NEW ORLEANS — One week away from one of the biggest cinematic releases the galaxy has ever experienced, the New Orleans Pelicans cashed in with ‘Star Wars Night’ on Friday against the Washington Wizards.
Compared to the creativity and enthusiasm put into Mardi Gras or Jazzfest, the Pelicans fans were somewhat underwhelming, but the Pelicans social media accounts seemed to have fun with the theme.
Here is a recap of the best that #StarWarsNight had to offer:
