By the way, good call on picking the cover subject for last night's game program: http://t.co/l5glFC3hG1

Jim Eichenhofer

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."

Jim Eichenhofer

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

"@UberFacts: Hugging for 20 seconds releases oxytocin, which can cause you to trust someone more." Can someone give me a hug?

Jason Smith

Awesome win for the guys tonight. Our hard work finally paid off and we have one final game. Lets finish strong #Pelicans!

Recap, Tyreke Evans plays best game of career (41pts/9reb/8ast) to lift NOLA's 10-man squad to 101-89 upset over OKC: on.nba.com/QmBgB6

Jim Eichenhofer

Monty Williams with extraordinarily high praise in describing Tyreke Evans' 41-9-8 game: "It was a Magic Johnson night."

Jim Eichenhofer

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."

Jim Eichenhofer

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

Jim Eichenhofer

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

Jason Calmes

Evans so far-- 41 pts on 26 shots, 9 rebs, 8 asts, 3 steals, 1 TO. His fellow starters are all 2nd round picks and replacement level players

John Reid

Tyreke Evans has a career-high 41 points. The Pelicans on verge of upsetting the Thunder. s.nola.com/q9wfR3Q

Jason Calmes

Babbit FOR THREE! Huge ball right there following the Durant trey.

Jim Eichenhofer

Good luck Derek Fisher stopping Tyreke Evans tonight one-on-one. Another great move by Evans gives him 41 points

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans has a new career high with 37 points. He reached it by draining a straightaway three-pointer

Jason Calmes

Tyreke Evans, I think I love you.

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans (30 points) has the 11th 30-point game of his NBA career. His career high in scoring 35 points, set with Kings in Jan. 2011

John Reid

Pelicans trailed by a 34-point deficit at this point last Friday against the Thunder. Tonight, they are... s.nola.com/YmJB2nV

Jason Calmes

Nice to see Morrow follow with a triple, but I'd like to get another look at that "block".

Jason Calmes

That was a huge swing right there. Instead of a dunk and a 5 point dif the Thunder block/goaltend it and take it the other way to make it 1

Jason Calmes

Scratch that. Tell me in about 30 minutes. I prefer him missing in action until then.

Jason Calmes

Who is number 35 and what did he do with Kevin Durant?

Jason Calmes

I think this is the Tyreke Evans that was supposed to lead our second unit this year and finish games with the starters.

Jim Eichenhofer

I like the way Jeff Withey almost always takes the ball extremely strong to the basket. He's been going for dunks often lately

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans is 8-for-16 from the field through three quarters, staking Pelicans to 70-69 lead over OKC. All eight Evans baskets are layups

John Reid

Pelicans still hanging tough against Thunder- leading 70-69 at the end of three quarters. s.nola.com/SxsOO1g

Jason Calmes

Durant just took his first free throws of the night. He averages 9.9 per game so far this season.

Jason Calmes

Pelicans started off 3-8 from the 3-pt line. They're just 1-12 since.

Jason Calmes

Caron Butler? Cmon...

John Reid

Eight minutes into the third quarter, the Pelicans have held the Thunder to just 10 points in the third... s.nola.com/swTOTsU

Jim Eichenhofer

OKC having major trouble trying to keep Tyreke Evans (16 points, 10 free-throw attempts) from getting to rim. He also has 5 assists

Jason Calmes

Tyreke Evans has done a great job getting to the hoop tonight. Pels would be in trouble without him, especially with Rivers out.

Jimmy Smith

#Thunder could clinch West 2-seed with win, but doesn't seem engaged vs. #Pelicans tonight. s.nola.com/IWNBWdE

Jason Calmes

Great hook shot there by Withey.

Jim Eichenhofer

Pretty impressive defensive play by Alexis Ajinca to strip Kevin Durant, even though they called a foul on Ajinca, his 4th

John Reid

Pelicans and Thunder have combined for 9-of-30 shooting from 3-point range. s.nola.com/8YdkzUY

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans is so eager to lead fast breaks that he was upset Derek Fisher's airball meant OKC shot-clock violation. Wanted to push ball

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans Tyreke Evans just scored on a 1-on-3 fast-break, and converted the FT for 3-PT play. s.nola.com/WVF2ukj

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Morrow starts the 2nd half in place of ejected Austin Rivers. May need a big 2nd half from Morrow, but he's done that a lot lately

Jason Calmes

Odds that Durant has another half without scoring double digits?

Jason Calmes

Thunder lead 46-45. Pels had just 5 turnovers 6 personal fouls. They'll need to keep playing smart ball to pull this one off.

Ryan Anderson

I asked my buddy how he was gonna handle having his 4th kid... This was his answer

Jason Calmes

Great job running the floor there by Tyreke. If you're looking for two reasons the Pelicans are still in this one they're Tyreke and Ajinca.

John Reid

Pelicans center Alexis Ajinca still perfect - making all four shots for eight points against Thunder. s.nola.com/IQkJmlc

Jason Calmes

The blood moon is apparently causing some problems internally.

