Colts run game this preseason has been dreadful. Clearly trying to get it going but to no avail.
Luck is a beast to try and bring down.
Saints penalties are down this week, but the flags tonight have come at bad times
How about perennial pro bowler Champ Bailey on one side and rookie SJB on the other for Saints at corner
McCown with 2 big scrambles on this drive. 28 yards on this one to IND 20
Bryce Harris now in with Lelito, Kelemete, Jones, Armstead on O line
McCown stays in at QB as NO takes over at own 11. 17-7 Saints
Gallette appears to be OK
Brees appears done as McCown takes over early 2nd Q
Saints 1st team D back on field. Luck and 1st team O back out for IND
Great pass pro pickup for big block by Cadet protecting Brees, but Pass Int penalty on Colston kills play.
Hicks with consec penalties have IND all the way to NO 26.
Saints drive stalls at own 25. Morstead to punt.
Brees with nice check down to Thomas for gain of 4 and first down
Huge ovation as Colts go right to Wayne on first play, but offside call on offense takes the joy away.
Glassed-in press box takes away that "you're there feeling" Boo
Brees scrambles for 10 and 1st down. 1st and goal at 3
Brees connects with Pierre for first completion and 19 yards.
Anthony Davis scores 10 points and grabs five rebounds in Team USA's 112-86 victory against Puerto Rico on Friday night.
Unique matchup with 21-year-old Anthony Davis in low post vs. 38-year-old Daniel Santiago, who last played in NBA in '05. He's 7-1, 256
Anthony Davis swats shot into 3rd row, prompting ESPN2's Fran Fraschilla to comment: "He's got a chance to be the next great player."
Anthony Davis on floor to start 4th quarter for USA. Davis has 9 points (3-6 FGs, 3-4 FTs) in about 18 minutes of action. USA 91-69 at 8:35
Anthony Davis (2 pts) 9 minutes in 1st half, partly due to 2 early fouls. USA takes 52-47 lead at halftime on Klay Thompson buzzer-beating 3
Anthony Davis checked back in the game at 5:47 of 2nd quarter, with 2 fouls. You only get 5 in FIBA. USA lead is just 34-31 on P.R.
Puerto Rico was impressive in 1st quarter, is tied with USA at 24. NBA vets J.J. Barea and Carlos Arroyo doing some damage
Anthony Davis/Stephen Curry both 2 early fouls for USA, which leads 14-13 at 4:29 of 1st Q vs. Puerto Rico. AD 2 pts on follow dunk, 1-3 FGs
See y'all in the Garden tonight! http://t.co/Pb2U8kKuVx

Heading back to New Orleans for the year. Ready to get to work!
Pelicans rookie guard Russ Smith should love New Orleans' preseason schedule. His first NBA game will be Oct. 4 in Louisville (vs. Heat)
NBA TV has used the USA assistant coaches for between-quarters TV interviews... somewhere a light bulb flashes on in Gregg Popovich's head
USA leads 80-45 after three quarters. Anthony Davis 7 points on 3-for-6 shooting. Only played a couple minutes in 3rd qtr
I agree with Steve Smith that NBA goaltend rules are better than FIBA's, but Anthony Davis might average 8 blocks a game with FIBA rules
Watching USA Basketball and Anthony Davis making his presence felt defensively with several blocks against the Dominican Republic.
NBA TV's Grant Hill: "I believe Anthony Davis is the most important player on the USA team... (especially) when they (play) Spain."
USA leads 53-31 at halftime. Anthony Davis played sparingly in 2nd quarter, as Americans doubled edge from 11 to 22 points
USA vs. Dominican Republic should get nice TV ratings in Bluegrass State. DR has two Louisville + two Kentucky players. USA has two UK guys
About only area USA didn't excel in 1st quarter was converting transition alley oops (0-for-2). USA up 28-17; Anthony Davis 5 points
Nice end-to-end sequence for Anthony Davis, with him blocking Francisco Garcia on D, then dropping in athletic half-hook. AD 5 pts in 3:28
It took 12 seconds for Anthony Davis to get on the scoreboard tonight, hitting an 18-footer for USA to make it 2-0 over Dom. Republic
Team USA in the Garden tonight!!
Odd Pelicans schedule fact: NOLA plays 12 of the other 14 Western Conference teams on the road by Dec. 21 (all in first 27 overall games)
