Zion, Pelicans primed for last-gasp bid to make postseason

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Zion Williamson and the mercurial New Orleans Pelicans may yet have something to say about the NBA postseason.

San Antonio's recent five-game skid has helped the Pelicans pull within 1 1/2 games of the final Western Conference play-in spot with six games to go.

Meanwhile, the Pelicans have shaken off seemingly back-breaking losses to win three out of four, with their past two victories each requiring fourth-quarter comebacks.
