Pelicans' Comeback Rips Nets, 109-104 (OT)


by Will Winston

Down 22 with 10 minutes left in the third quarter, the New Orleans Pelicans seemed like they were toast. Not light, golden brown toast, but the kind of toast that’s been forgotten in the toaster for hours and crisps apart when you try to pick it up. Yet in the NBA, no lead is ever a safe lead, and at that moment the Pels proceeded to stage their second largest comeback in franchise history.


AD's Career High Lifts Pelicans in OT Thriller


by Will Winston

While some people are wishing for a little bit of luck on this St. Patrick’s weekend, Davis sure doesn’t need any. Two days after setting a career-high on Friday against Portland with 36 points, Anthony Davis upped himself again in Sunday night's 121-120 win against the Boston Celtics with two career-highs, 40 points and 21 rebounds (14-22 FG, 12-12 FT). 


Grizzlies Knock Off Pelicans on Conley Game Winner, 90-88


by Norris Ortolano

Hoping to feed off the momentum of Sunday night’s OT thriller over Denver, the New Orleans Pelicans remained in control for much of last night’s contest versus the Memphis Grizzlies before ultimately falling flat in the final minutes. The end result was a last second Mike Conley layup over Austin Rivers and a 90-88 victory for the visiting Grizzlies.


Pelicans Down Nuggets in OT, 111-107


by Christopher Louis Romaguera

Anthony Davis tied a career high with 32 points along with 17 rebounds and six blocks, as the New Orleans Pelicans (26-37, 15-14 home) beat the Denver Nuggets (27-35, 11-19 road) in overtime Sunday night at the Smoothie King Center, 111-107. 


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.


Clippers Surpass Pelicans, 123-110


by Will Winston

A day after knocking off the Western Conference’s best team in Oklahoma City, the Los Angeles Clippers did not let down against the Pelicans Monday night. The Clippers, led by former Hornet Chris Paul, scorched the Nola nets for 123 points to best the Pels, 123-110. The loss drops the home team to 23-33 on the season, and was their fourth straight loss.


Melo's 42 Leads Knicks Over Pelicans, 98-91


The New Orleans Pelicans returned from the NBA All-Star Break to find one of the players who dazzled the Smoothie King Center on Sunday continuing his tear. Unfortunately, it wasn't the home team's own All-Star selection, Anthony Davis. The New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony dropped 42 points on the Pels to lead the visitors to a 98-91 victory.


Pelicans Falter in Toronto, Lose 2nd Straight, 108-101


by Will Winston

After starting their three game, pre-All-Star road trip in woeful fashion against the Nets Sunday, the Pelicans carried the rust over to Toronto Monday night. Although the Pels fought in spurts, they failed to contain the Raptors, losing 108-101 at the Air Canada Centre.


Pierre the Pelican to Get a Beak-Lift


Pierre the Pelican could never be accused of lacking effort, but now he's apparently paid a price for trying to keep up with the big boys. The New Orleans Pelicans announced Monday that their mascot broke his beak during a pickup game. The injury requires surgery that will doubtless leave his face permanently altered.


Pelicans Fall To Nets After Abysmal First Half, 93-81


by Mark Seither

The New Orleans Pelicans were held to a season-low 28 points in the first half of Sunday night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets, and the team took more than four and a half minutes to record their first points of the contest. The awful first half coupled with a huge night from Brooklyn rookie forward Mason Plumlee proved to be too much to overcome for the visiting Anthony Davis and krewe.
