That play had everything but the finish from Asik.

John Reid

Omer Asik fumbling too many passes in the post and unable to finish

Jimmy Smith

A reminder: read in-game updates from our trio of writers present at the game. Link: nola.com/pelicans/index…

John Reid

So far in first quarter, Pelicans giving up 50 percent shooting and they have to rebound better.

John Reid

Magic showing some fight, running their offense with little difficulty against Pelicans. N.O. trailing 15-14 with 5:24 in 1Q.

Jimmy Smith

Monty Williams doesn't like that #Pelicans are getting beat on the glass; timeout 5:24 1Q #Magic up 15-14; 9-6 REB edge.

John Reid

Eric Gordon makes nice 3-point shot to put Pelicans ahead 14-11.

Jim Eichenhofer

Pelicans already have 3 blocks in first 6 minutes. Most surprising: Jrue Holiday welcoming Elfrid Payton to NBA with swat of reverse layup

Jason Calmes

Asik isn't an offensive monster, but he is competent, which is something we haven't had from our second big these last few years.

Nakia Hogan

Tyreke Evans has assisted on 3 of the Pelicans' first 5 field goals.

Jason Calmes

Defense seems more active and aggressive tonight, which you can do when you have a guy like Asik anchoring things.

Jimmy Smith

First block of the year for @Anthony Davis. Expect many more to come.

Jimmy Smith

Nice pick-and-roll from Evans to Asik. Convinced Evans could be best PG on team. At SF tonight.

John Reid

Anthony Davis steal and uncontested dunk.

Jason Calmes

AD steals and goes coast to coast... This season is going to be fun.

Jimmy Smith

Omer Asik has spend a lot of time during camp working on FTs; misses first two of the season.

John Reid

Anthony Davis has missed his first two mid-range shots. Time to get inside.

John Reid

Nice block by Jrue Holiday on Elfrid Payton's layup attempt.

Nakia Hogan

Elfrid Payton's first career shot attempt was blocked by the Pelicans' Jrue Holiday.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans' Jrue Holiday rejects #Magic rookie Elfrid Payton leads to run-out try for Tyreke Evans.

Jason Calmes

AD starts off with two jumpers and two misses.

John Reid

Going have to get used to the red jerseys

John Reid

Don't look like the Pelicans are going to have a home opener sellout

John Reid

2014-15 season is about to get underway.

John Reid

Anthony Davis gets the microphone at midcourt and thanks the fans for their support

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans @Anthony Davis now thanking a very sparse crowd for coming to the season opener vs. #Magic. Maybe it's a late-arriving group.

John Reid

No surprise, Anthony Davis gets the loudest cheers during player introductions.

John Reid

Looking to see how center Omer Asik will emerge as a rim protector. He's going to get tested tonight.

Hugh Weber

Whoooo RT @DebPlacey: Jacob Josefson's SH goal stands. Major exhale.

John Reid

It's red-out for the home opener. Fans wearing red t-shirts. Pelicans wearing red uniforms.

Jimmy Smith

Wonderful, unadulterated National Anthem by quintet from Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. As it should be; no improv. #Pelicans-#Magic.

John Reid

Pels should be able to take control of game. A much bigger test is ahead with upcoming games against Mavs,Grizzlies, Hornets, Spurs, Cavs

Jason Calmes

Ahh League Pass music... How I've missed you.. We're close people.

Jimmy Smith

This is the first time since 2011-12 that #Pelicans have opened season with their projected starting lineup.

Jason Calmes

Our own @NOLAJake has all the info you need pregame. youtu.be/-ph2mMTHdYI

John Reid

Also interested in seeing how Coach Monty Williams uses his bench. How will he divide the minutes between Jimmer Fredette and Austin Rivers.

Hugh Weber

Alter your prediction up until end of 2nd #devspreztix @MSGNetworks win tix to @nhldevils vs #Jets Thursday #moredetailmorelikelytowin

John Reid

Looking to see if the Pelicans will come out tonight and control the pace and score quickly.

Monty Williams on entering opener against Magic with no major injuries. ''It does feel good have everybody ready to play.''

John Reid

The Pelicans have lost two of their last three opening games. They haven't won a home opener since beating Milwaukee in 2010.

John Reid

The Magic will be without F/C Channing Frye, who has a left MCL sprain.

Hugh Weber

Well, how's that for hello? 9 seconds. #devspreztix

Jason Calmes

Outside of rotation and lineup management, the big thing I'm looking for tonight is how Monty adjusts our defensive schemes with Asik.

Jason Calmes

Hey Pels fans, this is @nicklewellen. The NBA season starts tonight!! And I'll be here live tweeting the Pels home opener!

Hugh Weber

#devspreztix more accurate your guess, more likely to win @NHLDevils @NHLJets tix Who scores? OT? Shootout?

John Reid

Monty Williams:''Our guys are ready to go. They had a tough camp and some hard practices. They're ready to get out there and start playing''

Jim Eichenhofer

Rookies Russ Smith and Patric Young are the Pelicans' two inactives tonight vs. Magic.

John Reid

Hugh Weber

Sean Kelley

TD @Saints !!! Josh Hill catches wide open floater from Brees. 2 yard score makes it 37-16 Saints

Sean Kelley

Mark Ingram has a 7.5 average on his 128 yards rushing so far. A huge key is proving accurate. #GBvsNO

Sean Kelley

The @Saints have committed only 2 penalties, have 2 sacks, and 2 picks. Winning football.....so far. #GBvsNO

Sean Kelley

A TD on this upcoming drive could be a kill shot for a team that has talked FINISH all week. #WhoDat #GBvsNO

Rogers pass tipped and intercepted by White! @Saints ball at own 29!

Sean Kelley
