Notebook: Pelicans 101, Thunder 89


Bradley Handwerger, for NBA.com
Posted Mon Apr 14, 2014 11:59 PM - Updated Mon Apr 14, 2014 11:59 PM

THE FACT: New Orleans broke a 10-game losing streak to Oklahoma City, winning for the first time since Jan. 24, 2011.

THE LEAD: Tyreke Evans almost didn't play in New Orleans' second-to-last game thanks to a right knee bone bruise.

Less than 90 minutes beforehand, in fact, his coach didn't even expect him to play.

But he not only started, he set a career-high with 41 points, had nine rebounds and put up eight assists in leading the Pelicans to a 101-89 win over the Thunder.

And New Orleans (33-48) needed everything he could give them. The Pelicans already were down to 10 players, including two who have spent less than five days with the team. Then early in the second quarter, Austin Rivers was ejected from the game for fighting with the Thunder's Nick Collison, who also was tossed.

Without Anthony Davis, New Orleans was outrebounded by the Thunder by four and scored just four second-chance points. But Oklahoma City was unable to take advantage of hitting nine 3-pointers, allowing New Orleans to sink nine, too.

It didn't help that Oklahoma City was playing without guard Russell Westbrook, who was resting after playing 33 minutes a night earlier. Reggie Jackson, starting in his place, scored only four points and had just three assists.

Serge Ibaka finished with 22 points and 16 rebounds while Kevin Durant added 25 points, seven rebounds and six assists for Oklahoma City.

Even with the loss, however, the Thunder can still control their own destiny for the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference. Win against Detroit on Wednesday and the second-seed is theirs.

New Orleans, meanwhile, is out of the playoff picture, only playing spoiler in the final week of the season.

And Evans was the main spoiler against the Thunder, constantly driving to the basket for layups and getting to the free-throw line, where he was 12-for-16.

He wasn't alone in having an above-average night, though. Luke Babbitt scored 12 points off the bench, hitting three 3-pointers. Darius Miller added 10 points and five assists.

QUOTABLE: "I knew I had to take over with Austin out. The ball was in my hands a lot. Coach (Monty Williams) did a good job running pick-and-rolls and I just made the right reads."
-- Tyreke Evans on his career performance

THE STAT: 18-10 -- The Pelicans earned eight extra possessions against the Thunder by forcing 18 turnovers while only turning the ball over 10 times. Six of the turnovers came in the fourth quarter, which Oklahoma City entered down just one point. New Orleans scored 19 points off the takeaways.

TURNING POINT: When Rivers was ejected from the game with 7:56 to go in the second quarter, it forced New Orleans to reconfigure its game plan. With Rivers out, Williams said Evans was his only choice to handle the ball and he responded, scoring 37 of his 41 points after that moment.

QUOTABLE II: "I'm not making any excuses, they just beat us. They got whatever they wanted on the offensive end and it felt like we were just out of it. We missed shots. We kept fighting, but they kept pushing and we just couldn't catch up."
-- Kevin Durant

HOT: Oklahoma City forward Caron Butler helped ease the pain of not having Westbrook, who was given a night off by the coaches. He went 6-for-8 from the floor and 4-for-4 from the free-throw line against New Orleans, scoring 19 points off the bench. Butler is now 12-for-18 the past two Thunder games.

NOTABLE: New Orleans snapped an eight-game losing streak with the win. ... Oklahoma City fell to 8-7 on the second night of back-to-backs. ... Pelicans rookie Jeff Withey finished with four blocked shots. ... The Thunder are now 43-8 when outrebounding an opponent.

UP NEXT: For the Pelicans, Wednesday vs. Houston. For the Thunder, Wednesday vs. Detroit.
