Notebook: Pelicans 100, Cavaliers 89


Brian Dulik, for NBA.com
Posted Tue Jan 28, 2014 11:14 PM - Updated Tue Jan 28, 2014 11:14 PM

THE FACT: The Pelicans equaled their longest winning streak of the season at three games by beating the Cavaliers in Cleveland.

THE LEAD: Power forward Anthony Davis collected a game-high 30 points, seven rebounds, and eight blocked shots as the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 100-89 on Tuesday at Quicken Loans Arena. Shooting guard Eric Gordon added 20 points, seven boards, and nine assists for the Pelicans (19-25), who also received nine points and a season-best 11 rebounds from center Greg Stiemsma. All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving paced the Cavaliers (16-29) with 23 points and five assists, while center Tyler Zeller had 13 points and 10 rebounds in his initial start of the season.

QUOTABLE: "The chemistry is there, it's been strong all along. But when we play good solid defense, and we run our plays without turning over the basketball like this, we can be a very good basketball team."
-- Pelicans shooting guard Eric Gordon

THE STAT: The Cavaliers completed their season-long, five-game homestand with one win -- and are 5-6 since acquiring small forward Luol Deng from the Bulls in exchange for center Andrew Bynum on Jan. 7. Cleveland has a 16-29 record under returning coach Mike Brown, making it 80-195 in four seasons under general manager Chris Grant. "I'm going to ride and die with Coach Brown," Irving said. "Whatever Coach Brown says, we're going to follow."

TURNING POINT: New Orleans held the Cavaliers scoreless for the final 5:24 of the first half, turning a 44-40 deficit into a 56-44 lead. Gordon had six points during the 16-0 run, while Davis and Stiemsma scored four apiece. The Pelicans maintained a double-digit advantage the rest of the way. "The end of the second quarter was what coaches dream about defensively," New Orleans coach Monty Williams said. "Our rim protection with Greg and Anthony was unreal."

QUOTABLE II: "This was just another game, but it's cool that people are talking [about making the NBA All-Star Game]. I'm just trying to get better every single day and make the right decisions when the pressure comes."
-- Pelicans power forward Anthony Davis

HOT: The Pelicans have won four of their last five games. Davis is averaging 23.3 points, 11.2 rebounds, and 4.67 blocked shots during the stretch. ... Gordon did not commit a turnover in 36 minutes. ... New Orleans point guard Brian Roberts had 12 points, marking his fifth consecutive double-digit scoring performance. ... Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters scored 21 points in 36 minutes off the bench.

NOT: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao (left knee hyperextension) missed his first game of the season, but is listed as day to day. The Brazilian was hurt Sunday when Suns power forward Markieff Morris rolled up on his lower leg. ... Cleveland small forward Alonzo Gee, who has made 18 starts, logged a "Did Not Play -- Coach's Decision." ... Pelicans center Alexis Ajinca played 17 scoreless minutes.

QUOTABLE III: "The biggest thing for us is we don't know what the problem is. There are times when we look good -- in games and in practice -- but we have to find a way to maintain them. We haven't been able to do that much."
-- Cavaliers center Tyler Zeller

GOOD MOVE: Cavaliers rookie power forward Anthony Bennett -- the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft -- was given 21 minutes in the largely meaningless second half by Brown. The UNLV product finished with a career-high 15 points on 5-for-10 shooting and eight rebounds. "We just have to focus on what's ahead of us as a team," said Bennett, whose field goal percentage rose to .279.

BAD MOVE: Davis dislocated his left index finger in the fourth quarter, but asked Pelicans trainer Jon Ishop to place it back in its socket, so he could remain on the court. The top overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft played the rest of the game with his first two fingers taped together. "I don't know if you dislocated your finger before, but that [expletive] hurts," Davis said. "But I wasn't coming out."

NOTABLE: Pelicans point guard Austin Rivers landed back-first on the knees of Cavaliers center Henry Sims in the fourth quarter, but said he was fine following the game. ... Inactive for the Pelicans were point guard Jrue Holiday (right tibia stress fracture), power forward Ryan Anderson (herniated neck disc), and center Jason Smith (right knee cartilage tear), while the Cavaliers did not dress Varejao and rookie shooting guard Carrick Felix (left patellar stress fracture).

UP NEXT: For the Pelicans, Wednesday @ Minnesota, Saturday vs. Chicago, Monday vs. San Antonio. For the Cavaliers, Thursday @ New York, Saturday @ Houston, Monday @ Dallas.
