If the New Orleans Pelicans had anticipated making franchise history heading into the fourth quarter on Thursday night, this wasn’t the record they expected. The Pelicans trailed 100-67 to the Houston Rockets after three frames, the largest deficit in that situation in the team’s history. After Thursday’s loss — the final score was a 129-99 Rockets win — we can pretty clearly determine two things.

Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley (groin) will play Thursday versus the New Orleans Pelicans, head coach Mike D'Antoni confirmed. What It Means: Beverley missed the final game before the break, but after a full practice on Tuesday, he should be good to go for Thursday's matchup with the Pelicans and their new frontcourt duo of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. Beverley is tied for fourth on the Rockets and 74th in the NBA with a 2.0 nERD this season. He's averaging 9.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.7 3-pointers in 30.5 minutes per...

John Calipari (1) said Monday morning on the SEC teleconference that it’s “not happening.” He’s not going to the New Orleans Pelicans to be reunited with two star big men he coached at Kentucky, Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. There may not be anything else to be said on the subject – he’s rich and powerful and recruiting like a sultan and coaching his kid at Kentucky right now. Current Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry is 11 games below .500 this year, 33 games below .500 in his Pelicans tenure and 68 games below .500 in his NBA coaching career – he’s not exactly cemented...

Toronto Raptors Could Be A Threat To Cleveland Cavaliers

With the NBA trade deadline recently passed, the biggest news of the 2017 trade deadline cycle was easily the New Orleans Pelicans acquiring the services of big man DeMarcus Cousins. Surely, with the New Orleans Pelicans acquiring DeMarcus Cousins to pair with established All-Star and fellow franchise player Anthony Davis, New Orleans has certainly positioned themselves for future success. That said, however, while most headlines focus on the big name, blockbuster trades, sometimes it’s the minor tweak to any given roster that can make the biggest difference — and that is precisely the...

Durant on Cousins, Davis pairing: ‘It could be legendary’

Kevin Durant has long been a sort of basketball historian, cuing up highlights of Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson and Michael Jordan in his free time. New Orleans’ new frontcourt duo of DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis, Durant reckons, could someday be mentioned with the all-time greats. By pairing another elite big man with Davis, New Orleans became nationally relevant and, to many, a favorite for the Western Conference’s eighth seed. Though many are predicting a Golden State-New Orleans first round matchup, the Pelicans could have a tough time securing the eighth seed. Five of...

Following trade for DeMarcus Cousins, pressure now sits squarely on Alvin Gentry to win

Dell Demps just likely made the season’s biggest splash before the deadline so no more excuses. Thursday night will be arguably the most anticipated Pelicans game since the 2015 season finale against the Spurs where a win meant clinching a playoff berth. Few teams have had a better All-Star break than New Orleans. The city hosted All-Star Weekend, Anthony Davis represented New Orleans well, winning the big game’s MVP award by scoring a record-breaking 52 points in the process, and Dell Demps rocked the NBA world by acquiring DeMarcus Cousins from the Sacramento Kings. For New Orleans,...

Pelicans begin Cousins era by hosting Rockets

NEW ORLEANS -- When New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis broke Wilt Chamberlain's 55-year All-Star Game scoring record Sunday night with 52 points in the West's 192-182 no-defense-allowed victory over the East, he was smiling so broadly he said he would keep the MVP trophy in his home rather than give it to his mother for safe keeping.
