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 39 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 20-19 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.
In their last regular season meeting with the Pelicans, the 76ers won a close one in Philadelphia. Joel Embiid was the high points man, as he dropped 37 on the young New Orleans team, and Tobias Harris and Seth Curry chipped in with 17 and 16, respectively as the Sixers took a close one, 109-107.
