San Antonio vs. New Orleans Final Score: Spurs lose nail-biter to Pelicans, 113-114

The Spurs led most of the night, including in the final minute, but just couldn’t close things to secure the victory.

The Spurs entered the Frost Bank Center on the front end of a back-to-back hoping to put the last two games behind them, and they came oh-so-close against the New Orleans Pelicans but couldn’t quite get the job done. They led most of the night off spectacular efforts from their starters, but Zion Williamson was a beast who couldn’t be controlled down the stretch, and despite leading by three inside the final minute, the Spurs couldn’t close the deal and fell 113-114.

Devin Vassell led four starters in double-figures with 28 points, including 5-10 from three, while Victor Wembanyama and Jeremy Sochan both posted double-doubles. Williamson led the Pelicans with 33 points, and CJ McCullum added 21.

The Spurs will return to action tomorrow to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers. Tip-off will be at 7:30 PM CT on KENS 5.

(Apologies for the short Final Score, but the recap is coming soon.)
