Fredette, who was acquired by the Pelicans as a free agent this summer, is still waiting for an opportunity to draw consistent minutes as a backup. He returned to Utah for Saturday night’s game against the Jazz hoping to get in his first game action since last week’s victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves. ''It's definitely tough,’’ said Fredette, who is averaging 2.8 points after six games. ''As a competitor you want to be out there on the floor and play. But ultimately that’s coaches decision.''

Fredette hoped to see more time in New Orleans this year but acknowledged before the game that it’s “definitely tough’’ not seeing more minutes. “As a competitor, you want to be out there on the floor,’’ Fredette said. “But ultimately it’s the coach’s decision. I hope I can get an opportunity just because I want to be out there playing. I just want to help the team as best as I can. But we’ll see what happens.'' Deseret News

He showed the Jazz an eyeful Saturday, scoring a career-high 43 points on 16-of-23 shooting with a team-high 14 rebounds. For good measure, he added a pair of steals and a blocked shot and played good defense against Utah’s big men, who collectively didn’t have one of their better nights. “Obviously Davis is a great player and he had a great game tonight,’’ said Utah coach Quin Snyder. “It’s a real challenge. You can’t give him easy baskets and he got some of those tonight.’’ Deseret News

Pelicans starting shooting guard Eric Gordon suffered a separated left shoulder in the second quarter on Saturday night after colliding into Utah Jazz guard Trey Burke. There is no timetable on Gordon's return, but it' another injury setback for the Pelicans. The Pelicans officially said Gordon suffered from a left shoulder subluxation, which is a displacement.

Although, at times, it appears as if Eric Gordon is an odd cog with the Pelicans, the front office and coaching staff still believe Gordon is a key piece to the team. He already is starting to show some of his worth after an extremely slow start to the season. New Orleans Times-Picayune

Rudy Gay went up to dunk over Anthony Davis on Tuesday night, and that was something that just wasn’t gonna happen. For our entertainment purposes, folks should try this more often. We’re running out of ways to talk about Davis’s freak-of-natureness, but every time the Pelicans play we get the special opportunity to see something new. The Big Lead

The avalanche of praise could be overwhelming and will surely shift if Davis fails to capture a championship by his seventh or eighth season, a phase James had to overcome and in which Durant currently exists. But Davis refuses to get caught up, lest it consume him to impatiently chase what might be unattainable or distract him from what he has already set out to accomplish. “I just go out there and play. What people expect of me? That’s on them,” Davis said, recently. “I don’t pay attention to all the stuff that they’re saying because that kind of messes with your head and you start getting complacent. That’s for the fans to read it and listen to it. My objective is to help this team win.” Washington Post
