Your NBA leader in 3-point percentage is…Jonas Valanciunas? The Lithuanian big man made 5 3s in a win over the Clippers. He is on pace to shatter all of his marks. nola.com/sports/pelican…1:16 AM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
NEW ORLEANS — “We can say a lot of things. We could have done a lot of things tonight that would have been better for us, but we just was flat.” latimes.com/sports/clipper…1:03 AM
Dwain Price @DwainPrice
It’s a final: Suns 112, Mavs 104. KP had 23-12, Tim scored 18 pts, Jalen had 18 pts and 10 assists, Dorian scored 12 pts. Mavs are 9-6 and will play the Clippers in LA on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. CT. – 12:29 AM

Dallas is going to have a quick turnaround, too, before Sunday’s 12:30 pm start of a two-game series against the Clippers. Mavs are just finishing up what seems headed toward a loss in Phoenix. – 12:21 AM

Brandon Ingram on impact of Kira Lewis Jr. (16 pts, 4 reb, 4 ast in 23 mins vs. Clippers), who entered with three straight DNPs: “He stayed ready. He’s been working at the practice facility.

Jonas Valanciunas (26 pts, 13 reb, career-high five three-pointers in win vs. Clippers) on #Pelicans: “For us every win is a huge one. It’s been a struggle to start (the season). We’re going to try to play with high energy every game, and hopefully everything’s going to flip.” pic.twitter.com/NRHKKZmHpC11:36 PM

Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Asked about his career-most 5/9 three-point night on postgame w/@ESPNRadioNOLA, Jonas Valanciunas was surprised, responding, “I shot that many?” On frequency he said, “(LA was) playing deep coverage. We were trying to take advantage. I’m trying to adapt my game and be productive” – 11:20 PM

Ty Lue said that when the Clippers started 1-4, there were losses where he liked the way the ball was moving — they just weren’t making shots.
These last 3-4 games, he said, are different in that the ball is getting stagnant far too often, despite the players seeing film on it. – 10:21 PM

Clippers set the wrong kind of scoring record tonight in New Orleans, held to a franchise low 26 points.
New Orleans, entering tonight as the NBA’s worst defense and worst second half team, wins 94-81.
Clippers are 9-7 as they head home for the rest of the month. – 10:08 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Hands down the best defensive performance (and second half) of the season for #Pelicans yields quality win. Clippers only scored 81 points – 10:08 PM
Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
FINAL: Pelicans 94, Clippers 81.
New Orleans improves to 3-14, have won consecutive home games.
Pels strangled the Clippers offense in second half, erasing 20 point deficit and rolling to an easy win. – 10:07 PM

Final: Pels 94, Clippers 81
Valanciunas 26 pts & 13 rebs

Pels held the Clippers to 26 pts in the 2nd half and pick up a tough-nosed win despite missing Graham. Hart and Ingram’s aggression in the 2nd half made a huge difference. – 10:07 PM

They have missed EVERYTHING.
Pelicans up 92-81 and this one feels in the bag. – 10:04 PM

Clippers call timeout with 1:34 left.
New Orleans up 92-81.
That’ll be it for tonight, with Brandon Boston Jr. and Jay Scrubb checking in. – 10:03 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Ingram and Hart had a semi-passionate discussion about that last play, where Josh Hart ended up taking a tough fadeaway (which he airballed) instead of passing it to BI on the block as he posted up Batum. – 10:03 PM
Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
Without Devonte’ Graham and down 20, I definitely thought Pelicans were dead in the water tonight.
Credit them, because they squeezed Clippers defensively and never looked back.
Best night of a tough season for New Orleans. – 10:03 PM

Looked like Josh Hart got racked across the arm. No foul call. Hoop went down, but then he just glared at the referee for a long moment. Props to Scott Wall for not giving Hart a tech, and the Pels bench quickly pulling Josh to the bench.
Pels lead 77-74 w/ Ingram/George back in – 9:46 PM

Jonas Valanciunas has a double-double (19 points, 10 rebounds) and has put 4 3s in to lead the Pelicans, who lead 77-74 with 8:49 left to play.

