Ben Bolch

Pelicans score first eight points of third quarter before Blake Griffin goes in for a layup.

Jason Calmes

Great pass from Gordon, great cut from Cunningham. 5 points for #Pelicans to start Q3, lead 58-54.

Jim Eichenhofer

#Pelicans open 3Q with Ryan Anderson three-pointer. NOLA has made eight treys; season most in that category is 15 vs. Wolves

Jason Calmes

A solid half for the #Pelicans w/o their top 2 players vs. the 3rd best team in the NBA, but lots of trends don't seem terribly sustainable.

Ralph Lawler

Another struggle on the road as the Clippers lead the Pelicans at the half in New Orleans 54-53. 2nd half challenge @FoxSportsWest

Jason Calmes

3 #Pelicans players are in double figures: 15 for Gordon, & 10 apiece for Anderson & Ajinca. Only 3 turnovers for NOLA so far (2 by Ajinca).

Melissa Rohlin

Halftime: Clippers 54, Pelicans 53

Jason Calmes

Halftime in New Orleans, with the #Pelicans trailing the #Clippers 54-53. Eric Gordon leads all scorers w/ 15 points on 5-9 shooting.

Arash Markazi

Halftime: Clippers 54, Pelicans 53. Blake Griffin with 11 points and J.J. Redick with 10 points.

John Reid

Pelicans trailing Clippers, 54-53, at halftime.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul driving layup gives Clippers 54-53 halftime lead over Pelicans. Blake Griffin leads Clippers with 11 points.

Jason Calmes

Excellent defense by the #Pelicans there. Smart double-teams, great rotations.

John Reid

Clippers have a 28-12 scoring edge in the paint against Pelicans.

Jason Calmes

Overall, I feel like the refs have helped the #Pelicans tonight. From what I've seen, it's crazy that the #Clippers have only taken 3 FTs.

John Reid

Two big 3-pointers by Ryan Anderson, Pelicans leading Clippers, 47-42.

Jim Eichenhofer

Ryan Anderson started cold but you still can't give him that much space. Nails two straight 3s. #Pelicans 47-42 at 4:13 of 2Q

Jason Calmes

Crawford's cold shooting from beyond the arc is really helping out the #Pelicans tonight.

John Reid

Pelicans outscored 6-0 right now in fastbreak points.

Jason Calmes

Great, great play out of the timeout for the #Pelicans. Wide open 3 for Q-Pon. Solid pass from Asik.

Jason Calmes

#Pelicans doing a great job on the offensive glass, even without Davis. 5 offensive rebounds vs. 9 defensive rebounds for the #Clippers.

Jason Calmes

After 1 quarter, the #Pelicans lead the #Clippers 28-26. Lots of fight from NOLA so far. Gordon & Q-Pon shooting well. Anderson 0-6 w/ 4 FT.

John Reid

Pelicans leading Clippers, 28-26, at end of first quarter. Ryan Anderson 0-of-6 from the field.

Ben Bolch

Clippers trail Pelicans, 28-26, after first quarter. J.J. Redick leads Clippers with eight points.

Jason Calmes

#Pelicans with the ball & 42 seconds left in the quarter. PLENTY of time for a 2-for-1... and, yeah, nope. But Q-Pon nails a three.

Jason Calmes

This is where the #Pelicans have to succeed if they have any chance to win tonight. #Clippers' bench is pretty bad after Crawford.

Jim Eichenhofer

We've had almost an All-Star Game tempo for parts of this 1st quarter. Eric Gordon 10 pts, pacing #Pelicans to 23-19 lead

Jason Calmes

Great activity there for the #Pelicans there. Forced the turnover, moved the ball, got a good look.

John Reid

Alexis Ajinca and Quincy Pondexter enter for Pelicans. Ajinca got to play well tonight.

Jimmy Smith

Quick burst to the basket there by @Eric Gordon, #Pelicans up 2.

Jim Eichenhofer

#Pelicans have been unhappy with a couple plays they believed were moving picks by Clippers. NOLA 9-6 at 7:50

Jason Calmes

#Pelicans got lucky there. Way too much space in the corner for Redick. Pels lead the #Clippers 9-6 just under 4 minutes into the game.

John Reid

It's early, but Pelicans leading Clippers 9-6. They start game making three of their first six shots. Dante Cunningham already with 4 pts.

Jason Calmes

Good evening, #Pelicans fans! @MasonGinsberg on the account tonight for our game vs. the #Clippers. No AD or Jrue, so this will be tough.

Jimmy Smith

Tonight's #Pelicans starters: Cunningham, Anderson, Asik, Gordon, Evans. No @Anthony Davis (groin strain).

John Reid

Still remember Austin Rivers' words after his option was not picked up this past October that he planned to make the Pelicans pay.

John Reid

Pelicans have lost seven of the past eight against the Clippers. And tonight they won't have Anthony Davis.

Ralph Lawler

Clippers seek 7th straight win tonight. They are in New Orleans to test the Pelicans at 5 on Fox Sports West. JJ Redick returns.

Jim Eichenhofer

Sean Highkin

Pelicans make the most sense for him. He has a relationship with Davis from Team USA. They offered him the job in 2010, too.
