Code sharing leads Pelicans to void about 2,500 playoff tickets

The New Orleans Pelicans say they’ve voided around 2,500 playoff tickets that were purchased improperly during a presale event for the second round of the NBA playoffs.

The club says the event was designed exclusively for season-ticket holders, but that codes provided for online purchases were shared with people who were not eligible for the promotion.

The Pelicans say they have not previously had a problem with the improper sharing of promotional codes for ticket sales, but that an “unprecedented demand for playoff tickets resulted in tickets being purchased by non-season ticket or partial season ticket holders.”

“That’s the tough part of this game is that those inches and those swings of momentum are so huge and you try to get them back,” Trotz said. “You have some control of it, and you just want to make sure that you execute at the highest level.”

The incident led to a two-game suspension for Barnes. Last month, Barnes — who announced his retirement in December — said any feud with Fisher was over.

Fisher and Govan have dated since 2015. No information on a wedding was reported.

Patterson has practiced with the Wolverines during the spring as he awaits word on whether or not he’ll be able to compete for playing time in 2018.

The former five-star prospect threw for 2,259 yards and 17 touchdowns in seven games last year as a sophomore before a leg injury cut his season short.

If cleared to play, Patterson is expected to compete with redshirt sophomore Brandon Peters and redshirt freshman Dylan McCaffrey — another former five-star recruit — among others. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters in March that former starter Wilton Speight might also return to the team despite declaring his intention to transfer to another school at the end of the 2017 season.dolphins_075
