Pelicans blow 20 point lead in 4th quarter, lose 123-119 in OT to Warriors
NEW ORLEANS - The Golden State Warriors executed the 3rd largest 4th quarter comeback in playoff history, rallying from 20 points down to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 123-119 in overtime of game 3 in their Western Conference playoff quarterfinal series.
Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 38 points and hit a game-tying 3 with 2 seconds left in regulation to level the game at 108 and send it into overtime.
Anthony Davis had 29 points, 15 rebounds and 3 assists for the Pelicans, but missed a potential game-tying shot in overtime as a contested shot in the lane fell short and the Warriors made 2 free throws for the final margin.
The Pelicans now find themselves in a 3-0 hole in the series, and will try to avoid a sweep Saturday as they host the Warriors at 7pm.
