Players and staff boarded the bus, sweats on and shoes in hand, expecting to pull up at a gym. Instead, they disembarked in front of a bowling alley. Coach Monty Williams called an audible, hoping the change in routine would give his inconsistent team some spark. "It was really a wonderful surprise," said Alexis Ajinca, who scored a career high 22 points off the bench. "We laughed and relaxed with each other. It helped us mentally re-set." FoxSports.com

The New Orleans Pelicans have signed point guard Nate Wolters to a 10-day contract. The signing, announced Wednesday, comes as starting point guard Jrue Holiday deals with a right ankle injury that will sideline him for Wednesday night's game in Detroit. NBA.com

Charles F. Gardner: Former Bucks guard Nate Wolters has signed a 10-day contract with the New Orleans Pelicans. Wolters cleared waivers after being released. Wolters will be available for Pelicans' game tonight in Detroit against Pistons. He will wear No. 34. That's a quick turnaround for Nate. Twitter @cf_gardner

Pondexter also has changed, from a 22-year-old first-round pick fresh out of college to a fifth-year veteran with over 200 games of NBA experience, including 25 playoff games. That ranks him fourth on the Pelicans for most postseason experience, behind only Omer Asik (33 games) and John Salmons (28). “I’ve grown up a lot. I’ve matured,” Pondexter said. “On this team I’ll probably be more of a veteran than most of the guys. I’ve seen what it takes to win games. I’ve went to the Western Conference finals. I’ve been to the playoffs every year since. Memphis taught me a lot. It was truly a blessing. Hopefully I can bring those winning ways to New Orleans.” NBA.com
