Notebook: Suns 116, Pelicans 104


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Mar 01, 2014 2:14 AM - Updated Sat Mar 01, 2014 2:14 AM

THE FACT: Anthony Davis, New Orleans Pelicans' All-Star big man, was averaging 20.2 points, 10.2 rebounds and 3.0 blocks entering Friday's game. No NBA player has averaged 20-10-3 since Shaquille O'Neal in the 1999-00 season.

THE LEAD: Eric Bledsoe's long-awaited return to the Phoenix Suns could come within days. Until it happens, the Suns are trying frantically to remain over .500 without him. They did so Friday night by wearing down the visiting Pelicans and pulling away late for a 116-104 win.

With the win, the Suns moved to 34-24 overall -- and 18-16 without Bledsoe. They avoided a season-worst four-game losing streak. The Pelicans (23-35) lost their sixth straight.

Goran Dragic, drawing cheers of "MVP!", scored a career-high 40 points. His availability was in question until shortly before the game because of an ankle injury that caused him to miss the Suns' previous game Wednesday night. Dragic shot 14-for-21.

The Morris twins added 33 points, with Markieff scoring 18 and Marcus 15.

For the Pelicans, Davis had a great game with 32 points, nine rebounds, three steals and a block. His availability also had been in question because of a sore shoulder.

Dragic scored 15 points in the first quarter as the Suns led, 30-28 entering the second quarter. They led 56-54 at halftime.

QUOTABLE: "It was great. I never imagined that cheer for me. I was here when they cheered Steve (Nash for MVP). It's something I'll probably remember all my life."
-- Goran Dragic

THE STAT: With 40 points, Dragic recorded his career scoring high for the third time this month. He poured in 34 vs. Golden State on Feb. 8, then went for 35 on Feb. 23 vs. Houston.

TURNING POINT: The Suns took off on a 17-1 run midway through the final quarter. Trailing 91-88, Dragic scored on a drive, then Markieff Morris hit a short banker and a layup to get things going. Dragic capped the run with a 25-footer from up top that accidentally banked in and, moments later, a 17-footer. The Suns suddenly had a 105-92 lead and the game.

QUOTABLE II: "He came up before the game and said, 'I can go, coach.'"
-- Suns coach Jeff Hornacek on deciding whether to play Dragic. He also turned to trainer Aaron Nelson, the Suns' trainer and Hornacek's brother-in-law, who told him, "'I can tell when he's fibbing,'" but judged Dragic was good to go.

QUOTABLE III: "We knew he was a great player. But the way he's able to get around things...When they double him, he still gets around it, reverses his dribble. I think he's at the point in his career where he's seen every possible defense. When they do something, he adjusts."
-- Jeff Hornacek on Dragic

HOT: The Suns, a mediocre free-throw shooting team, hit 23-for-26 from the line, including 9-for-11 by Dragic.

NOT: The Pelicans' Austin Rivers shot 1-for-7.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Over the past four games, the Suns' Channing Frye has shot 9-for-30, including 5-for-19 on 3-pointers, while averaging just for 6.3 points and 3.8 rebounds.

NOTABLE: The Pelicans' Tyreke Evans got stuck in an elevator before the game, coach Monty Williams revealed. Evans made it to the game and started. He played well, shooting 6-for-13 for 14 points plus five boards and four assists...He hit three driving layups in a 1:34 span in the third quarter to spark a 13-0 Pelicans' run to give them a 75-66 lead...Markieff Morris has scored in double figures off the bench in 20 of the Suns' 21 last games...The Suns are 21-8 playing on one day of rest.

UP NEXT: For the Pelicans, Saturday @ L.A. Clippers, Monday @ Sacramento and Tuesday @ L.A. Lakers. For the Suns, Sunday vs. Atlanta, Tuesday vs. L.A. Clippers and Thursday vs. Oklahoma City.