Moments earlier, Kira Lewis hit his first three since November 3rd. Hope he continues to play aggressively. – 8:53 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Excellent minutes for Kira Lewis Jr. in 2Q, with 7 pts, 3 reb, 2 ast. Playing with a ton of pace and confidence – 8:53 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Under the radar aspect of this second quarter stint by LAC starters has been Ivica Zubac’s passing as the roll man. Last night Ty Lue was frustrated by the stagnant offense but tonight Zubac has been excellent finding open shooters and cutters. – 8:52 PM
Jake Madison @NOLAJake
There have been a surprising amount of airballs this half. And more of them have somehow come from the Clippers – 8:50 PM

New Orleans is leaving Luke Kennard open all night. He’s just there in the corner … all the time. – 8:50 PM

That Ty Lue timeout was in the queue as soon as Jackson let go of that no-pass possession long two. Clippers beating on New Orleans, but the starting guards have had some seriously suspect shot selection. – 8:45 PM

Paul George and Nicolas Batum are about to return to this game with the Clippers leading 38-22. Ty Lue wanting a strong finish to the first half to put away New Orleans. – 8:45 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Ty Lue didn’t think Terance Mann was quite himself last night. He begins second quarter with a strong take over Ingram, followed by a right corner 3, and Willie Green needs a timeout 45 seconds into the period.
Clippers up 34-16, with bench scoring 15 points. – 8:40 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Pelicans getting pressured no matter if it’s up in close or outside the three-point arc. The Clippers, on the other hand, are not getting the same treatment from the Pels. Case in point, Mann got to within 5 feet of the rim before someone picked him up. Then hit an open corner 3. – 8:39 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Ivica Zubac is back on the bench. No more gauze in his nostrils. – 8:39 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
#Pelicans shot 4/9 on 3s in 1Q, which was very needed, because they were 2/13 on 2s. New Orleans needs to cut the turnovers (6) as well, especially the ones that came from high-risk decisions – 8:37 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Pelicans started to throw a zone at Clippers, and Luke Kennard ended the first quarter with a zone busting wing 3.
Clippers up 29-16, their second-best first quarter of the season and fewest points allowed. – 8:37 PM

End of the 1st half: Clippers 29, Pelicans 16
Valanciunas 8 pts
NAW 6 pts
Pels shot 27.3 percent from the field, 2-13 on 2s (!!!). The guard play is lacking in a major way with Devonte’ Graham out. – 8:36 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
First quarter is over here in New Orleans:
Clippers 29, Pelicans 26
Zubac is in the locker room with both nostrils plugged; looked like team was having trouble stopping bleeding.
Pts in the paint: LAC 20, NOP 4
8 Clippers have scored. – 8:35 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
That Jaxson Hayes bucket with a minute left in the first quarter made him the third Pelican to score in the quarter.
Also, the Pelicans have 16 points in the first 11 minutes. – 8:33 PM

Ivica Zubac has left the bench and is going to the locker room. – 8:32 PM

Clippers center Ivica Zubac is being tended to on the bench, where he’s sitting with gauze up his nose. – 8:31 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Pelicans have as many turnovers as made field goals, trailing the Clippers 22-14 with 2:36 left in the first quarter.
Maybe it’s role reversal night and they’ll play better in 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarters? 🤞🏻 – 8:30 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Nola averages 15.6 turnovers per game — they’ve got five in the early going tonight (none of them leading directly to points, however).
And the Clippers are up 22-14, with 2:36 to play in the first. They have two turnovers so far. – 8:30 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Ty Lue on game 2 of a second night of a back-to-back, and he’s using his subs much more liberally than he did Sunday against the Bulls. Every starter has had a rest already, and Jackson is back in after a short rest.
Clippers up 22-14 with 2:36 left in first quarter – 8:29 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
One night after scoring 36 points in the paint in Memphis the Clippers have scored 18 … in the first 10 minutes. – 8:28 PM
Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
Not sure Pelicans fans have ever booed a guy every touch for simply being bad.
Usually it’s the way they left, or comments made, etc…
But they are just booing Eric Bledsoe because he sucked. – 8:27 PM

That was Jonas Valanciunas’ 18th made 3. He made 21 last season. This is game 17. – 8:26 PM

Kira Lewis Jr. seeing his first action since the loss to the Brooklyn Nets three games ago. – 8:23 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Another missed FT for Nico Batum… who is off to a rough start there this season. Now 5 of 10. – 8:22 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Clippers really got bailed out on the latest offensive possession, a mess of miscommunication. Bledsoe wasn’t on the correct side of the floor, and Paul George was down low when he was meant to start up high, per Ty Lue’s yelling. But Batum got fouled on a 3-pointer. – 8:22 PM
Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Not enough booing of Eric Bledsoe tonight – 8:19 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Not that it was a high bar to clear, but Eric Bledsoe has already surpassed last night’s scoring total in the first five minutes of tonight’s game.
Clippers up 15-6, with Paul George matching New Orleans’ point total with 6:54 left in first quarter – 8:19 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Strong start for the Clippers who’ve taken an 11-0 run to lead 15-6 early on. Eric Bledsoe is booed each time he touches the ball but has found Zubac for an assist and has 5 points. – 8:18 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Clippers on an 11-0 run now and lead 15-6. Nickeil’s two triples the only points for the Pelicans through the first five minutes. – 8:17 PM
