Pelicans search for defense into T-Wolves matchup

The New Orleans Pelicans have been playing very bad defense.

Maybe they can slow down the struggling Minnesota Timberwolves offense.

The Pelicans have allowed 111 or more points in each of their last nine games. That includes a season-high points allowed in a 129-118 loss at Utah on Thursday that dropped the Pelicans to 1-4 on a road trip that concludes against the T-wolves on Saturday.
