Pelicans fall 112-106 to Kings, but Lonzo Ball and reserve players entertain with solid effort and production

With the New Orleans Pelicans getting eliminated from the 2020 postseason race at the start of the week, it was tempting to begin tonight’s recap of the 112-106 loss to the Sacramento Kings as “the team’s first exhibition loss of the season,” but it wouldn’t have been right to make a mockery of the proceedings.

While the game meant nothing in the standings, we witnessed enough good effort and several fun storylines stem from the play of the team’s young reserves, the likely future of the Pelicans.

The contest was competitive throughout. Even when New Orleans trailed by double digits with close to five minutes remaining in regulation, no shoulders drooped.
