The Pelicans season ended Tuesday with a 113-to-104 loss to
the defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors. Golden State was just too
good in this series, but New Orleans Coach Alvin Gentry still sees his team is
one on the rise.
“Even losing to the champs, I think you’ve got to be disappointed
that’s one of the things I like about our team is that we came in here with the
expectation of winning and if you’re not going to do that I don’t know how you
advance,” Gentry said.
