Pelicans have been a completely different team in the clutch since Dec. 15 (the OKC 60-foot winner).
Prior to that, the Pels were 1-9 in clutch games. Since then, they are 6-3.
*The NBA defines clutch as the score within five in the final five minutes.

Howard Chen @TheHoChen
I feel so rotten for David Culley. He was given a bad roster expected to do HORRIBLY. His team showed fight even in the losses, something that can’t be said for so many teams. Davis Mills developed even when there were so many detractors and a banged-up offensive line. – 3:27 PM
