Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans had their way in the first half. Holiday made four of his first five shots.

John Reid

Pelicans in control - leading 64-45 at halftime against Thunder.

Tyreke Evans' two-handed dunk after baseline drive. The guy is playing like he hadn't miss any time.

Nakia Hogan

In 10 minutes so far, Tyrele Evans has 8 points and 3 assists.

Nakia Hogan

The Pelicans are a much more explosive team with Tyreke Evans on the floor,

Jim Eichenhofer

Pelicans doing many more quick-hitting plays adn pushing ball in transition. NOLA 22nd in pace last yr. 29th or 30th from '10-11 thru '12-13

I think Anthony Davis is ready for regular season. He's scored 35 points in the last 4 quarters he's played, with 4 minutes left in this one

John Reid

Jimmer Fredette enters for the first time with 4:05 left in 1Q.

John Reid

Austin Rivers has to finish around the rim better, especially when he beats the defender. Had that problem last season.

Jimmy Smith

Monty Williams being smart about @Tyreke Evans' minutes; sits him with 5:27 to go 1Q. No need to rush him back. Seems ready to go.

John Reid

Austin Rivers just made nice drive to the basket, but missed layup. But A.Davis got the tip-in.

John Reid

Pelicans' Austin Rivers first guard off bench. He's paired in the backcourt with Jrue Holiday.

Not a bad 6:33 stint in his preseason debut for Tyreke Evans (6 points, 3 assists, 1 block). NOLA leads 24-8

This isn't close to being the real OKC team the Pelicans are playing.

Hard to get excited about whatever happens tonight #Pelicans-#Thunder. OKC really playing with D-League lineup due to injuries.

Jim Eichenhofer

Early highlights: Anthony Davis with block of a 3-pointer (Perry Jones), a rarity in NBA except for by him. Tyreke 3-point play, looks quick

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans making it look very easy early on against the overmatched and short-handed Thunder. Pels lead 16-6 with 7:10 to play in 1Q.

John Reid

Nice spin around move by Tyreke Evans for shot in the lane. He's attacking just like he did during the final stretch of last season.

John Reid

Omer Asik definitely showing he's an enforcer in the paint. Making it difficult for Thunder shooters.

John Reid

Pelicans having no problems running their offense tonight so far. They are out to 11-4 lead. Everything clicking.

John Reid

Definitely not the Thunder starting lineup tonight we'll be seeing in the regular season.

Opening possession of game, Jrue Holiday gets steal in backcourt.

John Reid

Former Pelicans forward Lance Thomas starting tonight for Thunder.

John Reid

Thunder coach Scott Brooks said former Pelicans guard Anthony Morrow has been everything they expected.
