Williams Says Pels Are Better, But the “West is a Beast”

Pelicans coach Monty Williams had his season ending press briefing with the media Thursday at the team’s headquarters on Airline Drive.

Williams touched on a variety of subjects, including his many critics.

“The people who complain want the same thing,” said Williams. “They want to win.”

Williams noted that the Pelicans have the same dilemmas as many teams in the West.

“We have to go beat San Antonio, we just haven’t been able to do that,” said Williams. “We have to win on the road at OKC, those are the things that I believe build confidence to help you beat Sacramento and the teams that are in the same boat we are in.”
