HoopsHype New Orleans Pelicans twitter
It's red-out for the home opener. Fans wearing red t-shirts. Pelicans wearing red uniforms.
Pels should be able to take control of game. A much bigger test is ahead with upcoming games against Mavs,Grizzlies, Hornets, Spurs, Cavs
Ahh League Pass music... How I've missed you.. We're close people.
Also interested in seeing how Coach Monty Williams uses his bench. How will he divide the minutes between Jimmer Fredette and Austin Rivers.
Looking to see if the Pelicans will come out tonight and control the pace and score quickly.

Monty Williams on entering opener against Magic with no major injuries. ''It does feel good have everybody ready to play.''
The Pelicans have lost two of their last three opening games. They haven't won a home opener since beating Milwaukee in 2010.
The Magic will be without F/C Channing Frye, who has a left MCL sprain.
Outside of rotation and lineup management, the big thing I'm looking for tonight is how Monty adjusts our defensive schemes with Asik.
Monty Williams:''Our guys are ready to go. They had a tough camp and some hard practices. They're ready to get out there and start playing''
Rookies Russ Smith and Patric Young are the Pelicans' two inactives tonight vs. Magic.
Pelicans put rookies Russ Smith and Patric Young on inactive list for tonight's game
We have an answer to the small forward question. Tyreke Evans will be on the court for tipoff tonight.
Pelican fans are you ready for opening night???
Ryan Anderson on Orlando roster changes since he left in 2012: "The trainer is the same, the equipment manager is the same. That’s it."
Pelicans list rookie point guard Russ Smith as having a sprained left thumb, probable to play.
I spoke too soon on that Saints penalties thing.
Can the Panthers jump on a plane and just come and play the Saints right after this one ends tonight?
A sack of Rogers by Cam starts the 4th.
Aaron Rogers = not rattled
Was it Hawthorne on that stuff? Yes. And Walker
call reversed. Now GB calls time to think about this 4th and 1 at own 40
Payton watched replay on big screen and has decided to challenge the spot. He should win this IMO
73,146 is tonight's att at MB Superdome.
A pic of Rogers! How huge is that. Hawthorne grabbed a tipped ball. Stops Pack inside NO6.
Ingram can't get the 2 yards needed to convert 4th down. Thats the first true stop by a defense tonight. GB ball at own 42.
Mark Ingram in beast mode. 28 yard carry to mid field
A @thejimmygraham sighting early 3rd.
Crosby nailed it. 16-13 GB with 1:51 left in half.
27 to be exact
This will be about a 30 yard att on 4th and 6.
Saints will hold GB to another FG att after the 2 minute warning. Red ZOne D has been key for both teams.
