The Pelicans Maddening Streak Continues in the Big Apple

Although the Pelicans started real slowly, they forced the Knicks to beat them in the waning moments of the game.

As though the Pelicans didn't already have enough problems with fighting superstition and their latest W-L-W-L-W-L... streak, our friends at SBNation NBA made us aware of another one:

In the first half, the Pelicans were completely flat. Considering they were playing their 3rd game in 4 days, shorthanded and without their two best players, New Orleans succumbed to their 3rd loss on this Eastern Conference road trip.

A very disappointing result for sure, but it's hard to win against anybody when Ryan Anderson goes 4-17 from the floor, and in general, the Pelicans missed a lot of good looks.

Tyreke Evans had 23 points and Eric Gordon 20. Omer Asik had 11 points and 17 rebounds. After a slow start, Alexis Ajinca recovered some and posted 8 points and 11 rebounds. Quincy Pondexter got hot late and chipped in 10 points.

Matty will have your full recap a bit later, but it's not going to be pretty. The Pelicans lost three games on the road trip to teams with a combined record of 31-94.
