Anthony Davis scores 31 points and the Pelicans come from behind in the fourth to beat the Jazz 119-111.

Jason Calmes

Your final score is 119-111. @SchwanBSS will have your recap. It wasn't pretty but it was a W! Talk to you guys later, @nicklewellen.

John Reid

Pelicans emerge with fourth-quarter rally to beat Jazz, 119-111.

Jason Calmes

AD nails the layup and gets the and one!

Jason Calmes

2 point game with 90 seconds. Pels have the lead.

John Reid

Nice fourth-quarter surge by Pelicans. They trailed 89-78 at the end of three against Jazz.

Jason Calmes

Obviously, I'm not counting this as a win yet, but that 3 form Anderson helps!

Jason Calmes

Young tms drop games they should win. We've seen that with the Pels. Hopefully, this comeback is a sign of maturity rather than luck

John Reid

Tyreke Evans makes layups on two consecutive possessions that helped Pelicans regain lead 105-104 with 3:17 remaining in game.

Jason Calmes

Layup from Evans give Pelicans the lead! 105-104 with 3:18 to go.

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans with a parade of layups, including one play where he outraced three Jazz defenders. Evans 7 layups in 2nd half. NOLA 105-104

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans have come storming back, lead Jazz 105-104 with 3:17 left.

Jimmy Smith

Time out 3:17 4Q, #Pelicans take lead, 105-104 over Utah thanks to back-to-back driving layups from @Tyreke Evans

Jason Calmes

Jazz lead is down to 1 after two FTs from AD.

Jimmy Smith

One-PT game after two AD FTs.

Jason Calmes

Pels down 99-102, but they look more alive right now than they have the entire game.

John Reid

Monty Williams surprised by Kings' decision to fire Mike Malone as coach s.nola.com/oeHMQvV via @nolanews

Jimmy Smith

Time out 5:47 4Q, Utah 102, #Pelicans 99; @Anthony Davis with two FTs when play resumes.

Jason Calmes

Pels down just 3 with 6. Crowd gets a defense chant going.

Jason Calmes

Tyreke gets a 3 point opportunity on a coast to coast drive. Nice stuff.

John Reid

Big 3-pointer by Austin Rivers cut the Jazz's lead to three. But Utah answers with Alec Burks' 3-pointer.

Jimmy Smith

Back to a 3-PT game, 102-99 Utah over #Pelicans.

Jimmy Smith

Assertive coast-to-coast drive for @Tyreke Evans with a foul shot coming.

Jason Calmes

Pelicans are down 7 with just over 8 to play.

Jim Eichenhofer

Pelicans bench getting lot of playing time tonight. Dante Cunningham, Jeff Withey and Jimmer Fredette all approaching season-high minutes

Jimmy Smith

Time out 8:13 4Q, Utah 96, #Pelicans 89. @Austin Rivers with 3-PT play opportunity out of the break.

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans second unit is showing some life. But eventually the starters will have to finish this thing off.

Jason Calmes

Kanter just asked Withey how he felt about easy buckets. He regrets asking.

Jason Calmes

We've been waiting for the Pelicans to go on a run all night. Right now they are on a 7-0 run.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans shooting 58 percent from field and trail 92-85

John Reid

Pelicans getting outplayed by Jazz. Trailing 89-78 at end of third quarter. Jazz scored 33 points in 3Q.

Jimmy Smith

They're reviewing that Dante Exum buzzer-beater. But it's good.

Nakia Hogan

At the end of the 3Q: Jazz 89, Pelicans 78. FYI: The Pelicans are 0-8 this season when trailing at the end of the third.

Jason Calmes

The Pelicans end the 3rd quarter down 11. 89-78.

Nakia Hogan

I keep waiting for the Pelicans to turn it on, and it just is not happening.

Jason Calmes

BTW, Pels are down 74-80 with 2:20 to go in the 3rd.

Nakia Hogan

With 2:20 left in 3Q, Jazz leading Pelicans 80-74. Something is clearly missing tonight from the Pelicans.

Jason Calmes

I have really loved Dante Cunningham, but he is struggling with Hayward. He just let him go that time. Might have been expecting help.

Jimmy Smith

Time out 2:20 3Q, Utah 80, #Pelicans 74.

John Reid

Pelicans continue to struggle defensively against Jazz. Trailing 80-74 with 2:20 remaining in 3Q

Jimmy Smith

Another blow-by into the lane, this from Gordon Hayward. Utah has 54 paint-points vs. #Pelicans. Can anyone make a stop?

Jimmy Smith

Utah in FT bonus final 4:24 3Q, leading #Pelicans 74-70. Utah with 1 team foul at this point.

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis (18 pts, 7-10 FGs) has made 23 of his 33 shots vs. Utah this season. He had career-high 43 pts at Utah on 11/22

Jason Calmes

Asik is actually having a pretty effective night on offense. 10 points on 4 FGA.

