I'm glad to see the Pelicans get off to a good start. Beating the Spurs on the road was a statement game. The Pelicans are for real and can compete with the best teams in the league.

Another Big Win for the Pelicans

How about those Pelicans! They just ended the Hawks' 19 game winning streak.

They looked very good last night and they have mostly played well recently. Still, only three games ago they lost at home to the Nuggets and their road record for the season is not good.

Probably make the playoffs, but I'm not sure I'd crow about them too loudly yet.

I'm not guaranteeing a Championship however I think they will be in the playoffs. Anthony Davis is a great talent. As a team the Pelicans are solid in all aspects of the game. The Pelicans are especially tough to beat at home. I agree they'll have to be more consistent in road games yet they are certainly a team on the rise.

I enjoyed watching the Pelicans in the first round of the playoffs. I like an underdog. A. Davis has some good talent around him and they play with a lot of effort.

I think the story of game 1 vs. the Warriors is the free throw difference between the two teams. The Pelicans hung in there until the 2nd quarter but couldn't overcome the free throw disparity. The final free throw stats:

Warriors 32 free throws
Pelicans 11 free throws
