The New Orleans Pelicans had high hopes coming into 2015-16, but have already been eliminated from playoff contention with just under two weeks left to play in the regular season. Why? Injuries and a slow acclimation to new coach Alvin Gentry’s two-way concepts, mostly.
But plays like this embarrassing missed dunk by 7’2 Alexis Ajinca account for the Pelicans’ wasted season, too. Sad.
