The Pelicans blew a nine-point lead in the finale 3:30 of the fourth quarter in a 116-109 overtime loss to the Kings last night
Suffice it to say, New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry wasn’t pleased.
Trevor Ritchie of The Bird Writes:
They outplayed us in every phase of the game. So, you decide what that is.
You either want it, or you don’t. That’s the bottom line. You either want to be good, or you don’t. Or you can do what we did.
If you don’t get in and dig in and compete at the level that you’re supposed to, then this is what happens.
We get control of the game, and then we screw around. And then we get control of the game, and then we screw around.
We’ll look back at this and say, “Oh my god. I can’t believe we did that.” Well, we did it.
Not even those pointed words do justice to Gentry’s attitude. Watch the video for his tone – and particularly how he storms off to end his press conference.
