Monty: "We need to prove we can bounce back from a big win. We've got a few hours to enjoy this, but have to move on to (facing) Brooklyn."

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans was ill today but played through it. Monty: "I thought that gave us the biggest boost, when guys saw him come back in the game"

Jim Eichenhofer

Monty on NOLA's new contributor: "The energy Norris (Cole) has given us at both ends of the floor complements our system so well."

Jim Eichenhofer

Luke Babbitt on Norris Cole: "He's been huge. He's bringing the energy, moving the ball, hitting shots. Second game, that's impressive."

Jim Eichenhofer

Luke Babbitt on Jimmer Fredette sinking two vital free throws after sitting first 47:54 of game: "That's so underrated. That's hard to do."

#Pelicans pulled back within 2 games of eighth-place OKC (31-25). Thunder host Pacers tomorrow. NOLA hosts Nets on Wednesday

Jim Eichenhofer

Quincy Pondexter on one big factor in #Pelicans win: "The bench played amazing tonight... It was a gutsy team win."

Jim Eichenhofer

More good news for #Pelicans. Suns just lost to Celtics, meaning New Orleans (29-27) moves ahead of Phoenix (29-28) for ninth in West

Quincy Pondexter

Amazing comeback win @New Orleans Pelicans!!! Big Lex, Cole World, and Luuuuuke were ballin!!! #TakeFlight

#TakeFlight Question of the Night: What was your favorite aspect(s) of the #Pelicans comeback win over Raptors tonight?

Anthony Davis

What a game! Proud of this team and the way they fought! #TakeFlight

Eric Gordon

Gutsy comeback win vs @Toronto Raptors! Proud of the way @pg30_Cole @Alexis Ajinca & #LukeBabbitt stepped up. #TakeFlight http://t.co/YwM2Xn2fUn

Despite being extremely short-handed, #Pelicans rally from 18 points to beat Raptors, 100-97: on.nba.com/1Bi0g2F http://t.co/3wL5g4lt77

Jason Calmes

#PELICANS WIN! No Davis? No Jrue? No Anderson? NO PROBLEM! 100-97 over the #Raptors.

John Reid

Pelicans beat Raptors 100-97 coming back from 18-point deficit.

Jim Eichenhofer

What a win. One of the best of the season. No AD, no Ryan, no Jrue. Down by as many as 18 points, #Pelicans beat Raptors 100-97

John Reid

Jimmer Fredette makes both free throws

John Reid

Jimmer Fredette at free throw line with 4.7 seconds remaining, makes first one.

Jason Calmes

#Pelicans lead the #Raptors 98-97 with 4.7 seconds to go. Jimmer to the line for 2.

Jim Eichenhofer

Toronto has no timeout left as Jimmer goes to line

Jason Calmes

While I despise the Tyreke iso call, that's also the call that won the #Pelicans the game in Toronto. Doesn't make it right, though.

John Reid

Pelicans holding 98-97 lead with 16.3 seconds after Tyreke Evans' missed jumper. Raptors ball.

Jim Eichenhofer

Very tough loose-ball foul called on Alexis Ajinca, made worse by fact that NOLA is over the foul limit. Lowry sinks 2 FTs. Raps up 97-96

John Reid

Pelicans have outscored the Raptors 29-19 in fourth quarter to take 96-93 lead.

John Reid

That was back-to-back 3-pointers by Luke Babbitt.

Jim Eichenhofer

Wow what a surge by #Pelicans with the game on the line. Luke Babbitt on fire and Tyreke Evans drives past Raps again for huge layup

John Reid

Luke Babbitt's 3-pointer just gave the Pelicans a 94-93 lead.

Jason Calmes

BOTTOM LUKE BABBIT YESSIR

John Reid

Norris Cole showing ability tonight.

Jim Eichenhofer

Norris Cole was excellent in his #Pelicans debut at Miami, but started slow tonight. Now he's got 13 pts in 4Q and 15 in game. Tor 91-88

Jason Calmes

I don't like the Norris Cole I'm seeing right now, but for now it's working. No LeBron to yell at him here in NOLA.

Jason Calmes

So dumb. Babbitt was wide open. But we'll take it.

Jason Calmes

I knew that shot was falling. Brutal.

Jason Calmes

Celtics just crushing the Suns tonight. Up 67-50 at halftime.

Jim Eichenhofer

Bench has kept #Pelicans in this. Ajinca 14 pts, Cole 11 pts, Babbitt 10 pts. Combined the reserves are 18-for-28 from field

Jim Eichenhofer

Norris Cole erupting on offense in 4Q, with 9 of NOLA's 12 pts. Has two jumpers and two layups. Tor 86-79 at 6:41

John Reid

Backup point guard Norris Cole has scored seven of the Pelicans' last 10 points. Pelicans down by 79-77 with 9:16 remaining in 4Q

Jason Calmes

What a great feed from Tyreke. #Pelicans down just 2, 79-77 to the #Raptors with 9:16 to go.

Jimmy Smith

Time out 9:16 4Q, #Raptors 79, #Pelicans 77; once 18-PT TOR lead down to 2.

