Catch by Graham for 7 but not enough. Morstead will punt for first time in forever.
Saints take first timeout facing 2 and 11 at own 16.
Brees gets sacked in a mass protect formation. Loss of 6.
Panthers fail to score points off Saints turnover again. Huge break. Still scoreless with 2:36 left in 1st
Newton has been given a huge pocket to throw from and he continues to miss badly on throws. CAR punt
Keenan just blew up Cotchery to force incompletion. Big time play
Saints D can get off quickly. 3rd and 9 for CAR
DE Kony Ealy hurt on that last run by Ingram. Another 1st down on 5 yd rush and 5 yd CAR penalty
And just like Panthers drive stalls at NO39. Punt.
3 plays. 3 str 1st downs as CAR reaches NO 40
CAR went for homerun ball on 1st play. Incomplete to Benjiman
That pass must have been a missile at Stills. It caremed a long way.
3rd and 6. Graham and Stills back in
Saints reach red zone on an 18 yard catch by @thejimmygraham.
Two of the guys who carried a large load Sunday, are factoring early. Ingram and now Cooks
Saints will start at their own 20.
Giants win again!!!!!
U got this Bumgarner!!!!!
Omer Asik trying his luck in Call of Duty video game.He missed a few targets, though. http://t.co/iFJikg0TE4
Pelicans PG Jrue Holiday said he required 5 stitches for cut over right eye. Only protection he'll wear Saturday vs. Mavericks is a Band-Aid
Orlando missed 52 shots (32/84 from field), but about one-third of those misses were blocked. Pelicans' 17 swats was 1 shy of team record
Speedy recovery for Julius randle!! Hang in there bro.
I don't know Julius randle personally....but I hope he has a speedy recovery! Stay strong bro.
Hahaha Kobe just told Dwight "try me" lol said "your soft try me" haha OG Kobe
Monty Williams on Ryan Anderson's 22 points in 1st regular season game since January: "It was almost like a statement... that he was back."
Jrue Holiday on Anthony Davis' 26-17-9 in a win on Opening Night: "“That’s AD. He gets better and better.”
Pelicans beat Orlando Magic 101-84, behind Anthony Davis' 26 points.
Couldn't have asked for a better debut of the Anthony Davis/Omer Asik interior pairing. Combined for 40 points, 34 rebounds, 14 blocks
OK here's the correct fact on Anthony Davis' stat line: He's first NBA player since Dwight Howard in 2008 to generate 26-17-9 in any game
Welp, I'm signing off and going back to my boring personal account where I can be much weirder and stay off topic. Thanks guys.
Monty still has plenty of time to make adjustments as he sees fit. I wouldn't be surprised if Ajinca works his way into a few mins/gm soon.
The rotations will get talked about a lot after this game. I imagine Babbit over Salmons will be a thing. Its just one game.
Anthony Davis was so absurd tonight it might make you overlook that Omer Asik had 14 points, 17 rebounds and tied career high with 5 blocks
Pelicans win 111-84. Wasn't a perfect game, but so much to be excited about.
Pelicans beat Magic 101-84 behind a dominating performance from Anthony Davis: 26 points, 17reb., 9 blocks.
Here comes the bench. No triple double for Davis, but there are 81 more games for him to get one. Amazing opening night for AD.
Oh well, no triple-double for A.D. Monty Williams brings in subs. Still Davis finishes with 26 points, 17 reb., 9 blocks. No bad.
Anthony Davis done for the night with 26 points, 17 rebounds, 9 blocks. Pelicans up 21 with 2:00 left
Monty Williams brings in his backups with the Pelicans leading 97-74.
Up 21 with 3 minutes left. Expect the bench to be cleared soon.
Anthony Davis is not an alien... pretty sure... Either way he has to make a cameo in the next Men in Black movie.
One clarification: Anthony Davis is 1st player to have 24-16-9 in any team's SEASON OPENER. Although it may cover all games since '85-86
Davis is a block away from a triple double.
Anthony Davis just tied his franchise record with nine blocks. He needs one more for the triple-double.
Tyreke is also closing in on a double double with 10 points and 9 boards.
Jrue Holiday returns to the game with a bandage over his right eye with 6:23 to play.
Anthony Davis drains 1 free throw to give Pelicans 87-72 lead with 6:39 left. Davis now has 23 points, 15 rebounds, 8 blocks. Ridiculous
And they force a turnover. AD with the steal. I don't think zone defense confuses good veteran teams, but teams like Orlando can struggle.
Looks like they are going with a 2-3 zone.
Now, all 3 big are in for Pelicans. It'll be interesting to see how this works on offense. Will they let Ryno man up or run a zone.
Monty Williams is going with his big front court of Asik, Davis and Anderson, with Anderson at SF.
It'll be interesting to see how Monty closes this game out with his rotations.
After watching those outtakes, Monty HAS to host Saturday Night Live.
Anthony Davis is now within one block of tying his own franchise record, which is 9 blocks in a game. He has 8 with 10:28 left in 4th qtr
Anthony Davis, who already has 22 points and 15 rebounds, needs two blocks for a triple double.
