Williamson, Griffin, offer different views of Pelicans' play

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Zion Williamson takes little comfort in how close the New Orleans Pelicans came to qualifying for the postseason.

If anything, the 20-year-old All-Star put the club on notice about the urgency with which he'd like New Orleans to approach this offseason.

"Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is kind of insane, so I'm not going to going to sit here and say we're close," Williamson said. "The reality of it is it was very disappointing not to be a part of the play-in tournament and stuff. But we just got to come in and just be better. That's just me being real."
