Pelicans aim to build on solid opener vs. Kings

The New Orleans Pelicans had perhaps the most impressive opening-night performance of any team in the NBA.

But the 131-112 victory on Houston on Wednesday night isn't likely to lessen their focus on the opponent in their home opener Friday night.

That's because the Sacramento Kings won both meetings in the Smoothie King Center last season.
