NEW ORLEANS — A 32-point performance from Zion Williamson wasn't enough Thursday as the Pelicans lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 123-118 at home.
Danilo Gallinari scored 29 points and former New Orleans Hornet Chris Paul had 14 points and 12 assists for OKC, finishing a season sweep of the Pelicans.
JJ Redick put up 24 points for the Pelicans and Jrue Holiday hada double-double with 14 points and 11 assists.
Turnovers plagued the Pelicans again. New Orleans gave up the ball 11 times in the first half, 17 times through the entire game. That sloppy play outweighed Zion's second game with 30+ points. He went 11-for-19 shooting and pulled down six rebounds on the night.
