Michael Thomas is ready for more people to start supporting the red-hot New Orleans Pelicans.
The New Orleans Saints receiver took to his Twitter account Wednesday to voice his support for the Pelicans during their current nine-game winning streak and said the winning culture "is contagious in New Orleans."
Y'all haters for not talking more about how the Pelicans are on a 9 in a row win streak. Are culture is contagious in New Orleans. And we calling out all bluffs this year. [?]
-- Michael Thomas (@Cantguardmike)
Thomas also said fans not talking about the Pelicans and their streak were "haters." Several replies asked Thomas if he planned to attend the next home game Friday against the Washington Wizards. He did not immediately reply.
The Pelicans' ninth straight win came after Tuesday night's 121-116 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. The Pelicans will be attempting to extend the streak to 10 straight games Wednesday night on the road game against the Sacramento Kings.
Ten straight wins would tie the Pelicans' franchise record.
The Saints finished with an 11-5 record in 2017, which included an eight-game winning streak.
