New Orleans Pelicans hope to avoid season series sweep to Minnesota Timberwolves

The Wolves have lost just six times at home this season, but the Pelicans did knock off the Thunder last night who had lost 7 games in their own building. Plus, Nikola Mirotic will play and Emeka Okafor might be available. Maybe clutching a rabbit's foot wouldn't hurt, too.
