Pelicans Miss Open Shots

+

In a theme for the season, the Pels just can't put the ball in the basket in losses. They shot 4-16 (25%) from three on open (defender at least four feet away) shots last night. Included in that number, a horrendous 1-8 performance when the defender was at least six feet away.

Pelicans Lose Before Christmas

Sure, the referees could have called a closer game or the defense could have been stronger, but the Pelicans just failed to make enough shots. And, they certainly failed to push the issue.
