Pelicans, Bulls meet in game between improving teams

NEW ORLEANS -- For the New Orleans Pelicans and the Chicago Bulls, all the arrows are pointing up.

The Pelicans (24-21) have won five of their last seven games, including a 111-104 home victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night. The Bulls are just 18-28 on the season, but they have gone 15-8 since starting the season 3-20, and they have won four of their last five games, including an impressive 113-97 road victory over Miami on Monday night.

When the Pelicans host the Bulls Monday night, they will be trying to win their second straight game at home and improve on a 12-9 record at the Smoothie King Center that coach Alvin Gentry says could be the key to their playoff hopes.
