Pelicans vs. Suns score: New Orleans uses big second half to lower Phoenix in Game 4, right up in the series

The New Orleans Pelicans defended at home Sunday night and withdrew from the Phoenix Suns to a 118-103 victory in Game 4 of their first round. Now all drawn at 2-2, the series will switch back to Phoenix for a decisive game 5 Tuesday night.

Like he has all series, Brandon Ingram led the way for the Pelicans and finished with 30 points, four rebounds and five assists. He was particularly influential in the changing third quarter, scoring 18 points as the Pelicans turned a deficit in the break to a double-digit lead. Fur was never behind again, retiring in the middle of the fourth quarter with an energetic run led by the defense of rookies Herb Jones and Jose Alvarado. They also got a great night out from Jonas Valanciunas, who went after 26 points, 15 rebounds and four assists.

Deandre Ayton had 23 points for the Suns, while JaVale McGee added 14 points from the bench on a perfect 7-of-7 shooting performance. However, the two who are the leading goal scorers are never a good sign for the Suns and they just did not have enough offensive in this match where Devin Booker was still on the sidelines due to a hamstring injury.
