Five things to know about the Pelicans on Oct. 13


1) The Pelicans play a rare Sunday preseason matinee in a few hours against the Atlanta Hawks in Biloxi at 1 p.m. Central. Follow our official Twitter account @PelicansNBA and writer @Jim_Eichenhofer for pregame, in-game and postgame updates.

2) Neither team is televising the game or broadcasting it on radio, another rarity. The Pelicans Radio Network resumes its live preseason coverage with Thursday’s 7 p.m. game against Oklahoma City.

3) The Pelicans are officially the home team today for the first time in preseason. They’ve worn their road navy blue uniforms during a 3-0 start to the exhibition schedule.

4) Tyreke Evans won’t play Sunday, but he hopes to be able to return to game action Thursday vs. the Thunder in Tulsa.
