The New Orleans Pelicans lost a tight game to the Pacers last night during their home opener. Perhaps more frightening than the loss, or any time Eric Gordon awkwardly falls to the court, was the new mascot they revealed, Pierre the Pelican.
Today is Halloween, so it make sense Pierre would get rolled out the night before. Avert your eyes if you scare easily:
