Pelicans survive must-win game against Grizzlies 109-99
ORLANDO- The New Orleans Pelicans won against the Memphis Grizzlies Monday night 109-99.
Monday evening's matchup was one of the most anticipated of all the seeding games. Plenty was on the line for both teams, but the two top picks from last year's draft were also on the court, both Zion Williamson and Ja Morant.
