Five things to know about the Pelicans on March 13


1) New Orleans (26-38) saw its three-game winning streak come to an end Wednesday in heartbreaking fashion, as Memphis rallied in the final three minutes for a 90-88 victory. It was the Grizzlies’ first win over the Pelicans in four tries this season. Eric Gordon and Tyreke Evans were late scratches for New Orleans due to illness.

3) It’s been an extremely entertaining week on the Black & Blue Report, with Pelicans players serving as co-hosts each day on the show. Wednesday’s special show featured Ryan Anderson. Anthony Morrow will stop by today.

4) The Pelicans will practice this morning in Metairie, beginning preparations for another difficult Western Conference test on Friday, vs. the Portland Trail Blazers. Portland has gone 0-4 so far on its brutally challenging five-game road trip, losing last night at San Antonio.
