Throughout the season we'll be keeping an eye on not only the Pelicans but the Top 5 in the NBA on a weekly basis, you can check out the entire list here.

The New Orleans Pelicans had an average week going 2-2 last week. It was a rough start to the week as the team lost two close games to start the week against the Los Angeles Lakers and the Philadelphia 76ers. However, they finished the week strong with two road wins, one against the Pheonix Suns and a very impressive one at the Denver Nuggets on Saturday.

With the 2-2 record, last week New Orleans stayed steady in the Weekly Power Rankings at 22nd and they're 29-36.

Here is this week's Top 5:

  1. Milwaukee Bucks (48-15)-Steady at 1
  2. Golden State Warriors (44-19)-Steady at 2
  3. Toronto Raptors (46-18)-Steady at 3
  4. Denver Nuggets (42-20)-Steady at 4
  5. Portland Trailblazers (39-24)-Up one from 6

This week New Orleans has four games, they start on the road against the Utah Jazz (36-26) on Monday and on Wednesday they fly back to New Orleans with the Jazz to play them at home. On Friday they stay at home to face the Toronto Raptors and finish the week on the road traveling to Atlanta to do battle with the Hawks (22-42) on Sunday.
