Alvin Gentry deserves credit for New Orleans Pelicans turnaround, coaching adjustments

The New Orleans Pelicans skidded out of the gate this season, but maybe that’s an understatement, especially as the fanbase and front office both had pretty high expectations for the team heading into the year.

After starting 6-22 on the heels of a 13-game losing streak, the New Orleans Pelicans have looked like a team renewed since just before Christmas, now 8-3 since getting off the streak.

While many have pointed to the performance of this team’s young players, the rise of Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram being the most noteworthy, head coach Alvin Gentry has certainly done a lot to get this team back on track.
