“It’s exactly the same. We play good basketball, when we need to execute, get big defensive plays we don’t. This three-game road trip has all been the same. All the games have been very similar. We play, and we’ve been right there. We haven’t been able to close, defend, or come up with baskets,” said Pels head coach Alvin Gentry.
Jrue Holiday led New Orleans with 27 points in the contest. Anthony Davis finished with 26 points and 17 rebounds.
Willie Cauley-Stein had 22 points and 17 rebounds for the Kings (18-15)
