The New Orleans Pelicans could be scheduled to travel to face the Miami Heat on Christmas Day. According to Miami Herald reporter Barry Jackson the draft of the NBA schedule currently circulating includes Anthony Davis traveling to South Beach for Christmas.
The last time New Orleans played on Christmas Day was in 2008. The then-Hornets were demolished by the eventual Eastern Conference Champion Orlando Magic 88-68 in an utterly forgettable game. Pelican fans no doubt are hoping for a better Christmas present this December.
In case you missed it, these are the uniforms the Pelicans will wear should these reports prove correct. I would be shocked if procuring an Anthony Davis version, should jersey collecting be your fancy, is terribly difficult.
Per league source, tentative (not yet definite) NBA schedule in circulation has New Orleans playing the Heat on Christmas in Miami at noon.— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) August 5, 2015
Last season the Pelicans defeated the Miami Heat in both games. Chris Bosh missed both contests while Davis and Ryan Anderson were injured early on in the first game in Miami.
