Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday both sit for Pelicans against Hawks
Nov 14, 2015, 09:24
Need to know: The 1-7 Pelicans are decimated with injuries although there is a chance all-star big man Anthony Davis could return from a hip bruise.
Justin Anderson scored a career-high 11 points tonight. "And, going forward, I hope we can chip away at the exhibition season and get rid of a few of those". New Orleans is giving up an average of 111.2 points per 100 possessions with Asik off the court and 101.4 when he's on.
Still, it was a gutty effort by the Pelicans, who were also missing guard Jrue Holiday. Davis did not do much in the game as he only played 19 minutes which is a good sign for their matchup against Atlanta.
With Davis out of the game the Pelicans worked hard as a team to maintain their lead against Dallas with five players besides the injured Davis putting up double digit points.
While the team as a whole continues to struggle, it appears as if Anthony Davis is hitting his stride.
The Cavaliers trailed by as many as nine in the fourth, but James stole a pass and dribbled the length of the floor for an impressive three-point play to pull the Cavs within 95-94.
There is plenty to get upset about in this game but one positive was the stellar play of the offense. Jeff Teague led the way with 24 points on 10-of-17 shooting which was an improvement from the past two games.
"We're finally containing the dribble a little bit more", guard Eric Gordon said.
Defensively, the Pelicans finished with 9 steals, 5 blocks and 18 points off turnovers, all while holding Dallas to 44.3% shooting. He sat out the second half and wasn't cleared to face the Hawks.
There are a couple of "here we go again" thoughts to this.
Even with Davis sidelined, the Pelicans outscored Dallas 36-35 in the third quarter to enter the final period with a 94-75 lead.
Despite starting the season on a six-game losing streak, New Orleans' players are not anxious about the slow start to the season.
