I have a lot of thoughts about this one and the Pelicans play recently, but I'm going to save that for later. Check out the BSS post game!

Pelicans are 13-12 and get a big division win. December is going much better than I could have hoped for so far.

Outstanding road win for #Pelicans in Houston. Outscored Rockets 34-22 in 4Q to prevail 99-90. One of two best road wins of '14-15 (Spurs)

Jenny Dial Creech

Pelicans 99, Rockets 90. Final

David Hardisty

FINAL: Pelicans 99, Rockets 90. Fatigued? Probably. Another cold shooting night but no late Harden takeover to bail them out.

Jinno Rufino

Beast watch 30/14 plus 5 blocks for @Anthony Davis vs @Dwight Howard as Pelicans on the way for a W. #TattooPHxNBA #HoopJunkies

Jason Calmes

Pelicans are up 99-90 with less than 30 seconds. Sure, Rockets were tired, but this W counts jus as much as any other.

Nakia Hogan

The more I watch Dante Cunningham the more I think he was exactly what the Pelicans needed, a gritty, tough player who can also shoot it.

Jrue Holiday has been a bit careless with the basketball. Pelicans have to make these possessions count with James Harden out of the game.

#Pelicans have to sag back, get feisty and help defensive rebound. Rockets had a sequence of a million offensive boards. NOLA still up 58-49
