Pelicans Offseason

The Pelicans’ Reckless, Fun, Terrifying Offseason



With a season opener under their belts, the Pelicans' have offered fans a glimpse into what to expect in the 2013-2014 season. NoDef's Pelicans Defender Kerem Ozkan explores the offseason  


Local Natives Overwhelm, Disappoint at Tip's: Concert Review


When did Local Natives' crowd get so bro-y? Squeezing past high heels and purple polos at a sold-out Tipitina's on Wednesday night felt a lot more like Tigerland than an indie rock show. Not to be a hater. Bros need good music too. It's worth taking this opportunity to consider what, exactly, is propelling Local Natives from Pitchfork-secret levels to The-O.C.-soundtrack territory.


Hornets Fatigued and Sloppy in 113-98 Loss to Denver


It’s not easy to walk into the Denver Nuggets’ Pepsi Center and get a win, and the Hornets certainly weren’t up to the task in yesterday’s 113-98 loss. New Orleans collapsed in the second half, looking sloppy and understandably fatigued amidst a tough road trip. With this fifth loss in six games, the boys fall to 15-32 for the season — once again dead last in the Western Conference.


Hornets Dethrone Kings


The Hornets’ lottery odds are looking significantly worse these days, as they left the Sacramento Kings in the dust Monday to cruise to a defiant 114-105 victory. Save for a late-game 17-0 Sacramento run, the Hornets dominated the entire game in every tangible way. New Orleans have won seven of their last nine games despite a tough schedule, improving to 14-27 for the season.


Hornets Lose to Warriors, 116-112


Like any good New Orleanian, your correspondent spent last night Krewe du Vieux-ing it up. While we were partying, the Hornets lost what was by all accounts a very winnable game to the Golden State Warriors, by a tally of 116-112. The Hornets dropped to 13-27 on the season.


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.


Rockets Dominate Inside, Beat Hornets 104-92


The Houston Rockets were a step quicker all night, scoring 60 points in the paint to cruise to a 104-92 victory. New Orleans is 7-25 for the season. James Harden became the latest wing player to go off on us, this time to the tune of 31 points and seven assists.


Hornets Bounce Back vs Bucks, 102-81


by Kerem Ozkan

Brilliant second-half play and excellent ball-shooting propelled the Hornets to a much-needed home victory over the Milwaukee Bucks last night. New Orleans led by only three at the half, but outscored the Bucks 49-31 in the second half to cruise to the finish line. The Hornets are now 5-11 for the season.


Nuggets Cruise Past Hornets, 102-84


by Kerem Ozkan

The Hornets’ losing-streak reached new lows Sunday as they fell to the Denver Nuggets, 102-84. New Orleans is 3-9 for the season after this seven-game losing-streak. The Nuggets led nearly the entire way, dominating in the paint with a heavy dose of layups and dunks. The Hornets looked competitive for a couple moments during the first half, but Denver proved to be in control, ramping up the intensity at will each time New Orleans drew close.


Knicks Cruise Past Hornets, 102-80


by Kerem Ozkan

The New York Knicks continued their early-season dominance against our Hornets tonight, dominating in a 102-80 victory. Anthony Davis sat out with a “stress reaction” in his left ankle. New Orleans is now 3-6 for the season; the Knicks, 8-1.
