Yeah, it feels like we're watching the same game over and over again.The problem with all the highlight reel stuff, the Pelicans just can't figure out how to win games when it counts. Unfortunately regular season games is when it counts. And we can't do it. And that just sucks.
They didnt lose because Gentry took Zion out, they lost because the Spurs were knocking down shots and the Pelicans were not for the first 3.5 quarters.
Well I do think they (GM, Trainer, Etc.) not so much Gentry were over Zion's mins so it is to keep Zion healthy overall so we can have him longer. He did look pretty winded.Zion goes off in the 4th and Gentry takes him out of the game. Just another reason the Pelicans need a new coach.
Probably not, but Anthony Davis has no credibility in deciding what the Pels need to do to win. The entire team was walking injured his entire career in NOLA, Davis included. Hard to win if the best players never play. NOLA doesn't attract the best talent either. Of they become a championship-level team, it will be through trades and the draft.Do most people think that Gentry can make the Pels a legitimate team some day?
From what I gather Davis didn't think so.
Obviously so he doesn't aggravate his injury.Why on earth would you take a hot hand like Zion out of the game now? This makes zero sense.
TNT were saying Ball ignored Gentry twice when he tried to get a timeout in. Damn shame when the squad ignores the head coach because of ineptitude.Well I do think they (GM, Trainer, Etc.) not so much Gentry were over Zion's mins so it is to keep Zion healthy overall so we can have him longer. He did look pretty winded.
But since Gentry had kept him in longer than necessary he should have made an executive decision and just kept him in. It's like dude, coach your team.
Well, I just wish I could watch a Pelicans game that they actually win. If I'm watching it live, they always find a way to lose and send me to bed aggravated.Probably not, but Anthony Davis has no credibility in deciding what the Pels need to do to win.

There were actually two stories out there I heard. One said that they would have him on a pitch count. The other said they wouldn't.They said they would limit his time before the game started. Every time he came off the floor the trainers examined him. You can clearly see they're more concerned with his health long term than winning a single game. Pels fans would call for Gentry's head if Zion continued to play and re-injured himself because he fatigued due to not being in game shape. You could see Gentry getting up to pull Zion, but he left him in when he got a hot hand.
