Performance Rankings: Pelicans at Spurs

New, comments

Well, of all the ways to lose, that is one of them.

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

The Pelicans lost in heartbreaking fashion tonight. An Omer Asik own goal sent the game to overtime when the Pelicans were up two points with 0.7 seconds remaining. Jrue Holiday fouled out in overtime and the tide turned to the Spurs. New Orleans was unable to execute down the stretch. Tyreke Evans, hero last night scoring eight straight points, will be the dog tonight.

That was the most brutal way to lose yet this season. Despite an awful first half the Pelicans valiantly battled back to make it a game. In the end it wasn't enough.

Jimmer fans, go wild. You've earned it tonight.
