Pelicans Blow 20-Point Lead In Loss To Golden State
The New Orleans Pelicans are on the verge of being eliminated from the NBA playoffs.
The Pelicans have yet to win a game in their postseason matchup with the Golden State Warriors. Last night the Pelicans lost 123-119 at home in the Smoothie King Center.
It was the Pelicans first home playoff game since 2011, when the then-Hornets lost in six games to the L.A. Lakers.
New Orleans led by 20 points entering the fourth quarter, but Golden State rallied, sending the game to overtime on a dramatic Stephen Curry 3-point shot with 2 seconds remaining in regulation.
The teams will face each other on Saturday night here in New Orleans. No NBA team has ever rallied down three games to none to win a best-of-seven series.
