Grizzlies dominate New Orleans in lackluster Pelicans performance

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Playing the second game of a back-to-back, the Pelicans looked flat and uninspired for the majority of Wednesday night's game, losing to the Memphis Grizzlies, 110-74, the worst loss of the season for New Orleans.

It was a 27-24 game after one quarter before Memphis outscored the Pelicans by 16 in the second quarter to take a commanding 55-36 halftime lead. New Orleans scored a mere 12 points in the second quarter, the lowest amount allowed by Memphis in a quarter this season.

Anthony Davis tallied just 12 points and five rebounds and Tyreke Evans added 10 for the Pelicans, while Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol and Jeff Green each scored 15 for the Grizzlies, who shot 51 percent. New Orleans made only 28-of-80 attempts for 35 percent.

With the loss, the Pelicans (42-36) are tied with the Oklahoma City Thunder (42-36) for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference with just four games left to play. New Orleans does hold the head-to-head tiebreaker.

New Orleans returns home to face the Phoenix Suns on Friday night, while Oklahoma City hosts the Sacramento Kings, also on Friday.
