Ryan Anderson

Want to thank @jrue_holiday11 and @jeffwithey for letting me celebrate an early Thanksgiving with both… instagram.com/p/v5GSBltVqQ/

Jim Eichenhofer

Figured we'd see a good amount of Jrue-Evans-Ryan-Davis-Asik lineup. They played some in 2nd qtr, but Jrue fouls prevented it in 3rd

Jim Eichenhofer

Bad break with Jrue Holiday picking up 4th foul at 9:14 of 3rd qtr. Probably will have to sit rest of period. Austin Rivers in. Sac 57-55

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans @Jrue Holiday picks up PF4 with 9:14 to go 3Q. @Austin Rivers in the game.

James Ham

Pelican starters: Jrue Holiday, Tyreke Evans, Darius Miller, Anthony Davis, Omer Asik.

John Reid

Pelicans starting lineup tonight: Omer Asik at center, Tyreke Evans at SG, Darius Miller at SF, Jrue Holiday at PG and Anthony Davis at PF.

Royce Young

Q&A: Jrue Holiday on the Pelicans' learning curve cbsprt.co/1uSEVs7

Jim Eichenhofer

Jrue Holiday on one of the areas Anthony Davis is excelling: "The mid-range shot is butter (for him). He can close his eyes and make that."

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis pours in career-best 43 points in NOLA win at Utah. Full recap, with more from AD, Monty, Jrue, Ryan: on.nba.com/1zbQcmd

Jim Eichenhofer

Jrue Holiday on why Anthony Davis is becoming so difficult to stop: "He has a counter to every (opposing defense's) counter."

Jim Eichenhofer

Jrue Holiday on whether that was Anthony Davis' best game: "I don't know. I've seen some good stuff. Obviously, he does not have a ceiling."

Jason Calmes

Jrue has been much better in the 2nd half. He now has 19-5-1 on 7-15 shooting.

Jim Eichenhofer

Jrue Holiday having big 2nd half, scoring 17 of his 19 points after intermission. Pelicans go back up 103-90 at 2:23

David Locke

Jrue Holliday with 7 of the last 9 points for the Pellys #NOPatUTA

Tony Jones

Jrue Holiday is a very good defender. Fast, strong, quick...Can see why he gives opposing pg's fits

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis just spun around a defender on baseline then threw down one-handed dunk on alley oop from Jrue. Utah fans wowed. Us too

Tony Jones

This whole Jazz run, NO hasn't given the ball to Anthony Davis once.....reek and Jrue need to realize who the man is

Jim Eichenhofer

Jrue Holiday quiet in 1st half but starting to heat up, with 7 quick pts. Has 9 pts, 6 assists, 4 rebounds in 20 minutes. NOLA 68-55 at 6:09

John Reid

Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday are a combined 2-of-8 from the field. Not good.

Tony Jones

Trey Burke just blocked Jrue Holiday's shot....nice start to this game on both ends

John Reid

Jrue Holiday is going have to defend Trey Burke tougher on the perimeter. He's made two straight 3-pointers.

John Reid

Tyreke Evans, Anthony Davis, Alexis Ajinca, Eric Gordon and Jrue Holiday are the Pelicans starters tonight against Jazz.

David Locke

#1 offensive 5 man unit in NBA is @New Orleans Pelicans Jrue Holiday, Eric Gordon, Tyreke Evans, Ryan Anderson and Anthony Davis 120 pts per 100

Jason Calmes

Jrue Rivers Tyreke Anderson Davis lineup in for the #Pelicans now. Arguably their most talented lineup with Asik out.

David Locke

The best offensive 5 man line-up in the NBA (min 50 mins) is Jrue Holliday, Eric Gordon, Tyreke Evans, Ryan Anderson and Anthony Davis

Sean Highkin

I don't think Jrue touched him.

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans comes up with 2 huge baskets, then Jrue Holiday gets key steal, followed by Anthony Davis 1-2 FTs. NOLA 103-97 at 0:28

John Reid

Bad pass by Austin Rivers-- leads to turnover and points by Kings.Where's Jrue Holiday or Tyreke Evans?

Jim Eichenhofer

Pelicans were cold early but have given themselves chances on O by only committing 3 turnovers. Another under-the-radar stat: Jrue 9 assists

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis now has 5 dunks, after one-handed finish of an alley oop from Jrue Holiday. Davis 24 points, 7 rebounds. NOLA 76-69 end 3rd Q

Jason Calmes

Jrue Holiday may have gotten stuffed there, but he also sped back down the court for the box-out & rebound on the other end. So much hustle.

Sean Cunningham

DeMarcus Cousins just chased down Jrue Holiday and blocked the layin attempt. Wow!!!!

Kerry Eggers

Pelicans Jrue Holliday and Tyreke Evans combined 0-for-14 in the 4th quarter tonight. Serves them right for having those first names

Erik Gundersen

Anthony Davis was 2-for-5 in the fourth. Tyreke and Jrue Holiday went 0-for-14.

Ben Golliver

Tyreke Evans, Jrue Holiday and Austin Rivers are a combined 0-8 in the fourth quarter. Poor Anthony Davis left to set high screens

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans have made just 4 of 16 FG attempts in the fourth quarter. Jrue Holiday is 0-for-5.

John Reid

Ball movement not like it was for first three quarters.Jrue Holiday finally back in for Austin Rivers

Jim Eichenhofer

Without Omer Asik tonight, scoring-rich lineup of Jrue, Gordon, Tyreke, Ryno and Anthony Davis turned game in NOLA's favor in 2nd qtr. 49-42

Jim Eichenhofer

Portland sloppiness (6 turnovers, several bad passes) helped NOLA's cause in 1st quarter. Blazers up 22-21. Jrue 8 pts, A.Davis 6 pts

Mike Richman

Somehow the Trail Blazers lead 22-21 after one quarter. Chris Kaman with 7 off the bench for Portland. Jrue Holiday has 8 for N.O.

Erik Gundersen

End of 1: Blazers 22, Pels 21. Kaman leads the Blazers with 7 points off the bench. Jrue Holiday with 8 for NOLA.

Jim Eichenhofer

Jrue Holiday continues to play well, starting 4-for-5 from field. During NOLA's recent offensive binge, he's 21-for-32 in last 2+ games

John Reid

Jrue Holiday playing well on both ends so far.

Jason Calmes

Jrue Holiday scores. Everyone who was standing up at home can sit down now.

Jim Eichenhofer

After being informed he missed 1 shot (9-for-10), Jrue Holiday said, "I'm mad at myself now! If I'd gone 9 of 9, that would've been sweet."

Jim Eichenhofer

Perhaps not realizing he was open, Jrue Holiday passed up layup to find Tyreke Evans for a 3-pointer. All net. It's been that kind of night

John Reid

Jrue Holiday is 5-of-5 from the field. Eric Gordon is 4-of-4 and Austin Rivers is 5-of-5 from the field, Pels have 69 points with 2:53 2Q

Jim Eichenhofer

Great presence of mind by Jrue Holiday to grab ball off floor and toss alley oop to Anthony Davis, for AD's 23rd dunk of '14-15. Pels 34-13

Jim Eichenhofer

Based on recent play, Jrue Holiday looks fully back from injury. Has 7 early points, 1 assist. Averaging 16.0 points, 7.5 ast last 4 games

Derek Bodner

Still can't believe Sam Hinkie denied us from watching a team that could have won 35 games with Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner, and Spencer Hawes