Jason Calmes

.@Alexis Ajinca has played well tonight. That's one of Dell's best deals of the year. Apologies for the last one. Misread a chart.

Jimmy Smith

For those wondering, #Pelicans Alexis Ajinca signed 2-YR guaranteed deal with team. s.nola.com/mBBa6Sd

John Reid

Pelicans' Tyreke Evans doing a better job attacking the basket than he did Friday night against the Thunder. s.nola.com/u97sIzD

Ryan Anderson

Can you do the thizzle dance?

Jim Eichenhofer

Keep in mind Tyreke Evans was late add to lineup. Didn't look good physically in shootaround. Pelicans don't have another point guard left

John Reid

With Austin Rivers' ejection, the Pelicans now have only nine available players. s.nola.com/oOTrko

Jimmy Smith

This means Tyreke Evans will be #Pelicans only available PG rest of this game; 7:56 to go 2Q. s.nola.com/6fzUTAR

Jim Eichenhofer

Austin Rivers and Nick Collison both ejected for what was termed "fighting fouls." Tyreke Evans will have to play a lot of point guard

Jimmy Smith

Both Rivers and Collison ejected for "fighting" technicals. Don't know about that one. s.nola.com/kmIb3dP

John Reid

Pelicans' Austin Rivers and Thunder's Nick Collison had to be separated. s.nola.com/IkgeTaa

Jason Calmes

Instead of double technicals, players should rock-paper-scissors for who avoids it.

Jimmy Smith

Officials sorting out this Austin Rivers/Nick Collison dustup. Could be the old double-technicals looming. s.nola.com/okOliSL

John Reid

Almost four minutes into the second quarter, the Pelicans are shooting out 50 percent from the field against... s.nola.com/AyXfbOG

Jim Eichenhofer

Luke Babbitt 8-for-14 on three-pointers since getting big minutes last week vs. Suns. He's coming off career-best 24-point game at Houston

Jason Calmes

You really gotta give Babbitt some credit-- he has great hair.

Jason Calmes

Note to Austin Rivers-- If the shot clock is winding down you don't EVER give the ball to Melvin Ely unless he's within 3 feet of the hoop.

John Reid

Pelicans held the Thunder without a fastbreak point in the first quarter. s.nola.com/Yy5LJ0X

Jim Eichenhofer

Austin Rivers (8 points) off to good start again tonight vs. OKC. He averaged 19.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 5.5 assists in his 2 weekend starts

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans allowed #Thunder 30 1Q points on Friday night in OKC. s.nola.com/urq5NcN

Jason Calmes

Pelicans threw up 9 three point attempts in that first quarter. They average only 15.8 per game on the season.

John Reid

Pelicans hanging tough so far - take 23-21 lead after first quarter against the Thunder. s.nola.com/KrRkUcP

Jason Calmes

Some good ball movement there by the Pels. Love the bullet pass from Babbit to Aminu. Kinda surprised he held on.

Jim Eichenhofer

Melvin Ely begins 2nd stint with New Orleans by throwing down dunk. He was smiling at scorer's table; they used same audio clip from '07-09

John Reid

Pelicans newly acquired Melvin Ely already in game before first quarter ends. s.nola.com/a3vCGEH

Jason Calmes

Any else feeling a bit nostalgic watching former Hornet Melvin Ely on the court in New Orleans?

Jim Eichenhofer

FYI Serge Ibaka needs total of 17 blocks in tonight's game and Wednesday vs. Detroit to surpass Anthony Davis for No. 1 in NBA in average

John Reid

Thunder forward Serge Ibaka has started game hitting 4-of-5 shots against Pelicans; Kevin Durant has made... s.nola.com/gscbhkV

Jimmy Smith

Nine minutes into 1Q, #Pelicans and #Thunder tied at 17. Can it last? s.nola.com/ufMukWe

Jason Calmes

Pels appear to be content to let it fly from downtown tonight. Probably a good move since Evans is doing a good job penetrating so far.

John Reid

After seven minutes, Pelicans 'Tyreke Evans already has three assists. s.nola.com/CBW3mPK

Jim Eichenhofer

Darius Miller was a very reluctant shooter as a rookie, but is showing much more aggressiveness. Already taken 6 shots in 8:20 of action

Jason Calmes

Thunder have had solid ball movement so far. All six of their buckets have been assisted.

John Reid

Thunder forward Kevin Durant hears cheers after he makes 3-pointer to put the Thunder ahead 13-12 against... s.nola.com/ccJYmCT

Jim Eichenhofer

Alexis Ajinca shows his above-average mobility for a 7-2 guy with a dribble drive and massive dunk past and over Kendrick Perkins

Jason Calmes

AJINCA WITH AUTHORITY!

John Reid

Tyreke Evans back in the starting lineup tonight s.nola.com/8IB1vaI

Jason Calmes

This is @GerrityJoe btw. I'll be on here throughout the evening for Thunder-Pelicans

Jason Calmes

What are you looking forward to seeing from the Pelicans in tonight's game? Southerland- Durant? Melvin Ely's glorious return?

Jason Calmes

Scratch that. Evans is in. He's warming up.

Jimmy Smith
