Pelicans look shaky in lopsided loss to Trail Blazers

The young New Orleans Pelicans (13-13) continue to play inconsistently this season, falling to the Portland Trail Blazers by 26 points Saturday night at the Smoothie King Center. The 114-88 defeat was the second most lopsided affair of the year for the Pels, who entered the match-up with a two-game win streak.

Anthony Davis made just 3-of-14 shots to finish with seven points. As a team, the Pelicans shot just 35 percent from the floor. Ryan Anderson added 16 points off the bench, but New Orleans also committed 16 turnovers.

Playing the second game of a back-to-back, Portland (22-6) raced out to a commanding 32-17 lead after the first quarter. LaMarcus Aldridge led the way with a game-high 27 points and 12 rebounds. Damian Lillard had 17 points and seven assists.

The Pels will face the Thunder in Oklahoma City tomorrow night.
