The New Orleans Pelicans pulled off an improbable and intensely entertaining 115-100 beatdown of the Atlanta Hawks Monday night at the Smoothie King Center.
Atlanta, who had come into the game on a 19-game winning streak (the 5th-longest in NBA history), seemed out of sorts from the midpoint of the first quarter, missing easy shots and struggling to contain an energized Pelicans team.
Up in Pennsylvania, Punxsutawney Phil may have seen his shadow, sending shivers down many a meteorologist’s spine and presaging six more weeks of winter — but here in New Orleans we have more, er, refined methods of predicting the weather.
New Orleans is a city of desperate violence, but those neighborhoods most plagued by a wanton disregard for life — parts of Central City, say, or New Orleans East — seem a world away from the neon and wrought iron of the French Quarter.
However, a near-daily litany of burglaries, batteries and robberies filling the police blotter now has many French Quarter locals scared, and they are sharing that fear with visitors.
The Krewe of 'tit Rǝx — the Mardi Gras "microkrewe" made up of tiny, shoebox-sized floats — will roll through the Marigny on Feb. 7.
Pronounced TEET-Rex (as in "petite," the French word for "small"), the krewe will reprise their 2014 route, beginning at 5 p.m. behind the St. Roch Market on St. Claude Ave., then proceeding through the streets of the Marigny before arriving at the Allways Lounge for the organization's annual Ping Pong Ball.
The New Orleans Pelicans unveiled a new ad campaign on Tuesday, riffing on the hilarious, iconic Frankie & Johnny’s “Special Man” commercials from the 1980s.
The commercial — starring Ryan Anderson, Tyreke Evans, and Anthony Davis — is promoting a new three-game discounted ticket plan. Fans can purchase three-game packages of tickets to any game for $24 a seat.
Davis fills the role of the eponymous, cigar-smoking Special Man, originally played by Lester Love, Sr., a salesman at the furniture store who passed away in 2001.
Anthony Davis, the third-year phenom making his way to his second All-Star Game, scored 32 points and collected 10 rebounds, leading the New Orleans Pelicans in a 99-74 thrashing of the Philadelphia 76ers at the Smoothie King Center.
It was the twelfth time this season Davis had scored at least 30 points in a game, and was his 26th double-double of 2014-15.
The New Orleans Pelicans have completed a three-team trade that has been in the works all this weekend, sending Austin Rivers to the Boston Celtics and Russ Smith to the Memphis Grizzlies.
In return, New Orleans has received forward Quincy Pondexter and a future second-round draft pick from the Grizzlies.
Pondexter started his career in New Orleans, appearing in 66 games during the 2010-11 season. That year the then-Hornets went 46-36 and made the playoffs, but were eliminated in the first round in six games by the Los Angeles Lakers.
