Pelicans fall to Warriors, eliminated from playoffs

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The New Orleans Pelicans took the court Saturday not only looking to pick up the win over the Golden State Warriors, but also to prevent the sweep to the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. Despite a strong effort in the second half, the Pelicans were unable to overcome their slow start in the first, falling to the Warriors, 109-98 at the Smoothie King Center.

Anthony Davis led the way for New Orleans (45-37), finishing with 36 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks. Eric Gordon posted 29 points and five rebounds.

The Warriors (67-15) were led by Steph Curry, who recorded 39 points, eight rebounds and nine assists. Klay Thompson tallied 25 points, while Draymond Green had 22 points and 10 rebounds.

Golden State moves on to face the winner of the Portland vs. Memphis series.
