Sometimes, it's just not your day. Saturday was not the New Orleans Pelicans' day.
The Pelicans faced off with the Clippers on Saturday evening in the third day of the NBA's seeding games. Things didn't go according to plan for the Pellies.
Because, after taking the Jazz down to the wire on Thursday, New Orleans was probably feeling pretty good about where it stood in the race for the Western Conference's eighth seed. You know, build off a close loss and try to play competitive basketball and all that?
Well, maybe not.
Fast forward to Saturday afternoon, the Pelicans found themselves down by 32 points at halftime, and... let's just say JJ Redick wasn't exactly enjoying himself.
ESPN cameras caught an instant-classic shot of the former Sixers sharpshooter:
Sorry, JJ. This is what happens when you leave Philadelphia.
And if it wasn't bad enough that Redick was dealing with this existential dread and sadness, the internet also decided to take the moment and run with it:

When they showed Redick on the screen, I had no idea why they were bashing the Pelicans on TV... But he looked like the moment when ya "gonna go stay with ya dad" for the weekend. pic.twitter.com/Cxq7nndlQx— IchirakuLivesMatter(sd) (@sKrDavis503) August 1, 2020
