What is there to say except that this was an absolutely woeful performance. Coming off a 9 day holiday, one would have never imagined this team was only sitting 1 and 1/2 games out of the playoffs in the Western Conference.
Outside of several good stretches in the first half, the Pelicans didn't look like they wanted to be troubled playing basketball. The difference in the effort (and the statistics proved it) was disheartening.
Not going to sugarcoat anything with individual statistics nor honors tonight. The New Orleans Pelicans might have failed their team mission of making the playoffs in game 1 of 29.
