From last night's Monty Williams radio show Sean Kelley asks about the teams recent improvement and how there now seems to be a belief that they can win.
[quote]Monty: I think they've always felt that way but didn't know how. When you look at the make up of our team, nobody on our team of the core...

[quote] David Fisher @usnfish 15 hours ago
Tyreke Evans is shooting better than Russell Westbrook this season...

2: Behind the 3-Point Line
More of an interesting stat than an undeniable truth, but:
Tyreke 46.7% on 2s, 28.9% on 3s
Westbrook 46.5% an...

| Pelicans Talk|| Ajinca and rebounding - TigerinATL on 3/2/15 at 7:43 am|
This is one thing that has puzzled me since last year about Ajinca's game. The stats say he is a very good rebounder, 12 per 36 and 18.9% TRB%. Not as good as Asik's 13.7 and 21.6%, but still very good individual rebounding stats. He's also a big guy that takes up a lot of space with his long arm...

[quote]There is little question New Orleans’ success begins and ends with the play of AD. Obvious proclamations aside, no man is an island and beside Batman is — or at least should be — a very capable Robin.

| Pelicans Talk|| Ryan Anderson, Backup Center - TigerinATL on 2/26/15 at 2:11 pm|
Why are so many down on Anderson this year? Some of it is the less reliable than usual 3 point shot, but most of it is his horrible defense. Why does his defense seem so much worse this year? 2 years ago Robin Lopez was the big he played the most minutes with by a large margin. Last year he misse...

Spurs went down to the Jazz. They still have a 5 game lead on us, but they've lost 3 in a row and are 5-5 in their last 10.
Suns lost to the Celtics. At least if we lose the pick it will probably be #14....

| Pelicans Talk|| Why couldn't Demps do what Presti did? - TigerinATL on 2/19/15 at 7:31 pm|
Rick Adelman is why.
If that Minnesota pick is as high as it was expected to be, we draft Damian Lillard instead of Austin Rivers. No need to trade for Holiday and we are now following the OKC model. But Rick Adelman is a good coach and totally screwed the Pelicans.
OKC started out the seas...
