Pelicans-Suns rivalry brewing

Another good contest between these teams. After Zion's blowout 360 windmill dunk to close the last game infuriated the Suns, the Pelicans have handled them again. 129-124 in OT.

Zion with 35 points. Dyson Daniels got the start again and had 11 points, 8 assists in 36 minutes.

New Orleans remain top in the West and with 9-1 over their last 10 (though that included a few easy beats). Ingram and Jones still out.

And they have a game in Phoenix on Dec 18 as well. *popcorn*

For the Suns, Jock Landale had 8 and 7.

Edit: Quick highlight for Daniels vs CP3. Landale somewhat involved in the play.

The dribble out rule is anti-entertainment. Great dunk, Great crowd reaction. Crowd paying tickets to be there and getting a high octane moment at the end.

If it creates a rivalry then all good.

Were the Suns this petty back before CP3 arrived? Its not just the Pelicans but also Dallas that have clashed with them.
