The New Orleans Pelicans caused a massive upset in the 2nd game of the ongoing series against the Phoenix Suns, as they won the game by a score of 125-114.

Brandon Ingram led the way for his team as he scored 37 points while recording 11 rebounds and nine assists. He stepped up on occasion and delivered for his team when all the odds were against them, as they faced the No. 1 seed in the West who had a home-court advantage.

This Pelicans team has made a strong statement through their playoff run this season, as they have shown the world that they can beat any team on any given day. The inclusion of CJ McCollum has played a big part in their success this season.

CJ continued to impress, as he also scored 23 points and played a vital role in this big win for the Pelicans against the best team in the league away from home.

One of the reasons why the Suns lost this game was due to the fact that Devin Booker sustained a hamstring injury and was forced to leave the game. He was having a stellar game as he scored 31 points in just 24:47 minutes, and if he would not gone out due to the injury, the result would have been quite different.

It will be interesting to see how the injury of Devin Booker plays out, as it could have a significant influence on the way the rest of the postseason goes for the Phoenix Suns. They are currently the favorites to win the championship.
