“Our identity is inconsistency,” (Paul) George said. “We’ve yet to spread from the pack (in the Eastern Conference) and we’ve yet to string some games together. We’ve yet to take a step back and look at the big picture and point out some things that we’re doing well over the course of this season. So really, we have nothing to really fall back on right now.”
“You still look around sometimes and it looks like we don’t enjoy the game enough,” (C.J.) Miles said. “You see big plays being made and sometimes you, like, see guys exhale instead of getting hyped about it, getting excited about it.”
Pelicans’ Alvin Gentry Blasts Officiating After Loss to Rockets
For the second consecutive game, the coach opposing the Houston Rockets finished the night with an epic rant against the officials. This time, it was New Orleans’ Alvin Gentry, who fired off against the referees following the Pelicans’ 107-101 home defeat.
“The thing that bothers me more than anything, and I really don’t care, we try to play the right way, and we play our asses off,” Gentry said. “All we want is an equal opportunity to win the game. Not have a situation where we are guessing on the biggest play of the game, where they call a 3-point foul from the corner.
