The Pelicans ran into one of the best teams in the West Saturday, and the Los Angeles Clippers escaped with a 133-130 win over New Orleans.

The game did feature another controversial call. With 5:52 to play, Clipper Montrezl Harrell reached over Derrick Favors and scored a tip-in basket. Favors was then called for a foul. The Pelicans challenged the call, and were denied. New Orleans was charged a time out.

That call, and a controversial call in the final second of a win Thursday night vs Utah had Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry tight lipped after the game.

The Pelicans were hurt by 21 turnovers.
