Juan's World: Playoff basketball anyone???

Source: Pelicans team website Source: Pelicans team website
(WVUE) -

Welcome in to Juan's World, where it's prediction time for the Pelicans.

They just beat Orlando by 20 points, 118-98. They have five more games in this season-long six-game home stand to play. I think they'll win four of six with their only loses coming against Cleveland and San Antonio. Yes, I think they'll beat Oklahoma City. And by the time this home stand comes to a close, they'll be holding on to the eighth and final playoff spot as the All-Star game approaches.

Why do I think this? Well, the last time the Pels had a lengthy home stand, they won four of five to get in to the playoff discussion. This time, I just think they'l turn the corner and remain there.

Of course, tomorrow, I could think differently. But, for now, I see a lot of things to like about this team.

Juan's World, Juan's World...Excellent!!!

    Today's work was much lighter between the Saints and Chargers was much lighter. They wore no pads only shells and helmets, and they only practiced two hours instead of two and a half like Thursday. While they certainly weren't perfect, overall the Saints had much better execution today than Thursday.  "I thought overall it was a little bit crisper today than yesterday.
