“Yeah, I’m human. So it’s tough,” Noel said Wednesday before the team’s 104-103 loss to the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center. “I can’t lie about that.”
Pelicans’ Alvin Gentry Blasts Officiating After Loss to Rockets

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.
