The New Orleans Pelicans finished their 2013-14 campaign with a 34-48 record good for 12th in the NBA Western Conference. The Pelicans add Omer Asik to an already very good lineup. Anthony Davis is well on his way to superstardom, but the big issue for Monty Williams' Pelicans will be health. If this club could just stay healthy they have the talent to reach the playoffs. Here are five games that stand out in 2014-15 for the Pelicans.
The Pelicans play Dallas and San Antonio as well as the Memphis Grizzlies this week, and there are plenty of really interesting matchups in this contest. The Pelicans' Anthony Davis and Omer Asik and the Grizzlies' Marc Gasol and Zack Randolph should be a classic battle as should the battle between the Grizzlies' Mike Conley and the Pelicans' Jrue Holiday. This game is must-see TV.
This should be a fun Tuesday night contest when the Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant led Oklahoma City Thunder come into town to face the Pelicans. Last season teams shot 35 percent from beyond the arc against the Thunder, so a healthy Ryan Anderson should be a factor in this one.
Its always fun to watch the young stars take the court, and when the Golden State Warriors come to town for a Sunday evening game with the Pelicans, young stars will be everywhere. The inside game of Omer Asik and Anthony Davis against the outside game of the “Splash Brothers” Klay Thompson and Steph Curry will make for a fun Sunday!
This should be a good late season Southwest Division battle as the Pelicans head to American Airlines Center to take on Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks. Dallas brought back former Defensive Player of the Year Tyson Chandler, but will he be enough to thwart Anthony Davis? Tune in on Mar. 2 to find out.
This should be an interesting Southwest Division matchup with possible seeding implications when Anthony Davis and Co. travel to Houston to take on the Houston Rockets. It will be fun to see if Anthony Davis and Omer Asik can take it to “The Beard” and “The Weird” aka James Harden and Dwight Howard.
