Do not count out the New Orleans Pelicans!!! Brandon Ingram… I mean KINGRAM went off for 30, 10 & 9 to lead NOLA to 125-116 win to even the series against the #1 seed Suns.
Devin Booker lost his damn mind in the 1st half pouring in a whopping 31 points in yet the Pels only trailed by 5.
I decided to hop on Pelicans +430 Money Line at the half.
The Pelicans & my money line bet caught a huge break when Devin Booker went out with hamstring injury. That is going to be a huge story going forward in this series.
It was all Pels in the 4th as they pulled away late behind Ingram. They also got huge contributions from Vallliciunas and the rookies brought a ton of energy on Defense!
Big shout out to Hold The Mayo (@snowlikejonn on Twitter) for joining me. Dude is hilarious and beloved in New Orleans for a reason.
And thanks to Cooter Brown’s for the free dozen raw oysters on the house as a thank you to Dave Portnoy and Barstool Fund for helping Herby K’s in Shreveport. Pretty sure Dave would not have eaten them anyway.
Friday night it is gonna get so wild in The Blender!
