New Orleans Pelicans Fact of the Day for April 15 (4/15/14)

With six of the Pelicans other top seven scorers sidelined, Tyreke Evans put the Pelicans on his back en route to victory vs. Oklahoma City on Monday with a historic performance. He recorded a career-high 41 points on 14 of 26 shooting (12 of 16 free throws). This was the highest scoring performance by a New Orleans player since David West’s 44 points at Houston Dec. 29, 2009. It was his second 30+ point performance of the season. Most impressively, Evans' 32 second half points are a franchise record for points in a half (previous: 30 West second half against the Rockets on Dec. 29, 2009).
