Hey @Alexis Ajinca , Ca te dirait de venir nous donner de tes news sur Beinsports par Skype un de ces jours?

John Reid

Alexis Ajinca has mental coach to help him cope with uncertain rotation s.nola.com/4aDAH5L via @nolanews

Jason Calmes

Random stat of the night: Alexis Ajinca has 5 blocks.

Jim Eichenhofer

Alexis Ajinca has his career high in blocks with four. He had three blocks in a game five times. NOLA 73-70 at 7:30 of 4Q

Jason Calmes

Love Pondexter's communication defensively. Ajinca post up results in turnover. Wolves now even with Pels.

Jason Calmes

Ajinca offensively doing well. Also grabbing important defensive rebounds.

Nakia Hogan

Second unit the Pels have on court to start 2Q: PG Wolters, SG Pondexter, SF Babbitt, PF Cunningham, C Ajinca.

Jason Calmes

Nice pass to Ajinca there. Draws foul. He's been doing some nice things on offense. Pels down 18-16

John Reid

Good job by Monty Williams to put in Alexis Ajinca early in the game. He also needs to see what Jimmer Fredette can provide.

Jason Calmes

Ajinca is 2 of 5 from the stripe. Could be important as this game winds down. He'll need to sink his free throws.

Jason Calmes

Pelicans double Anthony and force a tough two. He misses. Free throws for Ajinca on the other end. 91-85 Knicks.

Jim Eichenhofer

Alexis Ajinca followed up two big games with a scoreless 1st half tonight, but starting to get going now. Has 7 pts in 2nd half. NY 86-80

Jason Calmes

Ajinca with a nice one dribble score as the roll man. Makes it, gets the foul, goes And One.

Jason Calmes

Ajinca unable to shoot over Amar'e. Airballs another Pelicans' shot.

Iñako Diaz-Guerra

Calderón también es un tipo duro. Pobre Ajinca... vine.co/v/OjY0A5XvQ0v

Jason Calmes

Ajinca unable to get inside on Jason Smith. Misses a midrange hook shot.

Jason Calmes

Now, I don't know if Ajinca would have been any better had Evans passed though. His coordination while moving worries me.

Jason Calmes

Ajinca sets a pretty good screen for Evans, had space on the roll to get the ball. Evans forces a shot instead.

Jason Calmes

Ajinca gets the ball and travels? Unsure of what the refs called there.

Jason Calmes

Ajinca misses the free throw.

Jason Calmes

Calderon charged with a flagrant foul on Ajinca after the refs reviewed it.

Jason Calmes

Oh wow that's a tough foul on Ajinca's face by Calderon. Refs reviewing to see if it gets bumped up.

John Reid

Looks like Alexis Ajinca got hit in the eye.

Jason Calmes

Knicks up 18 to 9. On a 7-0 run currently. Ajinca to the line to quell the bleeding.

Jason Calmes

This Ajinca/Amar'e battle should be pretty interesting.

Jason Calmes

Ajinca is the first sub in for the Pelicans. Not a surprise there.

John Reid

Alexis Ajinca enters for Pelicans

Jason Calmes

Monty Williams said before the game that the assistant coaches have been impressed with Ajinca in practice/workouts.

Jim Eichenhofer

Alexis Ajinca: "I was feeling great tonight. My teammates gave me the ball in the right situations. All I had to do was finish."

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans game-winner, Ajinca perhaps best game of NBA career lift #Pelicans over Raptors: on.nba.com/1B6O0ic http://t.co/pYXcF9o1ze

Tim Chisholm

Apr 13 game, the last time he wore he a uni RT @OutsiderNba: @Tim Chisholm What was your favorite Alex Ajinca moment, when he was a Raptor?

Nakia Hogan

Should Monty Williams think about increasing @Alexis Ajinca role? Maybe he should give it some thought.

Ryan Wolstat

JV on Ajinca career game (Greivis could barely say his name) "He was open at the basket. Maybe we didn't do good rotation with him."

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke on Ajinca: "Alexis played great tonight. Hell of a game from him. Being in the middle, finishing, making himself big."

Josh Lewenberg

Greivis Vasquez: "Alex Ajinca (A-jenk-a), whatever his name is just came over here and killed us"

Jason Calmes

95-93. Pels win off a game-winning shot from Evans. Ajinca MVP for the game, but the team still ride-or-die with Evans it seems.

Sean Highkin

Wilt Chamberlain was Alexis Ajinca 1.0.

Jim Eichenhofer

#Pelicans have outscored Raptors 29-22 in 4Q. Ajinca 10 of those pts, Gordon with 7. Tied again with 42 secs left at 93

Nakia Hogan

Who does Monty Williams draw this play up for? I say go with @Alexis Ajinca

John Reid

DeMar DeRozan makes both free throws with 42.6 after fouled by Alexis Ajinca to tie the score at 93.

Ryan Wolstat

The next time Raptors fans rail about the referees remember the Lowry charge and the Ajinca on DeRozan bailout that gave them a chance here.

Jason Calmes

Ajinca ties the game (and gets to a new career high with 22.). Then the next possession finds Asik for a dunk. #Ajincasance.

Sean Highkin

Alexis Ajinca messing me up in wack fantasy.

Nakia Hogan

Another big game for @Alexis Ajinca. He has a career-high 20 points. The Pelicans trail Raptors 87-85 with 2:56 to play.

Paul Jones

Ajinca with career high 20 pts Pelicans back to within 2 at 87-85 #Raptors lead with 2:56 to go #rtz I can hear the howls from Raps fans

Jim Eichenhofer

Things were looking fairly bleak a few minutes ago but #Pelicans have pulled within 87-85 with 2:56 left in 4Q. Ajinca absolutely huge today

John Reid

Alexis Ajinca makes both free throws to cut the lead to 87-85 with 2:56 remaining.

Jim Eichenhofer

Alexis Ajinca with his 2nd straight game of 16 points (still 6:39 left today). He averaged 4.1 ppg this season prior to that

Jason Calmes

Maybe the play of the game by Ajinca with that dribble drive and dunk. 78-73 Raps.
