Pelicans' late playoff bid runs through Houston

HOUSTON -- While the odds are slim at best, the New Orleans Pelicans have mustered hope for crashing the Western Conference postseason party with five wins in six games.

When the Pelicans visit the Houston Rockets (49-22) on Friday night at Toyota Center, they will be four games behind the Denver Nuggets for eighth in the West.

The Pelicans (30-41) would have to leapfrog the Dallas Mavericks and Portland Trail Blazers before even considering bypassing the Nuggets, with the website Basketball Reference placing their postseason odds at a meager 1.3 percent.
