New Orleans Pelicans NBA schedule
The Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets have certainly made life difficult for their Western Conference foes of late. But things just got a little easier in the Big Easy. Already blessed with the imposing presence of 6-foot-11 power forward Anthony Davis — the five-time NBA All-Star — the Pelicans have added former Los Angeles Lakers power forward Julius Randle. The truth is, no matter how gifted the former Kentucky standout may be, Davis can’t do it all by himself. Randle is a much-needed complementary piece, a potential difference-maker with whom to share the load. The one-two punch of Davis-Randle has all the makings of a potent one, and fans are clamoring for New Orleans Pelicans tickets at the 16,867-seat Smoothie King Center once more.
