Tough Loss

Pelicans run out of time in Game 1


Every time New Orleans dented Golden State's lead, the Warriors responded. Until the Pelicans ran out of time. Stephen Curry netted 19 of his 34 points in the first half and Golden State held off New Orleans 106-99 in Game 1 of their Western Conference quarterfinal.  Read more...
 

Deke: Spring in the books; is this LSU's year to climb back atop the SEC?


As he enters his 11th season as head coach of the LSU Tigers, Coach Les Miles looks like he has a really good team on his hands going into the 2015 schedule.  Sure the main and most important question is still at the QB spot.  But to me, the LSU Tigers look as balanced and sound as they have under Miles at this time of the year.

Deke: The Pelicans' time is coming, but maybe not against Warriors


Golden State is the better team.  How much better I'm not quite ready to predict that. Sure Golden State played by far the best overall basketball throughout the entire 82 game regular season.  But the Warriors are also facing a Pelicans team that is getting healthy and they are set on the floor with their prime time players for the first time, basically, this season. Read More

Steve: Pelicans will have a tough time against Warriors' firepower


The New Orleans Pelicans had 2 goals to start the season and accomplished both.  Finish with a winning record (45-37) and earn a spot in the postseason. Though some want to criticize what GM Dell Demps and Coach Monty Williams have done with the franchise; to me you can’t argue with success. Read More
