New Orleans Pelicans Rumors
When New Orleans Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry thinks about the best two-way players in the NBA, he thinks about a guy on his own roster. He thinks about a player who has been a force at both ends in the Pelicans’ two playoff victories at Portland. He thinks about Jrue Holiday. “I may be a bit biased,” Gentry conceded, “but if you can tell me a better two-way player in the league right now, I’m willing to listen. But what we ask him to do and the things we ask him to do offensively, he was just great tonight.”
Bryan Kalbrosky: Spoke with Darren Collison, who mentioned UCLA teammate Jrue Holiday: “He’s real comfortable. He’s been doing it all season. I just think playoffs magnifies good play. Jrue is playing exceptionally well and he’s always been a good player.” #DoItBigger
Justin Kubatko: Anthony Davis is just the fifth player in NBA history to average at least 30 points and 10 rebounds per game in his first six playoff games. The others are Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Bob McAdoo.
