The struggles continue for the Minnesota Timberwolves. They are now 4-10 and have lost their past three games.
New Orleans led 53-50 at the half, but broke it open in the third quarter and outscored the Wolves 36-18 in the quarter.
Star forward Anthony Davis led the Pelicans with 45 points and 10 rebounds. Terrence Jones came off the bench and scored 17 points.
Zach Lavine led the Wolves with 26 points, but Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony combined for only 24 points on 6/30 shooting.
There is still 68 games remaining in the season, but if this team expects to contend for a playoff spot in the tough Western Conference, they need to really get it together soon.
Up next: Wolves travel West to face the Phoenix Suns on Friday.
