The Pelicans are going to need as much support as possible if they want to secure three more victories over the Suns and advance to round 2 of the playoffs. Thankfully the Smoothie King Center, aka "The Blender", is sold out completely for the two upcoming home contests.

Yes, New Orleans is sure to be jumping this weekend as the Suns come into the Big Easy with a far from easy task on their hands. Phoenix will need to bring their absolute best game if they want to shut the door on a potential Pels upset in this series.

But with all of the excitement building for Pelicans fans, the rumors are swirling in regards to a potential special halftime performance for Friday night's game.
