#Pelicans could be in 8th by Sunday night, but will reside there by end of two-game road trip if they go 2-0, regardless of what OKC does

Jim Eichenhofer

Thunder were up double digits in 2nd half but lose in Portland 115-112. #Pelicans (31-27) only a half game behind OKC (32-27) for 8th place

Tyreke Evans: "We're not worried about a computer. We're worried about us playing basketball. I know the computer is smart, but..."

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans was informed by a writer (not me!) #Pelicans had 17% chance of making playoffs entering tonight, up from 10% earlier this week

Alexis Ajinca

What a great team win again I really love this team #PlayoffsWagon #GoPels #LoveThe42 @Quincy Pondexter @pg30_Cole http://t.co/xwT5F6cZIj

Jim Eichenhofer

Alexis Ajinca on scoring career-high 24 points vs. Miami: "It feels great. It feels even better when you win. This was a big win."

Jim Eichenhofer

Monty Williams on Alexis Ajinca and strides several Pels have made: "I’m just thankful that we have guys who work on their game every day.”

Jim Eichenhofer

Norris Cole... still undefeated. #sleeper Cole postgame: "These are the type of games we need, to get to the next step as a team."

Off to Denver tomorrow. #TakeFlight Question: Who's been the #Pelicans most improved player this season and why?

#Pelicans outscore Heat 31-20 in 4Q, rally for thrilling 104-102 victory, their 4th straight: on.nba.com/1GzNUSe http://t.co/NS0kDGN9hM

Jason Calmes

Pels win 4th straight. Ties the season high. This has been @cromaguerawrite. #pelicans.

Jim Eichenhofer

Unbelievable run this week continues for #Pelicans, this time nail-biting thriller over Heat. NOLA keeps winning w/o key guys. 4 in a row

John Reid

Pelicans pull out 104-102 victory against Heat after Dwyane Wade missed shot as time expired.

John Reid

Alexis Ajinca makes layup - Pelicans up 104-102 with 25.9 seconds. Nice pass from E. Gordon.

Jim Eichenhofer

Alexis Ajinca has his career high in scoring (24 pts) and what a time to get it, scoring the go-ahead layup with 25 seconds left. 104-102

Jim Eichenhofer

Will be interesting to see if #Pelicans go for quick score and get 2-for-1 with 36 seconds left. It's tied at 102

John Reid

Pels possession with 36.0 seconds left after shot-clock violation by Heat. Pelicans-Heat tied at 102.

Jimmy Smith

Shot clock violation #Heat, time out 36.0, #Pelicans MIA tied at 102.

#Pelicans No. 1, 3 and 4 scorers are injured. Evans (fouled out) is No. 2 scorer. NOLA trying to win without all of them. Tied at 0:38

Jimmy Smith

Time out 1:11 4Q, #Heat 102, #Pelicans 100; as suggested earlier a down-to-the wire finish coming up.

Jim Eichenhofer

Tough break for Tyreke Evans, who fouls out on charge at 1:23. He gets called for many of those partly because always goes all way to rim

John Reid

Tyreke Evans fouls out with 1:23 left on offensive charge call on drive to the basket.

John Reid

Henry Walker looks to be the real deal for the Heat. Big shots down the stretch.

John Reid

Pelicans trailing Heat 93-90 with 4:30 left in game.

Jim Eichenhofer

#Pelicans have already taken 12 free throws in 4Q, helping them tie it at 90. Quincy checks back in for Norris Cole

Babbitt and Beasley clash of the titans. #whereamazinghappens -CR

Jason Calmes

Heat in the penalty the rest of the way. That's huge. #pelicans -CR

Jimmy Smith

Unbelievably, #Pelicans in FT bonus final 9:26 of regulation after that foul on #Heat's Chris @OfficialChrisBM

Jim Eichenhofer

Heat already over the foul limit at 9:26 of 4Q. #Pelicans have 0 fouls. NOLA needs to capitalize and get to the line

John Reid

Pelicans start fourth quarter on 6-0 run to cut the Heat's lead to 82-79.

Jimmy Smith

Time out 9:51 4Q, #Heat 82, #Pelicans 79; 6-0 start to the quarter by NOLA.

Jimmy Smith

#Heat reserves on floor at outset of 4Q being outplayed by #Pelicans' subs.

Jim Eichenhofer

#Pelicans have not been outscored in 4Q at home since Feb. 7 vs. Bulls. Nice start as Alexis Ajinca throws down oop from Cole

John Reid

Pelicans trailing Heat 66-65 with 5:34 left in 3Q

Jim Eichenhofer

Tight one in NOLA. Biggest lead Heat 7, Pelicans 5. There have been 18 lead changes. NOLA may need bench to swing momentum. Mia 66-65

John Reid

Pelicans have not scored on five of their last six possessions.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans, #Heat tight game, statistically close in all categories and all the earmarks of a close finish.

John Reid

Tyreke Evans has three fouls but Monty Williams keeping him in game.

Jim Eichenhofer

Things getting a little chippy out there, starting with the Whiteside-Asik tiff. Whiteside had some words for Asik after last hoop

John Reid

Hassan Whiteside not showing much respect for Omer Asik, getting inside position and scoring.

John Reid

Pelicans did a better defending Goran Dragic in the second quarter than the first when he scored 12 points. He scored two points in 2Q.

John Reid

Pelicans guard Norris Cole missed all five shots attempted in the first half against his former team and was held scoreless.

Jason Calmes

Heat 9-0 when Deng scores more than 20 points. (15 at the half.)

John Reid

Halftime: Pelicans 54, Heat 54.

John Reid

Pelicans trailed by as much as seven in 2Q, but have battled back to tie score at 54 with 3.5 seconds left.

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans' scoring numbers have been relatively modest with key guys out, but he's had a parade of five layups tonight and nailed a trey.

Jason Calmes

Tyreke and Wade don't seem to care who's defending the rim. @New Orleans Pelicans -CR

John Reid

Pelicans have went scoreless on four consecutive possessions.

Jimmy Smith

#Heat 4/7 from 3-PT range with 4:13 to go 2Q; #Pelicans 3/9.
