Omer Asik (calf strain) tallied 6pts/14reb in 19 minutes, but doubtful to return. Alexis Ajinca (8 pts/7 reb) will need to come up big again

Alexis Ajinca rewarding #Pelicans for bringing him back to NBA for second stint. Story: on.nba.com/1Ff8loQ http://t.co/cQm8u78pto

Jim Eichenhofer

Norris Cole fills in superbly for Tyreke. Omer Asik (12 pts/15 reb) a demon in paint. Alexis Ajinca playing like Kevin McHale. Splendid game

Lenn Robbins

Sergey Karasev's knee seemed to buckle after colliding w Alexis Ajinca..He is being carried to the locker room. A terrible night for #nets

Tim Bontemps

Sergey Karasev caught his leg on an Alexis Ajinca screen and it buckled in a very unnatural way. Ugly to see.

Alex Raskin

Sergey Karasev is in. Alexei Ajinca scores anyway. #Pelicans up 80-61 over #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams just tried to posterize Alexis Ajinca, but couldn't get the dunk down. Nets trail 78-61 after three.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets down 55-46 at the half. Lopez with 15 points, 6 boards. Alexis Ajinca went to town on Mason Plumlee & Pels backcourt outplayed BKN’s.

Tim Bontemps

Pelicans ended the half on a 44-21 run, now lead 55-46. Alexis Ajinca has 13, Eric Gordon 11, Norris Cole 10. Brook Lopez has 15 for Nets.

John Reid

Pelicans got their backups to thank, especially Alexis Ajinca, for getting back in game in the second quarter.

Tim Bontemps

So Brook Lopez has 14 points and Alexis Ajinca has 13. Nets lead 44-42 with 3:50 left in first half.

Alex Raskin

Alexis Ajinca, who did not jump, just had his shot blocked by Brook Lopez, who also declined to jump. #Nets up 42-40. #Pelicans

Devin Kharpertian

Alexis Ajinca took what Mason Plumlee gave him. Mason Plumlee gave him a lot.

Jim Eichenhofer

It's been an Alexis Ajinca clinic in 2Q. It's all coming together for the 7-2 center, who has above-average skill and shooting touch for big
