Five things to know about the Pelicans on Nov. 22, 2021
1) The theme for Week 6 of New Orleans’ four-game schedule is opponents who are either off to an excellent start, or who’ve been playing much better basketball lately. The latter description applies to tonight’s foe, Minnesota (7-9), winners of three straight. The former is the case for Washington (11-5, third in Eastern Conference) and Utah (11-5, third in West). The Jazz will host the Pelicans twice in Salt Lake City this weekend.
2) Tip-off for Timberwolves-Pelicans is at 7 p.m., with pregame coverage on Bally Sports and 100.3 FM starting at 6:30.
3) Tickets to Monday’s game are available here.
4) After hosting Minnesota and Washington (Wednesday, 7 p.m.) over the next three days, New Orleans will go on the road for five of its subsequent six games.
