Pelicans frustrated with 0-4 start to season

Wednesday November 2nd, 2016

Members of the New Orleans Pelicans say they are frustrated with the start to this season, as they have yet to win any of their games so far.

New Orleans lost 117–113 to the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday, dropping them to 0-4. Three of the team's losses have come at home.

"Definitely frustrating," Pelicans forward Anthony Davis said. "We can't get a win. It's frustrating."

"I'm not worried about last year," Davis added. "I'm focused on this year, trying to get a win. But it's frustrating. Whatever we need to do, we need to do it fast."

Davis had 35 points and 15 rebounds, as well as three steals and three blocks against the Bucks. He is averaging 37 points and 13 rebounds per game this season.

"I'm frustrated, but I've got to find a solution," Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry said. "I can't be frustrated to the point of where I throw up my hands and not anything's going on. It's my job. That's why they hired me here. I've got to find a solution to our problems. I've got to find a solution to why we're turning the ball over. I've got to find a solution as to why we can't go into the game with a defensive plan and stick to it."

New Orleans is next to last in the league in three-point field goal percentage (24%) and is averaging 98.6 points per 100 possessions, which ranks 27th in the NBA.

The Washington Wizards, Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns and Philadelphia 76ers are the other teams in the NBA that have yet to win a game this season.

New Orleans will try for its first win of the season against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday.
