, the Pelicans could not escape questions about that series that they so greatly wished to forget.

The first wave of questions came when the Pelicans made the Playoffs this season. It
