Tim Frazier’s Impact Performance Leads to Big Pelicans Victory

On Wednesday night, the Pelicans took on a struggling Washington Wizards team at the Smoothie King Center.  After a four-game losing streak, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry was looking to make a change that would spark his team. With injured point guard Elfrid Payton out until January, Gentry inserted former Wizard Tim Frazier into the starting lineup.

Pelicans Take 3-0 Series Lead Behind Nikola Mirotic, Staunch Defense, and Electric Crowd

There was a buzz in the air as a sell-out crowd packed the Smoothie King Center for the Pelicans return to New Orleans. The Pels led the Portland Trailblazers 2-0 in the first round of the NBA playoffs after winning both games out west to start the series. It was New Orleans first time in the playoffs since a first round exit in 2015, and the Pelicans clearly fed off the electricity from the crowd.

New Orleans led the game 18-16 after the first five minutes saw both teams get off to hot starts and trade early baskets. An ensuing six minute and forty-five-second scoring drought from the Trailblazers, that was ended by a Damian Lillard layup with two seconds
