John Reid

It appears Eric Gordon suffered a separated shoulder, trying to get that confirmed.

Jason Calmes

In fact, 30 of the Pels' 57 points came from the paint in the first half. Utah had 14 points in the paint.

Sean Kelley

Pelicans guard @Eric Gordon has suffered a separated shoulder and will not return to the game. Let's hope it's mild. #Pelicans #NBA

Jason Calmes

I mean they are really leaving the paint open.

Jim Eichenhofer

After scoring a total of 4 points in NOLA's first 10 games this season, Jeff Withey had 9 at Denver and 6 in first half tonight (3-4 FGs)

Jason Calmes

Holiday and Evans both struggle with their shots. They're a combined 3-14. Normally, that's bad for Pels, but Jazz are struggling on D.

Jason Calmes

At halftime, Davis has 21 pts on 8-10, 6 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block. Also, he is 5-5 on free throws.

Jason Calmes

Pelicans really grow their lead in the 2nd, Pels are up 17 over the Jazz at 57-40.

Jim Eichenhofer

Maybe best quarter Pelicans played on road trip, outscoring Jazz 32-17 in 2nd. NOLA up 57-40 at halftime. Haven't won here since March '11

John Reid

Pelicans go into halftime leading Jazz, 57-40.

Jason Calmes

AD finally gets a block. What a bum.

John Reid

Pelicans have outscored Jazz, 31-15 in second quarter.

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis in midst of a huge 2nd quarter, scoring 14 of his 21 points. Scoring in a lot of ways. NOLA 56-38 at 1:00

Jason Calmes

AD has 19 points on 7-9 shooting. #efficiency

Jason Calmes

Davis has been really good at basketball this half. There is my #HotTake.

John Reid

Pelicans have controlled second quarter, leading 54-38.

Jason Calmes

Another and 1 for Davis, and Utah asks, "How do you stop that?" You don't... You don't.

Jason Calmes

The Jazz just give up baskets inside. I mean Withey had enough time to make that layup look pretty.

Jim Eichenhofer

Eric Gordon was defending Alec Burks and got his arms tangled up (foul on Burks). Gordon went to locker room holding his left shoulder

John Reid

Eric Gordon tried to cut off Trey Burke's drive on the perimeter and he got hooked under his left shoulder. No status update yet.

Jason Calmes

It was his shoulder not knee. Gordon heads to the locker room.

John Reid

Eric Gordon holding his left shoulder, could be serious. Heading to locker room.

Jason Calmes

Now, the Jazz announcers say he is looking at his right knee. I don't know anything besides we know nothing.

Jason Calmes

Gordon gets tangled up on a screen. Hard to see, but it looks like he is grabbing his left shoulder. Injury timeout.

John Reid

Pelicans backup center Jeff Withey playing well so far. He's made 2-of-3 shots, just got an open lane for a dunk.

Jason Calmes

WITHEY SLAM! Seriously, I forget that he can do that.

John Reid

Anthony Davis and Utah's Derrick Favors battling each other tonight. Good matchup.

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis (12 pts, 5-7 FGs) is getting good at that pull-up, mid-range jumper off one foot. A nice addition to his arsenal

Jason Calmes

Every announcer in the NBA has a quota on the number of times they must say that AD was a guard in high school. Jazz guys are close.

Jason Calmes

And he gets the and 1...

Jason Calmes

Davis played pretty much all of the first quarter. He earned a long rest. I figure he'll be back soon.

Jason Calmes

Russ Smith has played 4 minutes. 2 fouls.. No other stats.

Jason Calmes

Withey looks to block everything... Occasionally, that's a good thing. He has 2 blocks this half.

Jim Eichenhofer

Russ Smith was defending Dante Exum in a matchup of rookies, one with a thick NCAA resume, the other a bit of mystery from Australia

Jason Calmes

Honestly, the Jazz are really helping with some of these turnovers.

Jason Calmes

Pelicans are on a 9-0 run to bring their lead to 7.

John Reid

Crowd at EnergySolutions Arena chanted briefly, ''We want Jimmer.''

John Reid

Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday are a combined 2-of-8 from the field. Not good.

Jason Calmes

Russ Smith is getting some action tonight. #LeaguePass

John Reid

Russ Smith is in the game.

Jason Calmes

Forgive the typo. Quiet.

Jason Calmes

Another Pelicans turnover, wakes up the Utah crowd. I was just thinking how dead quite it seemed there.

Jim Eichenhofer

Pelicans rookie PG Russ Smith makes a very-early entry tonight, a minute into 2nd quarter. This is only his 2nd regular season appearance

John Reid

Tightly played first quarter - Pelicans leading 25-23. But Jazz scored 12 points from 3-pointers.

