Time is running out for the New Orleans Pelicans, who are 3.5 games out of the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference. Anthony Davis and his crew briefly held the eighth spot playing solid basketball from January to the end of February. However, the Pelicans are now struggling to win games and are on a four-game losing streak, including a damaging loss to the Suns last Thursday in which New Orleans only scored 72 points throughout the whole game. The Pelicans have two more home games to end this month against beatable opposition before going on a three game road trip.
New Orleans Pelicans tickets on the secondary market have an average price of $132.58 for their remaining five home games at the Smoothie King Center. The most expensive Pelicans game of their final home stretch is their next home game this Friday against the Sacramento Kings. Pelicans vs Kings tickets have an average price of $188.73 on the secondary market, with the least expensive ticket to get in priced at $9. Pelicans tickets for Friday’s game against the Kings will see a 42% premium compared to New Orleans’ remaining regular season home average.
The Pelicans will have their work cut out for them for their last 11 remaining games during the regular season. That will include tough road matchups with some top Western Conference foes such as the Memphis Grizzlies, Portland Trail Blazers, and Houston Rockets that could derail their playoff hopes if the losses pile up.
It’s not looking good for the Pelicans at the moment who still need to end their current four-game losing streak, find a way to beat three top teams in the West on the road. They’ll also have to find a way to win at home against best team in the West, the Golden State Warriors, and the defending NBA Champions, the San Antonio Spurs, in their regular season finale.
