Pelicans-Rockets Preview

(AP) -- The New Orleans Pelicans are entering a difficult stretch that could teach them plenty about their prospects of reaching the postseason for the first time in four seasons.

It begins Thursday night in Houston, where the Rockets open a three-game homestand with their sights set on a season-best fourth straight home win.

The Pelicans (12-12) have been surging offensively, shooting 51.2 percent and scoring 112.5 points per game while winning four of their last six.
