Pelicans suffer another embarrassing loss

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The Pelicans' five-game road trip ended just like it began, with another disappointing loss, this time a 99-92 setback to the NBA's worst team, the New York Knicks.

New York (6-36) entered the match-up on a 16-game losing streak and a record of just 5-36.

Tyreke Evans scored 23 points for the Pelicans, while Eric Gordon added 20, but the Pels trailed by double digits at the half.

"Dug us a hole, we had to battle so hard to get back in the game," coach Monty Wililams said. "Give them credit, they came out right out of the gate and put some defensive pressure on our pick and rolls. We didn't run much offense in the first quarter and down the stretch, just trying to make plays and we just didn't make the plays we made last night, we just didn't make them tonight."

With the loss, New Orleans falls under .500 to 20-21 with a home game against the L.A. Lakers on deck Wednesday.
