Eric Gordon, Chevron Full STEM Ahead at NBA All-Star Game


As they gear up for Sunday's showcase at the Stadium Formerly Known as the New Orleans Arena, the NBA is taking some time for their fans of all sizes. Pelicans' shooting guard Eric Gordon was inside the Convention Center signing basketballs, and helping to distribute items to help promote engineering to kids. NoDef talked to Gordon about the weekend and New Orleans.


Anthony Davis Named NBA All-Star


Anthony Davis will be an All-Star, after all. The second-year sensation was named to the NBA's Western Conference All-Star squad Friday in place of the injured Kobe Bryant. The selection gives A.D. an opportuniy to play in his first all-star game at home in the Stadium Formerly Known as New Orleans Arena on Sun., Feb. 15.


New Orleans Arena Renamed Smoothie King Center


A year after the Superdome's luxury upgrade, New Orleans Arena dove into the naming rights blender for an infusion. The home of the Pelicans is set to emerge as Smoothie King Center, Pelicans owner Tom Benson and Smoothie King announced Thursday.


Spurs Rally, Predictably, for 105-98 Win Over Pelicans


The days when a 12-point lead to begin the fourth quarter against the Spurs inspired optimism and team spirit are gone. Instead, I find mysely skeptical and apathetic as we positioned ourselves to win. Surely the defense will collapse — and do we really want to win anyway? To no one’s surprise, the Spurs scored 38 points in the 4th to rally to a 102-95 win behind Tony Parker’s 32 points & nine assists.


Pelicans Corral Bulls, 88-79


by Mark Seither 

The Pelicans suddenly learned to play defense on Saturday night in New Orleans. The 79 points that the Bulls scored is the lowest total the Pelicans have held an opponent to all season. It also is the first time they have won without scoring more than 95 points. The Pelicans defense was stout throughout the game and proved to be the difference on a night when offense was hard to come by.


Davis Stars in Pelicans' 2nd Straight Win


by Christopher Louis Romaguera

A few days before the complete All-Star rosters are set to be announced, Anthony Davis added an exclamation point to his resume Sunday with a stellar performance that paced the New Orleans Pelicans to a 100-92 win over the Orlando Magic. Davis had 22 points, 19 rebounds and seven blocks, as he seemed to make every highlight play in the game while leading the Pelicans to their second straight win. With the W, the Pelicans improve to 18-25, (10-11 at home) while the Magic drop to 12-33.


Spurs Deal Pelicans Sixth Straight Loss, 101-95


by Mark Seither

The Pelicans fought hard and gave the Spurs everything they could handle on Monday night in the New Orleans Arena, but three costly turnovers in the final minutes proved fatal to their comeback hopes. New Orleans just didn’t have an answer for Tony Parker in the fourth quarter. Parker led all scorers with 27 points and seven rebounds and hit some big layups to hold the Pelicans at bay.

 


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.


Pelicans' Tyreke Evans Out 1-2 Weeks with Injury


Pelicans fans who saw Tyreke Evans go down during Friday night’s loss to Oklahoma City will be happy to hear the injury is merely a mild sprain, as things looked much worse at first glance. Watch at your own risk.


Arena Bans Big Bags for Pelicans Games


Saints fans have already been forced to travel light on trips to the Superdome this year, and the same will be true for roundball devotees flocking to the nest. Effective for tonight's New Orleans Pelicans home game against the Dallas Mavericks, backpacks and other large bags will be prohibited at New Orleans Arena.
