| Pelicans Talk|| 3rd Quarter Malaise: Reality or Myth? - corndeaux on 11/19/13 at 9:57 am|
I was curious about the constant meme of "Hornets/Pelicans always get outplayed in the 3rd." I have felt this way at times, but was not entirely convinced, and wanted to see if the numbers bore it out.

[quote]Anthony Davis is a golden god.
The Pellies are a mystery at 3-4 — just about average on both ends, despite a world of issues. Jrue Holiday has shot poorly and gotten to the line less, Ryan Anderson is hurt (turning the Pellies into the Grizzlies from deep), and though Eric Gordon is attack...
