Tyreke Evans registered back-to-back 25-and-8 games, the first time any New Orleans player had done that since March 2011
Rockets quit. Pelicans win 105-100. Good win. Good season because it was our season. Enjoy.
Pelicans up 105-100... 6-0 playing with energy. Don't foul, don't give up a 3, milk the clock. Other than that, let it happen.
Tyreke Evans drives in for layup for his 5th french-fry clinch of 2013-14, tying Anthony Davis. More importantly, gives Pels 101-100 lead
Anti-fries... Pelicans down 99-100, 2:48 to go.
In a Pelicans home schedule full of nail-biters, I'd expect nothing less than finale to go down to last 2 minutes. Rockets 100-99 at 2:48
Pelicans up 97-92 after Morrow goes for 3 the old-fashioned way. 4:30 to play.
Pelicans up 92-89, are rebounding better, fouling less, getting fouled, but turnover differential has shrunk to 7.
Things you may only see in Game 82: Dwight Howard setting up for and shooting a three-pointer near sideline. Had huge grin after missing
Pelicans up 80-78 and own turnover differential in their favor of 10. Fouling is an issue... 12 among the bigs in 48 player-minutes.
Anthony Morrow is always fired up. He just walked by scorer's table and yelled "Last 12 (minutes of season), baby!" to people sitting nearby
One of best shooting games of Austin Rivers' brief career. Has 16 points, with all but one of his baskets on Js. He's 4-5 on FTs, 2-3 treys
Coming off his 41-point game Monday vs. OKC, Tyreke Evans has 21 points. Evans had nine points in 1st half Monday, 10 in tonight's 1st half
Anthony Davis leads Pelicans obviously with 2.9 blocks per 36 minutes, but Jeff Withey not far back at 2.4. Has two more nice swats tonight
Pelicans up 53-50 at half. Turnovers are keeping them in this. They'll need better basketball if the turnover differential turns over.
Rockets down 4 despite committing 6 more turnovers thanks to doing the little things and rebounding big time.
There it is. Brian Roberts has 125 free throw makes on the season, enabling him to qualify for NBA individual title. He's 125-for-133
Pelicans 2012 draftees Darius Miller and Austin Rivers come out firing early, with 7 points each in first 9 minutes. All on jumpers
Pelicans are hustling, and it shows. 11-4 lead, 3 Rockets turnovers, 0 for Pelicans. Miller leads all scorers with 5 points on 3 shots.
There is a group of passionate Rockets fans in 120. Winning does wonders. Annoying, but I can't blame them. I do wish they would settle...
Will a video board malfunction at the SKC catalyze the purchase of a new system? Likely not, but who knows? http://t.co/cTW7zqXk94
During national anthem a group of Rockets fans yelled "ROCKETS!" during "rocket's red glare." Startled the kid's choir but they kept singing
Pelicans starters are Rivers, Evans, Miller, Withey, Ajinca. Reserves available: Roberts, Morrow, Southerland, Aminu, Babbitt, Ely
Yo, 42 covering the first last Pelicans game from the SKC. Any pregame questions or comments?
Even though I just got here...last game of the season is always hard to deal with
Oklahoma City's Serge Ibaka needs 16 blocks vs. Detroit tonight to surpass Anthony Davis for NBA lead in blocks average. Davis is at 2.82
"Difficulties in life are intended to make us better, not bitter." - Dan Reeves
Ryan Anderson and Anthony Davis played 15 games together (NOLA 9-6). Pelicans 12-10 in 22 games Anderson played, but Davis missed 7 of those
Pelicans general manager says Eric Gordon undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery today.
One of general themes of Dell Demps press conference: Pelicans didn't see core group together long enough to make broad/accurate analysis
Also, if you have any questions for a potential Pelicans Scoop, please send them as replies to this tweet.
Today is the last day of the season for the Pelicans. Are you sad or relieved?
Last night I was just on my game
Got to thank God for everything.
I'm a pelican, ya gotta let me fly!
By the way, good call on picking the cover subject for last night's game program: http://t.co/l5glFC3hG1
Melvin Ely on why Tyreke Evans is a tough matchup: "He has a football player’s body, a track star’s speed, and he can handle the ball."
Tyreke Evans broke franchise record for points in a half last night by scoring 32 in 2nd half. Previous best was David West 30 in a '08 game
Monty Williams with extraordinarily high praise in describing Tyreke Evans' 41-9-8 game: "It was a Magic Johnson night."
Anthony Morrow on Tyreke Evans (41-9-8): "It was one of the best performances I’ve ever seen from a teammate in my life. He put on a show."
Pelicans only had 10 players (including two they've signed since Friday), but Tyreke Evans' 41-9-8 line lifts NOLA to 101-89 upset vs. OKC
Darius Miller puts the finishing touch on a great Pelicans upset with a steal and breakaway dunk. NOLA up 100-89 with 15 seconds left
