Since Jan. 14, when Anthony Davis plays 20+ minutes (AKA when he doesn't sustain an early first-half injury), #Pelicans are 7-3

Jim Eichenhofer

As has been well documented, #Pelicans have won last 4 without Anthony Davis. But they're also 8-4 in the last 12 games Davis has played

So happy to see my friend @Joffrey Lauvergne in the NBA keep up the good work brother I will see you this summer #NationalTeam #DefendOurTitle #Gold

Jim Eichenhofer

Headed to Dallas. #TakeFlight Question of the Night: Who's been the #Pelicans best in-season roster addition and why?

Jim Eichenhofer

D.Cunningham on 5 wins without key guys: "It kind of takes the pressure off them. It allows them to heal completely + not have to rush back"

Jim Eichenhofer

Eric Gordon on 5-game win streak: "Everybody's contributing on offense. In the 4th quarters, our defense is what's really helping us."

#Pelicans Reke doing a good job of pushing the tempo as the de facto PG. But off. sets have to get in the paint even if not a post up. -CR

Jim Eichenhofer

Nuggets have their hands full trying to stop Alexis Ajinca in low post. Has five inches on defender J.J. Hickson. Ajinca 8 pts in 4Q

John Reid

Pelicans outscored 14-6 on second-chance points.

#Pelicans susceptible to press effecting their sets with Reke as PG. Set was 30 ft away from the basket with 11 secs left on the Shot Clock

Jim Eichenhofer

Under the circumstances, you may have to do something you're not used to. Dante Cunningham has played all but 58 seconds tonight. NOLA 43-41

Jason Calmes

#Pelicans first 16 points were in the paint. Have to go back to attacking in order to win the game and exploit their defense. -CR

If the @New Orleans Pelicans win tonight at Denver, they would stand 6-5 in games without @Anthony Davis

Sean Kelley

The @New Orleans Pelicans need to get back to attacking rim. 1-11 from 3pt in first half. Winning paint 24-18. Tied at 37 with DEN at half
