( -- The Pelicans are rolling back into New Orleans up 2-0 in their first round playoff series against the Trail Blazers, after a suffocating defense sucked the life out of Portland’s star duo of CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard. 

Pelicans Senior Vice President of Sales, Mike Stanfield says New Orleans’ stars are putting on a clinic. 

“It’s going to be rocking to come back after a two wins in Portland,, out there. After seeing what Jrue Holiday did and Anthony Davis. This is a special team.”

Stanfield says over the course of one of the most successful seasons in a decade, the fans have bought in, and turned up.

“New Orleans fans are the best in the country. The passion, the knowledge and really… becoming the sixth man.”

The team is planning to throw a party for fans in attendance, with free tee-shirts, pep rallies, a fan fest outside, and…

“At half-time, we’re going to have a New Orleans native, Mannie Fresh for our half-time entertainment. So, it will really be (an) exciting atmosphere.”

Game three tips off Thursday at 8pm with a potential series clinching game four on Saturday at 4pm.
