Pelicans with backs against the wall in Orlando restart following disappointing 126-103 loss to Clippers

There is no sugar coating it.

There is no silver lining.

No minutes restriction or opening night jitters to explain away the New Orleans Pelicans’ embarrasing 126-103 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Sometimes the numbers lie, but they paint a very clear picture of the worst loss New Orleans has suffered since their Boston Massacre; a 140-105 loss to the Celtics back on Jan. 11.

Los Angeles made nine of their team-record 25 three-pointers in the first quarter as they raced out to a 12-point lead.

The Clippers got seven more in the second quarter, effectively ending the game by halftime.
