76ers vs New Orleans Pelicans
The history between the Philadelphia 76ers and the New Orleans Pelicans technically dates back to the franchise’s time as the Hornets after relocating from Charlotte in 2002. Since then, the teams have played 40 times in the regular season, and in one six-game playoff series (2003), when the then-Hornets were still a part of the NBA’s Eastern Conference.
The Sixers hold a 21-19 advantage over New Orleans in the regular season, and have a 4-2 postseason record against the Pels, as they advanced in that 2003 first round series to the Eastern Conference Semifinals thanks in part to a 45-point performance from Allen Iverson in the closeout game.
Now when these teams go head-to-head, it’s for marquee matchups featuring the Sixers’ own Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris against Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram of the Pelicans. Don’t miss your chance to see these dynamic duos battle it out at The Center in South Philly.
Furkan Korkmaz ignited the 76ers to a win in New Orleans against the Pelicans on October 20, 2021. Kork tied Joel Embiid's team high of 22 points, including a perfect 4-4 from 3-point range in the team's season opening W. Tobias Harris and Tyrese Maxey dropped an additional 20 points each and collected 10 and 7 rebounds, respectively, along the way.
