Clippers vs. Pelicans: Live NBA play-in tournament updates as both teams battle for Wests No. 8 seed – CBS Sports


The New Orleans Pelicans are heading to the NBA playoffs after taking down the Los Angeles Clippers, 105-101, on Friday night and will now square off against the Phoenix Suns in the 1/8 matchup in the Western Conference. 

Despite the fact that they were without the services of Paul George, who was ineligible to play in the game after entering the league’s health and safety protocols, the Clippers were able to make a run after falling behind by double digits to Brandon Ingram and the Pelicans. In the end, however, it was not enough to get the job done as New Orleans ultimately came out on top. With the win, the Pelicans will next square off against the Suns on Sunday night with the opening tip scheduled for 9 p.m. ET. 

With the loss, the Clippers see their season come to an end in what has to be a disappointing fashion given the expectations they had after adding George and Kawhi Leonard to their roster.
