We are not going to lie to each other, the 2021-2022 season of the Pelicans will not have been easy. Greatly handicapped by Zion’s white season, NOLA was able to react by finishing in ninth place in the West. Even stronger, the Pels even managed to hang the Playoffs via the play-in, before losing with honors 4-2 against Phoenix. While Thanos should finally make his return to the courts next season, the gang of Brandon Ingram and CJ McCollum has every right to dream. Moreover, to find out what awaits the Pels next season, let’s take a look at their calendar.
Bravery. This is what we wish Pelicans fans for their start to the season. In their first ten games, Zion and his friends will cross swords with Brooklyn, Dallas, Phoenix, the two teams from Los Angeles, Golden State or even Atlanta. The Suns – opponents of NOLA in the first round of the Playoffs – will also meet four times on the road to the Pels between the start of the season and mid-December. Did you say tense? Not sure NOLA gets away with a lot of wins. But these matches should be used to gauge each other even if it’s not ideal to give Zion time to slowly get back into the swing of things. Fortunately, in the lot there will also be matches against “small opponents” like Houston, Indiana, San Antonio, Oklahoma City or Detroit. Always handy for taking care of the balance sheet. Another feature of the New Orleans calendar: the end of the year may be a hassle without name while the Pels will potentially be in the race for the Playoffs. Warriors, Nuggets, Clippers (twice), Grizzlies, Wolves, all of these teams will face NOLA between March 25 and April 9.
# Plus long road-trip : 5 games in mid-January, the birds are doing quite well.
# Longest home session: 6, from November 10 to 21, but it feels a bit like a trap.
# National broadcast matches (TNT + ESPN + ABC): 11, thanks Zion.
# Number of games played back-to-back: 12, another one who is doing well.
# Matches at schedule French for Pelicans:
- 30/10 at the Clippers (8 p.m.)
- 04/12 vs Nuggets (21h30)
- 11/12 vs Suns (21h30)
- 01/16 in Cleveland (9 p.m.)
- 01/22 in Miami (9:30 p.m.)
- 09/04 in Minnesota (9:30 p.m.)
# A few posters to remember: here, the choice is not very complicated, since the whole basketball planet is waiting for the same thing: the reunion of Zion Williamson with the floors. Take out your TrashTalk calendar and write it down, it will be October 19 at the Nets. And as good news never comes alone, it will also be an opportunity to see Ben Simmons again on a basketball court. We told you to take note. Another thing we can’t wait for is the return of the Jose Alvardo versus Chris Paul duel. The West’s fastest ball snatcher will return to Point God on October 28 and December 9, 11 and 17. That’s still a lot of opportunities for balloon sprouts. Come on, youngest for the road, it will be necessary to be particularly attentive to the matches of the Pels between October 19 and November 5, since the meetings promise to be very complicated (Phoenix, Dallas, Lakers, Clippers, Golden State among others).
