The Pelicans schedule for the upcoming NBA season came out Tuesday. So here's a look at some games you might want to circle on your calendar.
The team's regular season home opener happens October 30 when the Pelicans welcome the Indiana Pacers to New Orleans. The first road test will be in Orlando on November 1. There will be a total of six national broadcasts.
There are some noteworthy home games:
January 21, the Sacramento Kings are in town, marking the return of guard Greivis Vasquez. Vasquez was part of the deal which brought Tyreke Evans to town.
March 14, it's Portland coming in. The Blazers were the third piece of above mentioned deal, sending Robin Lopez from NOLA to the great northwest, and bringing the Pelicans shot-blocking rookie Jeff Withey.
February 24 and March 26 will see former Hornet Chris Paul in for his only regular season visits.
And, March 22 will be the lone trip of the year to New Orleans for the world champion Miami Heat.
Of course, there is All Star Weekend hosted here in New Orleans February 13-16, right after we all return home from the New York-New Jersey Super Bowl. We hope.
