Davis Injured in Pelicans' 108-89 Loss to Mavs


by Will Winston

Coaches like to preach the little things in deciding the outcome of basketball games. Little things can refer to a number of things that aren’t exactly gaudy, but on Wednesday night the game came down to turnovers and free throws. The New Orleans Pelicans set a record they didn’t want to this season: 21 turnovers.


Pelicans Buried by Sharp-Shooting Mavs, 107-90


by Mark Seither

The Pelicans failed to reach 100 points Friday night in the New Orleans Arena, so there were no French fries for the fans in attendance. There was also no victory for the fourth game in a row as the injury-riddled Pels fell to the Dallas Mavericks, 107-90.


Today in New Orleans: 1.10.14


New Orleans takes off into the weekend with new plays, old battles and, as ever, Camel Toe. On this day in New Orleans history, federal troops ended the Slave Revolt of 1811. The heads of the African Americans killed were displayed on the poles of the Place D'Armes (Jackson Square). Now for more about today:


Hornets Era Ends With 99-87 Loss To Mavs


by Norris Ortolano

Branded the New Orleans Hornets for one final game, the team had a chance to make a statement leading into the era of the Pelicans. They didn’t. Instead, the Hornets ended their season with a record of 27 - 55, fifth worst in the league. With a team already loaded with youth, hopefully this record will be viewed in a positive light come draft time when the Pelicans draft the next game-changer who will lead us to a playoff birth in 2014.  


New Orleans Listless in Last Home Game as Hornets


In New Orleans’ 2012-13 home finale — and last appearance ever at the Arena as “Hornets” — our boys appropriately served as spectators, as the Dallas Mavericks cruised to a 107-89 victory. The highlight of the season’s final home game was Dirk Nowitzki, as he became only the 17th player to reach 25,000 career points. The loss dropped New Orleans to 27-54, making it all the more likely New Orleans will hold the league’s fifth-worst record — good for the fifth-best position in the draft lottery.


Hornets Hang On For OT Win Against Mavericks


The Mavericks might have thought giving Dirk Nowitzki his first start of the season at home against the Hornets would provide an easy confidence boost. New Orleans had other plans. The Bees escaped in overtime, winning 99-96 in what was arguably our best victory since Dec. 3 against the Clippers.
