Alvin Gentry, New Orleans Pelicans catching fire after early season slump

Stumbling out of the gate to a 1-7 start to the 2019-2020 season, the New Orleans Pelicans picked up a huge win last night, moving to 5-9 on the season, putting them closer to the group chasing the eighth spot in the West.

After such a slow start, confidence was starting to drop not just for the Pels as a whole, but it really started to feel like Head Coach Alvin Gentry couldn’t survive the season with the team losing so many early-season tilts.

Playing brilliant team basketball as the team is now 4-2 over their last six games, despite a ton of injuries, Gentry and the rest of the coaching staff are getting this team going on both ends.
