I don't get how this Pelicans team beats anyone. Every time I watch them they look like absolute trash.

Do they run any plays? If they don't score in transition it seems like they simply don't score.

Defensively they all gamble the passing lanes and give up wide open looks and layups... maybe it's by design since they can't score against a set defense.

I got New Orleans and Golden State as the winners.
Dude… I really hope you haven’t let your Lakers haterade influence any betting against the Lakers the last two play-in/playoffs.

And I get loathing the Lakers but not to the point of being completely blind to the obvious at times.

Was just commenting earlier how I think it’s strange how much some here bemoan the loss of Willie Greeb when he’s done next to nothing with a lot of talent on the team.

and the warriors - they're experienced and all that but highly disfunctional - it's like they know it's over

Right after I post the Lakers start settling for lazy 20 foot jumpers and not bothering to get back on defense.

It is 4D chess by the Pelicans... lull the opposition to sleep, then pounce!

So McCollum struggles against the Lakers but have career games against us.

Oh man… what a terrible/incredible break for the Pelicans/Lakers.

That really sucks. Was shaping up to be an epic finish.