Jason Calmes

Yeah okay Reke you do you kid!

Jim Eichenhofer

#Pelicans came back from a 12-point deficit in 4th qtr to win at Toronto last month. Were down 10 at start of 4th tonight. Tor 79-75 at 9:40

John Reid

Pelicans showing much more fight in second half than they did during the opening two quarters.

John Reid

Pelicans trailing 74-67 at the end of three, but they held the Raptors to 18 points in third quarter.

Jason Calmes

Norris Cole gambles on a steal, loses, Terrence Ross hits wide open 3. :/

Jason Calmes

#Pelicans trail #Raptors 74-67 after 3 quarters. Within striking distance. Related: Pels trailed 71-64 after 3 quarters in Toronto. Won by 2

Jason Calmes

Pretty, pretty inside out play from the #Pelicans there. Don't look now, but the Pels are down just 4.

John Reid

Pelicans have outscored Raptors, 20-14, so far in third quarter.

Jim Eichenhofer

Norris Cole (3 assists) doing nice job in 3Q setting up bigs for easy baskets. Cole spent much of his time in Miami off the ball spotting up

John Reid

Alexis Ajinca has 14 points on 7-of-11 shooting.

Jimmy Smith

Time out 2:40 3Q, #Raptors 70, #Pelicans 64; @Omer Asik just picked up PF4.

Jim Eichenhofer

Raptors were keeping #Pelicans at arm's length nearly all game but NOLA seems to be making some inroads. Tor 68-62 at 3:38 of 3Q

John Reid

Omer Asik's dunk cut Raptors' lead to 68-62.

Jim Eichenhofer

Monty said pregame that #Pelicans may start Alexis Ajinca at PF in some games, depending on matchups. Ajinca 12 pts/6 reb in 13 minutes

Jason Calmes

4-point play. Just how the #Pelicans drew it up. NOLA down just 7.

John Reid

Pelicans making a push in third quarter, cut Raptors' lead to 65-58.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans, who shot 4 FTs first half are in FT bonus final 6:02 3Q.

Jason Calmes

Are we almost to Josh Smith levels w/ Tyreke whenever he looks like he's going to shoot a 3? "NOOOOOOOO!"

John Reid

Pelicans trailing Raptors at halftime 56-44. Pels outscored 14-7 on second-chance points and 9-2 on fast break points.

Jason Calmes

Big problem for the #Pelicans thus far has been limiting second chances. #Raptors w/ an offensive reb rate of ~45%, & getting to line a ton.

Jason Calmes

Luke Babbitt filling the Ryan Anderson role nicely tonight. 8 points on just 3 shots along with 3 rebounds (& 2 assists?!) in 11 minutes.

Jason Calmes

#Pelicans players not named Omer Asik have as many free throw attempts as I do tonight.

Jason Calmes

#Pelicans head to the locker room down 56-44 to the #Raptors. All things considered, not as bad as it could have been. Not out of it yet.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans bench outscoring starters in the first half 24-20.

Jason Calmes

It's almost humorous that the #Pelicans appear to suddenly have some sort of added emphasis on the corner 3 now that everyone is hurt.

John Reid

Luke Babbitt drills 3-pointer and a fan seated near the scorers table screams finally the Pelicans can make a shot.

Jimmy Smith

#Raptors' Kyle Lowry just banged his head on a camera lens, but he's up now. Time out 59.1, TOR up 53-39 over #Peilcans.

Jason Calmes

Valanciunas is just toying with the #Pelicans on the glass. Even Asik.

John Reid

Pelicans trailing Raptors 53-36 with 1:37 remaining before halftime.

Jason Calmes

#Pelicans proved in Toronto that they can close the gap late if the deficit is reasonable. If it hangs around 20, that's not reasonable.

John Reid

Raptors making it look like a layup drill.

Jim Eichenhofer

There's no defense for some of the shots DeMar DeRozan (turnaround stepbacks) and Kyle Lowry (deep 3s) are making. Tor 51-33 late 2Q

John Reid

Another late-clock possession and another missed shot by the Pelicans.

John Reid

Pelicans center Omer Asik struggling tonight.Don't see enough fight or effort.

Jimmy Smith

Timeout 4:02 2Q, #Raptors now up 45-31 over #Pelicans following 7-0 run.

John Reid

Eric Gordon and Tyreke Evans are a combined 3-of-14 from the field.

Jason Calmes

Ajinca hook cuts the #Raptors lead to 7. #Pelicans trail 38-31 halfway through Q2. Ajinca is the game's first player to hit doube figures.

John Reid

Alexis Ajinca has made 5-of-9 shots for 10 points.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans' @Alexis Ajinca, who had 22 in earlier win over #Raptors, has 10 with 5:55 to go 2Q.

John Reid

Pelicans cut Raptors' lead to 38-31. Alexis Ajinca needs the ball in his hands more.

John Reid

Pelicans finally making a push in second quarter.

John Reid

Pelicans backup center Jeff Withey has scored on consecutive possessions
