Most of the Pelican games I have seen end this way. They compete, maybe take the lead, then give it away at the end. Very common with young teams.


Makes me think that with Zion if Zion is even just 50 or 60% as good as his potential is, they'd win a lot of these close games.

Nearly had them.

I don't understand officiating anymore. Lou Williams gets so many calls where he just leans into the defender on the dribble. Its so odd. Why is that a foul? Why do we just accept it?

It's not a foul but stars get it, Harden's made a career out of initiating contact himself and getting the foul called for him.

I hate it.. Bron would get these calls before he became a Laker.

They really haven’t, people are just looking at it through a different prism.

Zion GTA AGAIN!!! He has a sprained ankle. I didn't see how he sprained it. I believe he came down on a players foot. My point is, he seems to be hurt a lot. When he's healthy the Pels are a handful. I know it a very long shot but I'm pulling for them to get the 8th seed. They're 5 games out of the spot and the Grizzles are playing well. I think they'll probably hang on. They have 2 left with the Grizzlies and 2 with the Spurs. Also Spurs have 1 left with the Grizzlies. Like I said, a very long shot.

His FT rate is by far the lowest of his career, almost 12 % off his career average and 10 % lower than last season. Some of it naturally has to do with him aging and taking more outside shots, but it is apparent that he does not get the calls he should be getting. I don't believe it's a conspiracy, though, he does not flop (like Harden et al) and he is built like a tank so he can take the hit while still finishing.

Zion is a problem. Good lord.

Pels, as usual, suspiciously gifted a #1 when a star left (AD for CP3; Zion for AD).

Selfish narratives persist.. and are bogus.

Ingram does what he does, whether Zion is playing or not.
