The weekly NBA Power Rankings were released via ESPN today, where do the New Orleans Pelicans sit?

They come in standing pat at 17, where they were last week.

The Pels went 2-2 last week. They grabbed wins over the Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers. They fell to the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings.

This week they've got the Houston Rockets in H-Town, the Milwaukee Bucks at home, and then out to the Rocky Mountains of Denver Colorado to take on the Nuggets.

It would be nice to see the Pelicans win two out of three this week and start to separate themselves from the .500 mark. Right now they sit at 14-13, a couple of wins would push them in the right direction and in the Western Conference they're going to need to be plenty of games over .500 if they want to make the playoffs.
