Nice fourth-quarter surge by Pelicans. They trailed 89-78 at the end of three against Jazz.
Obviously, I'm not counting this as a win yet, but that 3 form Anderson helps!
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

Pelicans bench getting lot of playing time tonight. Dante Cunningham, Jeff Withey and Jimmer Fredette all approaching season-high minutes
Pelicans second unit is showing some life. But eventually the starters will have to finish this thing off.
Kanter just asked Withey how he felt about easy buckets. He regrets asking.
We've been waiting for the Pelicans to go on a run all night. Right now they are on a 7-0 run.

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

Pelicans shot 56.8 percent from the field in the first half.
Also, not saying they shouldn't disagree with his choices. Just saying there is probably a logic to his choices.
But I know a lot of people get salty about Monty's rotation and minute distribution regardless of opponent or context.
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
Dante Cunningham leads all Pelicans with 18 minutes in the first half. Expect to see a lot of our starters in the second half.
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

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