Hearing that actors Will Farrell and Mark Wahlberg will be attending tonight's Pelicans-Lakers game at the Smoothie King Center.

Pelicans have upgraded Anthony Davis (toe) to probable. Jrue Holiday (ankle) remain questionable.
Monty: "I thought we had a tough 1st quarter. That dug us a hole and we had to battle back the rest of the game." Pels scored 16 pts
Pelicans have reached the point where some tough and honest conversations are necessary from the top on down. No one should be off limits.
This road trip was abysmal for the Pelicans, a 2-3 record (losses to Celtics, 76ers, Knicks) and injuries to Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis.
Don't you all see? The Pelicans were trying to win you money! You knew this was going to happen!
Pelicans suffer yet another dismal loss - 99-92 to the woeful Knicks, who ended a franchise record 16-game losing streak.
Knicks fans stand in anticipation of ending losing skid but Melo goes 1 of 2 from foul line. NY 97-92 with 19 ticks left
I stand corrected that was Jose Calderon who made that 3-pointer.
Pelicans let the Knicks run off far more time than needed before fouling.
Pablo Prigioni left wide open on 3-pointer that put Knicks ahead 96-92.
Defensive breakdown from the Pelicans. Covered Melo but allowed a wide open Calderon from 3.
Correction: They call no free throws for Amundson. Instead, Jose Calderon drills corner 3 for huge basket. NY 96-92 at 0:32
Officials ruled Omer Asik indeed fouled Lou Admundson before clock expired.
Replay review will conclude Asik fouled Amundson before shot clock expire. Amundson 2 free throws coming but he's very poor there
Officials reviewing if Omer Asik fouled Lou Amundson before the shot clock expired.
Another driving layup by Evans help Pelicans cut lead to 93-92.
It appears my feed of the game is a little behind.
Pelicans will not let Melo beat them. Rest of the team needs to be aware of Galloway at all times.
Pelicans on 25-15 fourth quarter run to cut the deficit to 93-90 with 2;10 remaining in fourth quarter.
Ajinca is 2 of 5 from the stripe. Could be important as this game winds down. He'll need to sink his free throws.
Pels within 3. Melo misses a jumper but follows it up for the put back.
Anderson has a catch and shoot three rim out. Almost dropped.
Pelicans have outscored the Knicks 20-13 in the 4th thus far. 4:37 remaining.
Pelicans double Anthony and force a tough two. He misses. Free throws for Ajinca on the other end. 91-85 Knicks.
Pondexter answer right back with a 3 of his own. Lead six now.
Galloway with a big three for the Knicks. Lead back up to 9.
Alexis Ajinca followed up two big games with a scoreless 1st half tonight, but starting to get going now. Has 7 pts in 2nd half. NY 86-80
This quarter Anderson looks like he has some more confidence. Could have been the reasons for all the earlier misses.
Pelicans down 6. Anderson has 8 in the 4th thus far.
Anderson is in a flow now and hits another 3.
Pelicans trailing 84-78 to Knicks with 7:57 remaining.
Ajinca with a nice one dribble score as the roll man. Makes it, gets the foul, goes And One.
Anderson coming out of the break with energy. Makes a three then bulls his way inside for a short fade away.
Anderson starts the 4th quarter well with a made three. Let's see if he keeps that going.
Pelicans trailing 78-65 at the end of three quarters.Do they have a fourth-quarter push like Sunday. So far, they haven't shown much
End of the 3rd, and avert your eyes, Pelicans down 78 to 65 against the 5 win Knicks.
Jason Smith hits another easy mid range jumper. Just like he did for the Hornets/Pelicans for a few seasons.
Withey just did a swan dance or something on the court. Maybe auditioning for the New York Ballet? Gets bailed out with a foul call.
Minutes distribution tonight has been very strange. Looks like Monty is just trying to see if anything works.
Nate Wolters and Jeff Withey haven't been in the game today til now, entering late 3Q. NY 72-62 at 1:56
Knicks still getting any shot they want and they extend lead to 72-62
Ajinca unable to shoot over Amar'e. Airballs another Pelicans' shot.
Luke Babbitt making semi-rare appearance. Lack of mins means he doesn't qualify for 3-pt% lead now. Otherwise he's 2nd (49.3%) behind Korver
Little shocked at the lack of Pondexter thus far, expected to see him more. Monty must prefer Cunningham on Melo instead.
Babbitt into the game for the Pelicans.
Anderson's stat line: 3 points, 1 block, 1 turnover. That's it.
Court spacing is important, but if Anderson is going to be 1 for 8 from deep he needs to try and score other ways.
Pelicans still trying to double Melo, Anderson took away Smith from mid range. Decent defensive possession thus far.
Pelicans playing a little better after halftime, outscoring Knicks 14-6 to cut the deficit to 61-55.
Good play by the Pelicans brings the divide down to 6. Knicks, after some confusion, take a timeout.
Silver linings is that Gordon looks excellent. Must have been because he came to our watch party.
Other thing on Ryno's shooting: Some have been long, others short. He could be over thinking/over compensating things.
Would this settle down some of the screams: There probably isnt one coach/player/ops side that isn't without blame on this team. Discuss.
On Anderson, earlier in the year when he wasnt shooting well he tried to score other ways. Only 2 shots inside the three point line tonight.
Not sure how well you can see it but Knicks had "New Orleans-style" halftime show with their dance team etc.: http://t.co/6On8QIxxHu
Halftime in NYC. Pelicans down 53 to 41.
Tyreke Evans with the head/ball fake on Calderon before he hits the 3.
Pelicans actually look worse defensively than they did Friday in loss to 76ers.
Eric Gordon has made 5 of 9 shots. Rest of team has made 7-of-26 shots. Not good.
Amundson should never have made that. Did he even look when he shot it?
Cunningham with solid 1 on 1 D on Melo. Asik with the rebound off the miss.
Jason Smith was on this team. How they leave him open from a spot he likes is shocking.
Knicks leading Pelicans 40-29. Pelicans heading for disaster. Knicks have lost 16 straight but are outplaying the Pelicans in every phase
If this keeps up Monty shouldn't let the Pelicans shower with hot water, or something like that.
Pelicans up to 35.7% from the field. It's sad to say they've raised it to that.
Evans with the nice poke away on defense leading to a layup. Pelicans needed that.
Asik was frozen by the dribble, let a Knick just run right past him for an easy lay in.
Omer Asik just hasn't played well
7 unanswered by the Knicks. Lead up to 10.
Knicks now leading by 10 against Pelicans
Ajinca unable to get inside on Jason Smith. Misses a midrange hook shot.
Pelicans just called for second shot clock violation of the game - unbelieveable
Stepback Tyreke three-point attempt. Airball.
Now, I don't know if Ajinca would have been any better had Evans passed though. His coordination while moving worries me.
Ajinca sets a pretty good screen for Evans, had space on the roll to get the ball. Evans forces a shot instead.
Jimmer Fredette has scored four points after opening four minutes of second quarter.
Tyreke Evans had no driving lane and forced it.
Pelicans slowly increase their FG%. Thanks in part to Jimmer.
Amar'e gets inside for an easy dunk. Pelicans wisely didnt try to foul him, but should have made it tougher to score.
Jimmer forces a jumper and gets the nice roll to score. Follows it up next possession with a very short floater.
