Monty going deep into bench tonight, with 12 of the 13 available players getting minutes, including Austin Rivers for 1st time since Sunday
I feel like Brian Roberts could turn this if he gets hot. Big if.
Tyreke Evans headed to the locker room with what appeared to be a left leg injury. In preseason, Evans missed games due to left ankle sprain
Incidentally, dating back to last season Ryan Anderson has made 30 consecutive free throws (he hit his last 3 in 2012-13 at Dallas)
Hard to believe Gordon didn't get that call...
Tough quarter so far. This is when a crowd can really boost their team properly motivated, but w/o AD its a lot harder to get people excited
Seeing how problematic it can be to get in fast-paced, shootout vs. OKC. Pelicans have 4 players in double figures at half but still down 6
I'd love to see a statistical analysis on the two for one, telling me everything possible about it's impact on team success.
Pelicans trailing at halftime, 58-52, to the Thunder.
That Westbrook three pointer really put a damper on things to end the half. CP3 used to rock that 2 and 1 like it was his job (which it was)
Russell Westbrook perfect execution of the 2-for-1, pulls up and quickly drains a 3 with 31 seconds left
Brian Roberts 2 made free throws reminds that Roberts (12-12) and Ryan Anderson (23-23) have not missed a foul shot all season in 35 tries
Pelicans' bench has already exceeded its scoring output from Wednesday, when it only managed 10 points vs. Mavs. Tyreke 9, Morrow 3
Nice to see the Pelicans taking advantage of the Evans-Fisher mismatch on offense.
That Anderson three there was only the second Pelicans FG in 10 minutes. Hard to believe professional basketball makers could get that cold.
Well this took a turn for the worse rather quickly. Heading into these Morrow free throws OKC is on a 21-4 run.
Jrue Holiday re-enters game after Thunder continued run against a Pelicans group that was without a true point guard. OKC 32-26
That's some solid help D by Withey right there. He's not going to go for 20-20 but if he can avoid mistakes and play solid D he'll play more
Earliest in a game we've seen Jeff Withey, who enters with 4 1/2 minutes to go in 1st quarter as first sub off the bench for NOLA
Pelicans already have enough for a highlight reel 7 minutes into game: Gordon 2 dunks, Aminu follow-up dunk, Jrue gorgeous reverse layup
Pelicans are looking really good so far, but they won't be shooting 80% forever. Gotta play well throughout to come away with a W tonight.
Eric Gordon with 2 athletic dunks in the first 5 minutes vs. Thunder. Showing serious spring. Gordon and Anderson combined 6-for-6 FGs early
If Ryno keeps this up he's going to reach Peja status with the fans. We might even give him four heads.
FYI Pelicans will hold a moment of silence prior to tonight's game vs. the Thunder for the passing of Nelson Mandela
OKC's Kevin Durant practicing his three-point touch a few hours before Thunder-Pelicans (7 p.m): http://t.co/fgEOIOXdBi
USA is in a tough group.. That was horrible luck
RIP Nelson Mandela. What an amazing leader and peacemaker.
Great man passed away. Sad day http://t.co/o8MeVZhUIa
Group texts. Simultaneously the best and worst creation in the history of the universe.
Side note: Al-Farouq Aminu officially finished with 20 rebounds. A basket/rebound on Shawn Marion's accidental wrong-basket tip was changed
There has to be reason why Al-Farouq Aminu has grabbed 20-plus rebounds in last 2 games vs. Mavs right? Dallas bigs lack some athleticism
Dirk Nowitzki said of Ryan Anderson's attempt at tying the game with a good look on a 3 that Anderson makes that shot 8 out of 10 times
Dirk Nowitzki entered tonight at 95% from foul line but has missed 2 in 6 attempts, incl. crucial 1 with 32 seconds left. Mavs up 1
Mavericks complaining about foul on DeJuan Blair, but you can't just jump on a player if he's on the floor. Good call by refs
Jrue Holiday has scored double-digit points in each half en route to 21 total mid 4th quarter. His high game as a Pelican is 24 pts
