Pelicans look to end homestand with win over 76ers
NEW ORLEANS -- After blowing a nine-point lead with 3 1/2 minutes left and losing in overtime to struggling Sacramento on Friday night, the New Orleans Pelicans (13-13) conclude a four-game home stand Sunday night with a much tougher task -- putting the clamps on the Philadelphia 76ers' dynamic duo of Joel Embiid and rookie of the year candidate Ben Simmons.
Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry was so distraught with his team's play in the fourth quarter and overtime in a 116-109 loss to Sacramento that he lit into his players for their lack of intensity. The Pelicans shot 11-of-31 from the floor and 1-of-8 from 3-point range and committed six turnovers in the final 17 minutes.
"You either want it or you don't, that's the bottom line," Gentry said. "You either want to be good or you don't."MORE
