Notebook: Pelicans 98, Clippers 96


Bradley Handwerger, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Mar 27, 2014 12:43 AM - Updated Thu Mar 27, 2014 12:43 AM

THE FACT: The Pelicans snapped a six-game losing streak to the Clippers.

THE LEAD: With only nine players available and one of the NBA's hottest teams coming into the Smoothie King Center, Wednesday night could have been bleak for the Pelicans.

Instead, Anthony Morrow scored 27 points, Anthony Davis had 16 points, 13 rebounds and six blocked shots, and New Orleans held off the Clippers 98-96 for its fourth straight win.

New Orleans (31-40) was without Eric Gordon, Brian Roberts and Austin Rivers, the first two missing with injuries, latter out with a respiratory infection. They were out in addition to Ryan Anderson, Jrue Holiday and Jason Smith, who are all out for the season.

The Pelicans simply relied on others to step up, including second-year player Darius Miller, who tied a career-high with 16 points off the bench.

Los Angeles (50-22), which had won 14 of the past 15 games prior to Wednesday, tried to keep the tempo high with its superior depth. And the Clippers did take a lead early in the fourth quarter on a Jamal Crawford 3-pointer.

But New Orleans went inside, where it doubled Los Angeles by the end of the game in the paint, finishing with 56 points there. Reserve center Alexis Ajinca had 14 points and 11 rebounds, helping to hold Clippers center DeAndre Jordan to just eight points and 16 rebounds.

By virtue of the thin roster, New Orleans coach Monty Williams was forced to use Miller on All-Star point guard Chris Paul. The result was a two-point, two-turnover night for Paul, who did finish with 12 assists.

Los Angeles' Crawford led all scorers with 31 points and Blake Griffin added 21 points for the Clippers.

New Orleans now has won eight of its past 11 games.

QUOTABLE: "Not only did we beat a good team, we beat a team that's got a chance to win a title."
-- New Orleans' Monty Williams

THE STAT: 53-40 -- New Orleans might have had fewer players to choose from, but those who did play helped the Pelicans outrebound the Clippers by 13 boards. That included 17 offensive rebounds that led to 19 second-chance points.

TURNING POINT: It appeared the Pelicans were finally going to give into the deeper Clippers early in the third quarter when Los Angeles reeled off an 11-0 run that gave the visitors a 63-57 lead. But New Orleans' Davis hit a seven-foot jumper to break the dry spell and Los Angeles never led by more than four points, keeping the Pelicans close enough to eventually strike back.

QUOTABLE II: "I just thought overall our execution was bad. I just thought they played harder. They really deserved to win."
-- Los Angeles coach Doc Rivers

HOT: New Orleans needed help playing with only four players in reserve and Miller, the second-year forward, delivered. He went 7-for-9 from the floor for a career-high tying 16 points.

NOT: Los Angeles' Paul spent many nights at the former New Orleans Arena scoring in buckets. But Wednesday night, he couldn't connect, finishing the game 0-for-12. His two points were the fewest this season for him.

GOOD MOVE: Los Angeles' Rivers forced the shorthanded Pelicans into a fast-paced game early, trying to wear down a team with only nine players available to play. The other part of the plan helped, too. The Clippers went full-court press against whichever New Orleans player brought the ball up the floor.

NOTABLE: New Orleans' Davis set a franchise record for blocks in a quarter with six in the third. ... Los Angeles' Crawford hit seven 3-pointers, tied for the most given up by a single player this season for New Orleans. ... Los Angeles' Darren Collison, who was drafted by New Orleans, finished with 11 points and seven assists. ... Actors Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart attended Wednesday's game.

UP NEXT: For the Pelicans, Friday vs. Utah, Saturday @ San Antonio, Monday vs. Sacramento. For the Clippers, Thursday @ Dallas, Saturday @ Houston, Monday @ Minnesota.
