Thank God for another day!
Great questions. Gotta do that again soon... Nap time in 3.. 2.. 1..
Quick Q & A... Go!
Taking your Pelicans Twitter mailbag questions: What has been most frustrating about this team? Blown leads, injuries,Monty Williams,etc.
FYI Thunder lost 130-91 to Spurs. OKC (41-31) entered today 3.5 games ahead of NOLA (37-34) and maintains that same edge
Anthony Davis hadn't missed more than 2 free throws in any game since Dec. 9 vs. NYK (6 of 9). His previous high misses was 7 vs. OKC Dec. 2
Ant. Davis on his postgame shooting: "I missed 8 free throws. I don’t feel comfortable missing 8 free throws, especially when we lost by 2"
Anthony Davis: "I had no doubt in my mind that I was going to get back in the game" after he hurt right shoulder in 4Q.
Anthony Davis is back on the court postgame shooting free throws. He had rough night there, at 6 of 14
Rare time we see that implemented in the NBA .Foul. EG with 2 shots. 1.7 seconds. -CR
Guessing Q-Pon and EG get the first looks. Not mad if Davis decides what could be the season too. -CR
So you're saying there is a chance. -CR
for that very reason
Foul to give, so two fouls needed, tough spot with 7.8 secs left.
Please let's have some MKE magic of our own tonight.
Huge bucket by Asik. Five point game. 1:08 left. Need a stop and bucket here. (Or some Khris Middleton magic.) -CR
Josh Smith shooting just 32% on treys this season but swishes a big one from corner. Rockets 94-85 at 3:11. Davis 23-12-3-3
Got to give Davis the ball. Just for the adrenaline, he scores, roof pops off. -CR
Anthony Davis has returned to game.
Apparently Davs was prepared to check in. -CR
Whew big sigh of relief (and bigger cheer) as Anthony Davis re-enters at 4:41 of 4Q. Rockets up 8
Anthony Davis has left the game heading to the locker room with 6:26 remaining in the game.
Docs checking AD's right shoulder. slowly sitting up.
Anthony Davis appeared to have injured his right shoulder.
Anthony Davis hit his right shoulder into Corey Brewer after intercepting a long Rockets pass. Same shoulder he hurt in February twice
Cole has to play with Lebron/Wade rules when on a fastbreak with Davis, give the ball up to him before they take the foul. -CR
Donatas Motiejunas (19 pts) putting on a low-post clinic that should make post-up guru Kevin McHale proud. Hou 83-76 at 9:25 of 4Q
AD on his way to a 46 minute game?
Anthony Davis 19 pts, 11 reb, 2 stl, 3 blk through 3Q, but a rare poor shooting night (7-15 FGs, 5-10 FTs). Hou 78-70
Rockets leading Pelicans 78-70 at end of third quarter.
Pelicans' interior defense non-existent over the last two quarters.
In maybe the first cut of the second half, DC gets the ball and draws the foul. 2 fts. -CR
Pelicans cannot avoid having lulls where nothing seems to go right, especially offensively. With 2:43 remaining, Pels have 11 points in 3Q
Maybe if that was a 3 from DC it goes in-overshot by a bit. Need someone who can make that shot for when teams flood the strong side. -CR
Rockets seem to be getting every long rebound. Hou has 35-18 edge in total rebounds, a big key to comeback. Hou 70-63 late 3Q
Dante Cunningham just shot a jumper that sailed over the rim.
Trevor Ariza has 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting vs. Pelicans.
Bad off-the-ball def by Evans there. No mans land. Not doubling Harden, but away from his one who was one pass away. 3 for Ariza. -CR
Rockets have 46-28 edge vs. Pelicans on points scored in the paint.
Rockets score opening five points in third to regain lead 54-52 against Pelicans.
Tyreke Evans missed his first shot of the game at the start of the third quarter after making his first seven attempts.
