New Orleans lost a tight game to the Blazers on Sunday night, but Pelicans starters Anthony Davis and Darius Miller got to see Kentucky, their college team, advance to the NCAA finals the night before with a win over Wisconsin in heroic fashion.
“I’m proud of the guys. They’ve been playing really good. Hopefully they can keep it going,” said Miller, the 6-8 small forward who teamed with Davis and others on Kentucky’s 2012 national champs before heading to the NBA.
“He’s done it a couple times in the tournament already. I had faith it was going in,” Miller said. “I like the way he took it with confidence.”
