(WVUE) - The Pelicans' rag-tag squad of replacements fought valiantly in San Antonio, closing the lead to as little as six in the closing minutes but ultimately fell short, 100-92.
Seven of Alvin Gentry's players reached double-digit scoring, led by Alexis Ajinca's 18 points. Freshly signed James Ennis notched 13 points in his first day with the team. The Spurs were led by Manu Ginobili's 20 points as they improved to 63-12 overall.
New Orleans falls to 27-47 and will return home to host the Nuggets Thursday night at 7 p.m.
