The New Orleans Pelicans will tip off the 2018-19 season on Wednesday, October 17 on the road against the Houston Rockets.  The game will be featured on ESPN at 7:00 p.m. and feature two Western Conference Semifinalists from last season.  Also featured will be two NBA MVP finalists in the Pelicans' Anthony Davis and the Rockets' James Harden.

The NBA announced the opening contests across the league today.  They also announced their Martin Luther King Jr. Day slate of games which will include the Pelicans on the road against the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday, Januray 21.

We'll have to wait a bit longer for the entire Pelicans schedule as the NBA will announce that on a later date.
