Scoot, Blazers Lose to Pelicans in Turnover Fashion

The New Orleans Pelicans entered Tuesday night’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers with everything in front of them. The Pels are battling the Phoenix Suns for the coveted 6th seed in the Western Conference Playoffs to avoid the scary Play-In games. The Blazers on the other hand are making travel plans and preparing for exit interviews. Knowing both of these scenarios, it would seem the young Portland team would come out flat and ready to pack it in, but yet again the rookies and Deandre Ayton proved us wrong.

The Blazers played inspired basketball in the first half, specifically in the first quarter.