Jimmy Smith

Another finish for @Omer Asik and he gets a 3-PT play opportunity.

John Reid

Pelicans have been outscored 11-4 by the Jazz at the start of third quarter.

Jason Calmes

Pelicans have clearly been trying to integrate more ball movement into the offense. Results have been mixed. Tonight is more bad than good.

Jason Calmes

Pelicans are still having trouble defending the paint and protecting the rim even with Asik and Davis on the floor.

Jimmy Smith

Utah on a run, time out #Pelicans trailing 67-57 8:26 3Q.

Jason Calmes

The Babbit-Hayward matchup is really more about the hair difference than basketball #HotTake

John Reid

Pelicans shot 56.8 percent from the field in the first half.

Jason Calmes

Also, not saying they shouldn't disagree with his choices. Just saying there is probably a logic to his choices.

Jason Calmes

But I know a lot of people get salty about Monty's rotation and minute distribution regardless of opponent or context.

Jason Calmes

One thing re: Monty. When we play an inferior team, he tries to rest the starters and get more from bench. IMO it is a solid long term strat

Jason Calmes

Dante Cunningham leads all Pelicans with 18 minutes in the first half. Expect to see a lot of our starters in the second half.

Jim Eichenhofer

Ryan Anderson (15 pts) and Anthony Davis (14 pts) almost on pace at halftime to make it four games in a row with two NOLA 30-point scorers

John Reid

Pelicans trailing 56-53 at halftime to the Jazz.

Jason Calmes

Frankly, the Pels should be happy to be down only 3. 56-53 at the half.

Nakia Hogan

Halftime: Jazz 56, Pelicans 53

Jason Calmes

Gordon "Hair" Hayward fouls AD on the jump shot.

Jim Eichenhofer

Utah shooting 61% from field. Pelicans are shooting 55% but have committed 10 turnovers. NOLA is 2nd-best in NBA in turnovers (11.2/game)

Jason Calmes

The last time we played the Jazz I didn't really enjoy the game. It just felt sloppy. Tonight is not different.

Jimmy Smith

Time out 2:10 2Q, Utah 51, #Pelicans 44.

Jimmy Smith

Gordon Hayward converts a 1-on-3 fast break; Utah up 49-42.

John Reid

Pelicans Ryan Anderson has his shooting rhythm tonight. He's made six of his first seven shots, nearly all beyond 20 feet: 15 points.

Jason Calmes

At this point, let's just end the quarter with a one on one between Anderson and Trey Burke.

Jim Eichenhofer

Ryan Anderson (15 pts, 3/4 treys) has made 13 of his last 26 three-pointers. He was 4 of 23 on threes in the previous four games

Jason Calmes

Another Anderson 3 and another timeout. Pelicans are down 3 with 4:47 to go.

Nakia Hogan

Jazz leading Pelicans 43-40 with 4:47 left in 2Q.

Jimmy Smith

Time out 4:47 2Q, Utah 43, #Pelicans 40.

Jason Calmes

WELP Anderson is 5/5 from the field. Pels are down 37-39 midway through the second.

Jimmy Smith

Make that 5/5 for @Ryan Anderson; time out Utah ahead 39-37 over #Pelicans.

Jimmy Smith

That's an 8-0 run for Utah, back up 37-30 over #Pelicans.

Jason Calmes

I assume that was a good pass from Jimmer to Anderson. Not sure though. This motel internet isn't great.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans cannot defend the paint tonight; Utah has 24 inside.

Jason Calmes

Jimmer is 1-11 from 3 this year.

Jim Eichenhofer

Jeff Withey played total of 29 minutes on weekend vs. Cavs/Warriors. Most he's played in a 2-game span this season. Averaged 6.0 pts/4.0 reb

Jason Calmes

Less than 2 minutes in to the second quarter and the Pelicans are only down 2.

Jason Calmes

That drive from Anderson... Be still my beating heart...

Jimmy Smith

Time out Utah 10:12 2Q, #Pelicans on 6-2 run, trail 28-26.

Jason Calmes

Nice two man game from Anderson and Withey.

John Reid

Pelicans made seven shots in the first quarter and committed nine turnovers.

Jason Calmes

After a 9 turnover quarter, the Pelicans are only down 6. 26-20 at the end of the first.

John Reid

Pelicans trailing 26-20 at end of first quarter. Jazz shot 61 percent from the field.

Jason Calmes

I thought Cunningham would play Hayward a bit tougher than he has. Now, we just need to bring help over.

John Reid

Jimmer Fredette screamed at himself for missing jumper at end of first quarter.

Nakia Hogan

At end of 1Q: Jazz 26, Pelicans 20. Pelicans turned the ball over nine times in the 1Q.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans with 9 turnovers in 1Q, only 6 Utah PTS, though.
