Five things to know about the Pelicans on April 22, 2021

by Jim Eichenhofer

1)      While a tight, multi-team race is unfolding in the Eastern Conference for the final play-in spot, New Orleans (25-33) appears to be the last realistic hope for the same to occur in the West down the stretch. The Pelicans gained some ground Wednesday when both ninth-place Golden State (29-30) and No. 10 San Antonio (28-29) lost, putting those teams 3.5 games ahead of New Orleans. The Pelicans can cut their deficit to three games Thursday, but to do so must win at Orlando (18-40) at 6 p.m. Central. Pregame coverage on Bally Sports and 100.3 FM starts at 5:30. San Antonio hosts Detroit at 7:30.

2)      Due to tonight’s early tip-off time, there is no “Pelicans Weekly” radio show this week. It is scheduled to return April 29.

3)      Watch a video featuring Zion Williamson explaining what he loves about his new Zion 1 signature shoe.

4)      NBA writer Ben Golliver was the guest on Wednesday’s Pelicans Podcast.

5)      Check out the latest “24 Seconds” Q&A with Naji Marshall.
