Lang Greene

I want to commit to Pelicans making a run at playoff spot out West, but Jimmer Fredette and Austin Rivers combined for 38 mins tonight

Jim Eichenhofer

Monster performance by Anthony Davis leads Pelicans to 101-84 opening win vs. Magic. To comment on game, go here: on.nba.com/1oYhxbD

Roberto Martin

Final @New Orleans Pelicans 101-@Orlando Magic 84. Anthony Davis quedó a un dígito del triple-doble: 26pts+17reb+2as+9blq+3rec. #NBA

Jason Calmes

Pelicans win 111-84. Wasn't a perfect game, but so much to be excited about.

Iñako Diaz-Guerra

Davis, a un tapón del triple-doble: 26-17-9, impresionante... Y claro, ganan los Pelicans a los Magic 101-84 es.global.nba.com/boxscore/#!/00…

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans beat Magic 101-84 behind a dominating performance from Anthony Davis: 26 points, 17reb., 9 blocks.

Alex Kennedy

I love the Pelicans’ frontcourt. Anthony Davis, Omer Asik and Ryan Anderson combined for 62 points, 43 rebounds (23 offensive), 14 blocks.

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis done for the night with 26 points, 17 rebounds, 9 blocks. Pelicans up 21 with 2:00 left

Andrew Sharp

At least 50% of the Pelicans offense is just Tyreke Evans throwing himself at the rim and someone scoring off the rebound

John Reid

Monty Williams brings in his backups with the Pelicans leading 97-74.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans subs in: no triple-double for @Anthony Davis stuck on 9 blocks.

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis drains 1 free throw to give Pelicans 87-72 lead with 6:39 left. Davis now has 23 points, 15 rebounds, 8 blocks. Ridiculous

Josh Robbins

Consider this: The Magic trail 87-72, yet the Pelicans still are just 11 of 25 from the free-throw line.

Jason Calmes

Now, all 3 big are in for Pelicans. It'll be interesting to see how this works on offense. Will they let Ryno man up or run a zone.

Yannis Koutroupis

That moment when you start to really like the Pelicans, then their reserve backcourt of Jimmer Fredette and Austin Rivers comes in.

Devin Kharpertian

BTW, that team that averaged 6.4 blocks? The Pelicans. Only one other team (Thunder, 6.1) averaged more than six per game.

I'll be doing a #Pelicans chat on NOLA.com Wed. at 10:30 am. Here's the link. bit.ly/1tg3luH

Brett Pollakoff

Three straight threes from Ryan Anderson to end the 3rd, and Pelicans lead by 12.

Jason Calmes

That little burst gives the Pelicans a 14 point lead at the end of 3 quarters, and it is why I love three point shooters.

John Denton

Former @Orlando Magic F @Ryan Anderson puts on a shooting show by making three straight 3s to put @New Orleans Pelicans up 78-64 at end of 3rd Q.

Kevin Pelton

And there's the Pelicans surge that seemed to be coming all night. Up 14 after 3.

Nakia Hogan

So much for a poor shooting night. Ryan Anderson ends 3Q with three straight 3-pointers and Pelicans take a 78-64 lead.

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans PG Jrue Holiday has an abrasion over his right eye and needed stitches. He is probable to return.

John Reid

Magic much tougher opponent than the Pelicans expected.

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans reserves are having a rough night from the field. They have made just 5 of 22 attempts.

Evan Dunlap

Noteworthy from Magic/Pelicans: near the end of the third quarter, Maurice Harkless has a DNP-CD.

Evan Dunlap

22 ORebs in 52 chances will do that RT @ZachOliverNBA Pelicans have attempted 20 more shots than the Magic have already.

Jimmy Smith

Right now, #Pelicans' Gordon, Holiday, Anderson, Fredette are combined 9/35 from the field; 2:30 to go 3Q, NOLA up 63-61.

John Reid

Pelicans still struggllng to get offensive production from their bench.

Jimmy Smith

That was a determined follow slam by @Anthony Davis; #Pelicans up 58-55 5:40 3Q.

Yannis Koutroupis

Here's why the Pelicans should stick to basketball, not acting: basketballinsiders.com/nba-video-peli…

John Reid

Magic not backing down. It's catching the Pelicans on switches and knocking down shots.

Sean Highkin

Every time I glance over at Magic-Pelicans Anthony Davis is dunking.

Royce Young

The Pelicans' cooking intro is your early leader for weirdest league pass moment. cbsprt.co/1zGCSuE

John Reid

Pelicans only got eight points from their bench. Ryan Anderson had six.

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.

John Reid

Pelicans outscored the Magic 24-16 in the second quarter.

Jim Eichenhofer

FYI Pelicans set franchise record with 18 blocks in a game vs. Bobcats last season. NOLA had 8 in first half (Davis 4, Asik 2)

Jim Eichenhofer

Bad news: Pelicans shot terribly in 1st half (39% from field, 1-for-9 on treys, 3-for-14 on free throws). Good news: they still lead 48-41

Iñako Diaz-Guerra

48-41 para Pelicans al descanso vs Magic. Duelo Vucevic (11p-14r)-Davis (12-9) en la pintura es.global.nba.com/boxscore/#!/00… #EverybodyUp

Nakia Hogan

Halftime: Pelicans 48, Magic 41. The lead should be bigger, but Pelicans are just 3-of-14 on free throws and 1-of-9 on 3-pointers.

Jason Calmes

Pelicans are up 7 at halftime despite shooting 39% from the field and 21% from the free throw line.

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis' D must be rubbing off on Pelicans guards Jrue Holiday and Eric Gordon. Both had mean-spirited blocks of Magic shots in half

John Reid

Pelicans leading Magic, 48-41, at halftime.

Josh Robbins

The Pelicans have 20 second-chance points and lead the Magic 48-41 at halftime.
