The New Orleans Pelicans play in one of the most scenic cities in the nation and are finally turning heads in the “CRESCENT CITY.”
Make no mistake fans in “SPORTSMAN’S PARADISE” are still licking their wounds after their beloved Saints lost to the Minnesota Vikings on the last play in the 2018 divisional round.
In the 2016-17 season General Manager Dell Demps took a chance and acquired multi-talented but disgruntled Center DeMarcus Cousins from the Sacramento Kings.
Many thought it would bring instant gratification and take the team to the next level, but that scenario didn’t happen.
The Pelicans missed the playoffs in the 2017 season, and the buzz surrounding Cousins intensified.
Cousins is one of five players from the University of Kentucky on the current Pelicans roster. The others are Anthony Davis, Rajon Rondo, Darius Miller, and DeAndre Liggins.
Head Coach Alvin Gentry is in this third season on the bench in New Orleans after a stint in Phoenix where he underachieved.
This Sports Handicapper has never understood why a guy like Gentry seems to keep getting head coaching jobs; the North Carolina native does, however, recognizes the “X AND O’S” of the game.
Gentry got his first head job with the Miami Heat back in 1995. The Detroit Pistons took a chance on him and lasted for three seasons, and then the Los Angeles Clippers organization rolled the dice of Gentry.
Well, things seem to go his way at the present moment, an overtime road win over Boston shows the entire league how much talent the Pelicans have on the roster.
The question is can they keep rolling or will do what is expected, and that is beginning to go in the tank.
As of Wednesday, January 17, 2018. New Orleans is three games over .500, winning their last three both straight up and to the number.
The Pelicans are behind Houston and San Antonio in the Southwest division.
New Orleans is an exciting team moving forward in the 2018 season.
The team ranks near the top of the league scoring the basketball, but they must concentrate on defense to become an elite team.
At present, the Pelicans allow opponents 111.1 points per game, twenty-ninth in the “ASSOCIATION.”
Post players Anthony Davis, and DeMarcus Cousins both average over twenty-five points per contest scoring the basketball.
Point Guard Jrue Holiday is the understudy to Rajon Rondo who will be a crucial part if they want to get into the 2018 NBA Playoffs.
Former Memphis Grizzlies standout and defensive specialist Tony Allen must to his imprint on the team in the second half of the season if they want to avoid the NBA draft lottery.
All said the New Orleans Pelicans have everything going their way and if they keep playing at their current level, this team could be the surprise team in the 2018 postseason.