Jason Calmes

For those of you that couldn't find the game on TV, the Pelicans are up 25-23 at the end of the first quarter.

John Reid

Anthony Davis' jump shot blocked by Rudy Gobert.

Jason Calmes

AD gets his shot block by Gobert. Doesn't happen often.

Jason Calmes

Gordon started the night hot, but it looks like he is trying to force himself to the rim.

John Reid

Alexis Ajinca a scoring threat so far - he has made his first three shots.

John Reid

Eric Gordon doing a good job so far attacking the rim. He's made his first three shots.

Jim Eichenhofer

Pelicans doing nice job getting to the basket early, lead Jazz 12-2 in points in the paint. NOLA 19-15 at 4:24 of 1st qtr

Jason Calmes

Pelicans running a version of their "BIG" lineup. No Asik but they have an Ajinca. Utah plays a slow pace. Let's see what happens.

Jason Calmes

I can hear Davis screaming on my TV. Good to hear that kind of communication on defense.

Jason Calmes

9 of Utah's 12 points have come from beyond the arch... Defending the 3 point line will need to be a priority.

John Reid

Pelicans already having problems with their perimeter defense. Utah has made 3-of-4 3-pointers. Jazz leading 12-10.

Jason Calmes

Pelicans take a timeout after a Hayward 3 from the corner.

Hugh Weber

Jason Calmes

I misread an email... The open thread is now up at BSS... I'm so sorry.

John Reid

Jrue Holiday is going have to defend Trey Burke tougher on the perimeter. He's made two straight 3-pointers.

Jason Calmes

Utah wins the tip and here we go!

John Reid

Jimmer Fredette said he purchased about 18 tickets for his return game back to Utah, where he was a college star at BYU.

John Reid

Pelicans center Omer Asik will miss Saturday's game vs. Jazz after re-injuring his back during warmups against Nuggets Friday night.

John Reid

Tried to get interview with Omer Asik before Saturday's game, he politely declined. Asik said with a smile, ''I do not want to talk.''

Jason Calmes

After the Pelicans last disappointing loss, what are all of ya'll hoping to see change to tonight?

John Reid

Jimmer Fredette waiting patiently for a chance to provide help off the bench s.nola.com/KX30rmH via @nolanews

John Reid

Pelicans still trying to play with more consistency, especially on the road s.nola.com/waTVIbJ via @nolanews

Jason Calmes

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis on what Nuggets did to win: "They were scoring in transition, hitting 3s, offensive rebounding, getting 50-50 balls."

Jim Eichenhofer

Monty on Nuggets' edge in securing loose balls: "I thought they got almost every ball. They were just quicker tonight."

Jim Eichenhofer

Monty on Omer Asik (lower back) being a late drop from lineup: "I did not think he'd be a scratch, but he was. We had to regroup quickly."

John Reid

Pelicans struggled with their execution tonight in 117-97 loss to Denver. It was their sixth consecutive loss at the Pepsi Center.

Jim Eichenhofer

Nuggets shoot lights-out for much of Friday's game en route to 117-97 win over Pelicans. More: on.nba.com/1v5JlLU http://t.co/2f7vJMCQiN

Jason Calmes

#Nuggets top #Pelicans 117-97. These nights happen to every team. Expect NOLA to bounce back in a big way in Utah tomorrow.

Jim Eichenhofer

Small consolation but one bright spot: Jeff Withey has season-best 9 points. He was 2-for-3 with 4 total points this season entering tonight

Jim Eichenhofer

Nuggets have shot very well tonight. And their mascot, Rocky, just made a halfcourt shot with his back to the basket. #buckets Den 114-91

Jason Calmes

There must be a reason for having the starters still playing down by 24 w/ 4 minutes left when the Pels have a game tomorrow night, right?

Jim Eichenhofer

Pelicans have been in pretty much every game, losing by 5, 7, 9 and 12 points, but Nuggets are blowing this open. Den 109-86 at 5:25

Jason Calmes

With this being the 2nd back-to-back of the #Pelicans' road trip, they may just shut this one down & make damn sure they beat Utah tomorrow.

John Reid

Pelicans trailing 86-73 at the end of three quarters. Pelicans made only 5-of-16 shots in third quarter.

Jason Calmes

We've played 3 quarters in Denver, and the #Nuggets lead the #Pelicans 86-73. Everyone is hitting for the home team.

Jim Eichenhofer

Nuggets shooting 52% from field, 44% on treys (7-for-16). Pelicans need to bring those way down in 4th qtr to come back. Den 86-73 end 3rd Q

John Reid

Tough night for Ryan Anderson - bad matchup trying to defend Kenneth Faried. Got beat for a rebound after falling to the floor.
