John Reid

Pelicans close out final 3:34 of second quarter on a 9-2 run.

Jason Calmes

Pelicans are up 7 at halftime. 46-39. Both Harden and Howard have struggled.

John Reid

Pelicans leading Rockets 46-39 at halftime. A. Davis has 19 points. James Harden has 10 for Rockets.

David Hardisty

At half, Pelicans 46, Rockets 39. Dwight picks up his 3rd foul just before the horn. Davis, Asik have more boards (17) than Rockets do (15).

Jason Calmes

With a little over 2 minutes left in the half, the Pelicans are up over the Rockets 41-37.

John Reid

Neither the Pelicans nor Rockets have led by more than four points in the first half.

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis (17 pts/9 reb/2 blk) nearly has a double-double with 2:15 left in 2Q. He's 6-9 FGs, 5-6 FTs. Pelicans lead 41-37

John Reid

Wow - nice spin move to the basket by Jrue Holiday to put the Pelicans up by 39-37.

Jason Calmes

Whoa there Rivers. Take it easy with all those muscles. 5th turnover for the Pelicans tonight.

Eric Gordon

Back in NOLA rehabbing so decided to catch game w/ #Pelicans fan at the @Jason Calmes watch party at @TraceysNola http://t.co/JmAWAjFEcH

John Reid

Pelicans playing Rockets tough so far, especially Ryan Anderson. Going to the basket more tonight. Off to 4-of-5 start, no 3s attempted yet

Jason Calmes

The Rockets are up 2 with 8:21 to play in the second. The Pelicans are sticking in there. Have to hope fresher legs prevail tonight.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans John Salmons 0/5 tonight in 9 minutes on the floor.

John Reid

It shows the Pelicans are a much better team with Omer Asik, they don't have to double Dwight Howard in the post. Asik can defend him alone.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans wanted goal-tend call; Withey getting 2 FTs instead.

Jimmy Smith

How's this for a #Pelicans' 5: Anderson, Withey, Cunningham, Salmons, Rivers.

Jason Calmes

At the end of the 1st, Rockets lead the Pelicans 22-21.

John Reid

End of first quarter - Rockets leading Pelicans 22-21. Pelicans 0-of-4 from behind the 3-point line.

John Reid

Anthony Davis has scored 13 of the Pelicans' first 17 points.

Jim Eichenhofer

Key for #Pelicans guards to stay out of foul trouble vs. the crafty James Harden. Still 0 fouls on NOLA. Anthony Davis 12 pts/5-6 FGs/5 reb

Jimmy Smith

Interesting defensive switch by #Pelicans left @Anthony Davis on PG Patrick Beverley. Beverley got the layup.

Jason Calmes

Anthony Davis is already having a night. He has 10 of the Pelicans first 12 points. Also has 3 rebounds.

John Reid

Anthony Davis has scored the Pelicans' first six points. He's going to need help tonight.

John Reid

Pelicans better get out on those Rockets' shooters a little quicker on the perimeter.

Jimmy Smith

#Rockets wearing red throwback unis recalling championship days; #Pelicans in their home whites.

John Reid

Another note about Pelicans' Omer Asik - he's always the first player out of the locker room after games. Going to see if it happens tonight

Jonathan Feigen

Shocking. RT @Jimmy Smith: @Omer Asik returns to Houston for the first time since joining #Pelicans. Has declined to speak about it.

John Reid

It appears the Pelicans are just taking a cautious approach with Tyreke Evans. Don't think nothing major here, but he's had some swelling.

John Reid

Tyreke Evans had averaged 28.0 points over the last three games. Pelicans got to find some way to make up for that scoring loss tonight.

John Reid

Pelicans hoping they can continue emerging with their high-scoring offensive attack s.nola.com/OlrqFAN via @nolanews

Jimmy Smith

Tonight's #Pelicans starters: Babbitt, Davis, Asik, Rivers, Holiday. No Evans (knee contusion).

Sean Kelley

How hot is Ryan Anderson right now? He's 16-32 from 3 pt in last 3 games -- 24.3ppg #Pelicans

Sean Kelley

Austin Rivers will start for the @New Orleans Pelicans with Evans out. This is Rivers 3rd start of season. L5 gms = 8.8ppg 47%fg off bench.

Sean Kelley

Not having Tyreke Evans tonight stings. He's 28 ppg in his last 3 games. #Pelicans

Sean Kelley

The @New Orleans Pelicans have scored 47% of total points in the paint thru first 24 games. 7 str games scoring 100+ ties a fran record.

Nakia Hogan

#Pelicans will be without SG Tyreke Evans (knee) tonight vs. Rockets.

Jason Calmes

Wanna talk Pelicans? @NOLAJake just walled into @TraceysNola. Come by to watch the game!

Jim Eichenhofer

Incidentally, Pelicans wearing their white uniforms tonight (Rockets are in red and yellow alternates). NOLA 6-3 in white, 3-3 red, 3-6 blue

Jim Eichenhofer

Next 4 days for Pelicans: at Houston, vs. Blazers (Saturday), at OKC (Sunday). Between Christmas and New Year's, play Spurs twice

Jason Calmes

We'll have our writers at @TraceysNola in about an hour to talk Pelicans before the game tonight. See you there!

Jeff Zillgitt

Perceived as sellers, Celtics have received inquiries about Jeff Green from Clippers, Pelicans, Grizzlies but Cs not interested in offers.

John Reid

Pelicans' Tyreke Evans listed as questionable against Rockets because of right knee contusion s.nola.com/YGhbQci via @nolanews

Jim Eichenhofer
