Oooooh rivers and one off the glass. Very nice!
Slow start for Tyreke Evans but his layups started to fall late in the quarter. He's 4-for-10 after playing all 12 minutes so far
This game is uglier than a Barbra Streisand-Neil Diamond duet.
Austin Rivers SPLASHES the three.. And a foul! Oh but he bricks the FT.
Darius Miller checks in. Al Farouq Aminu yet to be seen.
Pelicans 10 fouls in 9+ minutes. Anthony Davis has to sit with 2, then Jeff Withey has to sit with 3. Not fouling the right Clippers either
Will the Pelicans score double digits this quarter? Scientists say... probably not.
With Witheys 3rd foul we get to see Greg Stiemsma. YAY!
This is getting ugly fast. Clippers pick and roll defense is sensational. Pelicans just have no idea how to counter. 17-6 LAC.
Pelicans fouling like they usually do. Clips in the bonus w/ 7 minutes left. Just young and inexperienced.
Jeff Withey rejected by Jordan. Blocks Blake Griffin on the other end.
Monty said in pregame that Jeff Withey will get more chances to play. Due to Anthony Davis' 2 quick fouls, Withey in very early 8:53 1st Q
Tyreke Evans had 14 in his first ever Pelicans start last night. He's starting again along with Gordon, Roberts, Davis, and Ajinca.
Raining in LA
Tyreke Evans on what he learned from being stuck for 30 minutes in hotel elevator: "The next time I come to Phoenix, I'm taking the stairs."
Listenin to this Oxymoron on the way to LA
Pelicans lose 116-104 to Suns. NOLA shot 53.8 percent from field, but Phoenix was even better at 54.1. Made 11 more free throws
Suns fans chanting "MVP!" for Goran Dragic as he scores 40th point of the game. Very Steve Nash-like game shooting and keeping dribble alive
This Phoenix team is really solid. There's no shame in losing to them.
A very entertaining night. Loss in the column, but there are some good takeaways. Will put them in the recap.
Impressed by Phoenix crowd tonight. One of loudest road arenas Pelicans have played in over last few weeks at least
That Ish Smith shot over Davis really hurt.
What a shot by Ish Smith. Didn't think he'd even try to shoot over Anthony Davis but scraped ceiling with a shot for 108-100 lead at 1:11
Suns in the bonus
Pelicans chipping away after Suns appeared to be in control. Phoenix lead down to 105-98 at 2:42
Gordon gets switched onto Dragic, goes under the screen, pays for it.
Goran Dragic having the kind of night where it's no surprise he banked in a 28-footer. He's got 34 points as Suns lead 103-92 at 5:18
Getting ugly really quickly.
New gameplan: attack whomever Morris is defending.
Perfect timing. Rivers in for Roberts.
Brian Roberts is a great story.. but it's one whose final chapter should've been written long ago.
Dragic is getting it going now.
Anthony Davis is going to be so good, it's scary.
Roberts back in, but Rivers stays in.. presumably to guard Dragic.
One of the best shooting games Pelicans have had all season. Shooting 56.1 percent from field and 5-for-8 on treys (62.5 percent)
When was the last time AD touched the ball?
That was a terrible possession w/ Rivers dribbling the full 24. Terrible.
Tyreke Evans has been off to the races often tonight, scoring 5 layups among his 13 points, in his first start as a Pelican
Shame that they just fouled Plumlee. Beautiful sequence. 2 Reke layups, Rivers shadowing Dragic, Davis block on Morris.
Jeff Withey made 2 straight nice plays on sequence, using quick hands to knock ball away from Suns, then hits tough in-between J on baseline
Withey's been throwing his hands around trying to get deflections. Just got one there, open J on other end.
Pelicans bigs are taking a beating on some of these drives to the hoop by Goran Dragic. Dragic got away with kick to Anthony Davis' waist
Gordon's had his deep shot going all game. Drills an open 3.
Davis goes limbs akimbo on a weird shot, Monty walks out of his way to pick him up.
Some good intensity out there right now. Getting physical and a little chippy between the teams. Old school
Roberts just picked up his 4th foul.
Anthony Davis' array of jump shots has been impressive tonight. He's 9-for-12 overall from the field for team-best 18 points
PJ Tucker is getting some run in the post against Tyreke. Just delivered pass to Plumlee.. who promptly dropped it.
Something got Brian Roberts fired up in tangle with Goran Dragic. Double-technical. I believe that's 1st T of Roberts' NBA career
A very entertaining first half. 56-54 Suns.
Call stands. Eric Gordon's layup was too late to count. Suns take 56-54 lead into halftime
Gordon didn't get it off in time, but that was a beautiful play call to end the half.
Those are the kind of plays where you wonder how good Gordon could be if he could consistently dribble.
Stiemsma has yet to see the floor tonight. Withey in at 1:13.
part of that is also the big men, who are delaying Dragic long enough for Rivers to recover. So kudos to both.
So tough to stay w/ guys like Dragic, who are fast, crafty, and have teammates setting screens for them. Rivers is fighting over, recovering
