Pelicans PG Jrue Holiday said he required 5 stitches for cut over right eye. Only protection he'll wear Saturday vs. Mavericks is a Band-Aid

Jrue Holiday on Anthony Davis' 26-17-9 in a win on Opening Night: "“That’s AD. He gets better and better.”

Lang Greene

Pelicans Top Six guys are strong: Jrue, EG, Tyreke, Brow, Asik and Ryan Anderson. After that the bench leaves much to be desired

Nakia Hogan

Jim Eichenhofer

Jrue Holiday is in locker room getting stitches after colliding with Elfrid Payton. Has cut over right eye. Probable to return

Jim Eichenhofer

Jrue Holiday, who is at "80 percent" in his return from injury, missed a couple layups early and still gaining back timing (3-for-9, 6 pts)

Jason Calmes

Jrue with back to back baskets. He's handling the ball more in the second half.

David Thorpe

If Jrue Holiday isn't trying to dominate games, he's just an average player. It's when he attacks relentlessly that he can be special.

Jimmy Smith

Rough shooting night continues for @Jrue Holiday: he's 1/6 right now.

Alex Kennedy

Things can always change (Jrue Holiday was at a similar position before he got extended), but it's unlikely. Tobias Harris likely to be RFA.

John Reid

In the second half, Pelicans are going to need more scoring help from Eric Gordon and Jrue Holiday. They combined for 7 pts in first half.

Beverley really messing w Jrue Holiday again. Has forced 4 tos in 7 min, but has to sit with 5 fouls. Likely knew his night was almost over.

Pelicans should bottle some of this shooting for the regular season. They're 16-for-21. Davis, Asik, Jrue, Babbitt are combined 13-for-14

Jim Eichenhofer
