New Orleans Pelicans' Schedule Breakdown and Record Predictions for February

January was a weird month for the New Orleans Pelicans.

They lost to the bottom-feeding Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks but beat the contending Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks.

Will Ferrell beaned a cheerleader in the head at halftime against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Starting point guard Jrue Holiday went down, yet the Pels rattled off a season-best four-game winning streak.

They beat their old superstar (Chris Paul) without their new superstar (Anthony Davis).

Again, weird.

New Orleans now stands at 25-22, two games out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conferne.

Oddly, the team has gone 18-12 against much stauncher competition in the West—and 7-10 against the cotton-soft East. In February, eight of the Pelicans’ 11 games will come against Eastern Conference competition.

It’s time to overcome that unexplainable trend. If this is to become a postseason team, games against inferior opponents can’t be dropped.

Near the end of January, New Orleans was finally able to string some wins together. February will provide the Pelicans a chance to do the same.
