Big Second Half Leads Pelicans Past Nuggets

07 December 2017

They also recorded a season-high 37 assists, and their starting five combined for 101 points.

Jamal Murray scored 31 points, and backcourt mate Gary Harris made 9 of 11 from the field, including 4 of 6 from 3-point range, on his way to 22 points.

NOTES: New Orleans F Anthony Davis' left adductor strain has improved, but he missed his third consecutive game. Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry does not want to rush Davis back until the big man is completely healthy. "He did something and shot around a little bit today and moved around a little bit. Hopefully [his return] is sooner more so than later, but we're still not going to take any chances". Pelicans PG Rajon Rondo is averaging at least 11 points, 10 assists and six rebounds in December. He is listed as day-to-day for Wednesday, but he said Monday he was still experiencing sharp pain in his left groin area when making lateral cuts.

Following the Nuggets' 123-114 loss to the Anthony Davis-less New Orleans Pelicans, Malone had some rather harsh words about the team's performance.

In fact, this is the best start for the team in quite awhile. Replays did not show obvious contact, and officials chose to uphold their original call that Plumlee committed a foul. Mudiay finished the game with 17 points and two turnovers.

"Just the antics. It's silly man, like, just let me live", Cousins said. He said after practice Tuesday that he would make a better effort at remaining calm when teams try to goad him into doing something stupid. "Tonight was my night", Cousins said. Trading him could prove wildly unpopular with the fan base and may plunge the team into the aforementioned cellar of the league, but it may be what is needed so that the franchise can start building a more solid foundation around a different player. But they felt like we both were in the wrong.

The Nuggets made 16 3-pointers in the game, but just six in the second half, after nailing 10 in the first half.

At this point, the Pelicans find themselves just good enough to not be in the NBA's proverbial cellar, but not good enough to be considered as any kind of serious title contender.

In that first half, Denver scored 24 fast break points and their ability to get out in transition was a major reason why the Nuggets trailed by just one point after two quarters.
