Cheick Diallo 19 Points Full Highlights (4/11/2017)

Discount Diallo Cheick! The Malian Mauler! The innumerable question marks that so adorned my perception of his last 19-point performance have been reduced to only a few: ???? ?? ? Unlike last time, all the way back in December, this one we could have seen coming at least a little bit. This is April NBA….

Alexis Ajinca 17 Points Full Highlights (4/8/2017)

Outside of his own parents and maybe himself, I might be the biggest Alexis Ajinca backer in the entire universe. Every time I see him play he’s dominating other teams with his combination of size, shooting touch, flabbiness, and looking like a drunk fifty-year-old. But that’s because I only see him play when I’m making…

Jordan Crawford 21 Points Full Highlights (4/8/2017)

Looking at Jordan “Instant Grits” Crawford’s game logs this year is a real trip: this dude just came in with his bucket of buckets and started spraying them everywhere the Pelicans went. From D-League to NBA without breaking a sweat, shooting the same shots and causing the same disbelieving groans from opposing fans. He’d better…

Quinn Cook 22 Points Full Highlights (4/8/2017)

This is the same thing that happened last year with the Pelicans: random players picked up from random places going off for 20-point nights. Last year, it was James Ennis and Jordan Hamilton (RIP in peace). This year, it’s Jordan Crawford and Quinn Cook. Hopefully the trend doesn’t continue past this year, or there are…

Jordan Crawford 20 Points Full Highlights (4/7/2017)

Now THIS is the kind of one-dimensional iso chucking that I expect from Jordan Crawford. 10 of 16 on mostly midrange jumpers where he dribbled around for a bunch, only one free-throw drawn (and missed), and a couple assists that didn’t even come close to making up for his tunnel vision. This is the kind…

Donatas Motiejunas 13 Points Full Highlights (3/26/2017)

OFFICIAL THINGS THAT DESTROYED DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS’ CAREER POWER RANKINGS: 1. Contract impasse with Rockets that resulted in D-Mo becoming a free agent after turning down a $30 million offer 2. Pistons fabricating a failed physical because they got cold feet when they traded for D-Mo 3. Pelicans trading for DeMarcus Cousins 4. Too many donuts…

Jordan Crawford 22 Points Full Highlights (3/19/2017)

First off, whose idea was it to put Pelicans owner Tom Benson on the broadcast? Not to make light of whatever condition he may have, but he’s not all there. That was poor decision-making all around. It just makes people sad. I’m sad now because of it, and these 22 points by Jordan Crawford are…

Wayne Selden 11 Points Full Highlights (3/17/2017)

It’s not often that you see 10-dayers come to their new NBA team and start right away. If it does happen, it’s usually a team that’s blatantly tanking. Not a team like the Pelicans, who still have vague playoff hopes with their freshly assembled twin towers. Why not start E’Twaun Moore? He sucks, but at…

Solomon Hill Career High 30 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (3/17/2017)

Solomon Hill’s name is one that gets brought up often in conversations about the worst contracts in the NBA. And for good reason; he’s getting paid 12 million per year to be an inefficient role-player. Don’t talk to me about defense. I don’t care about defense. Box-score stats aren’t everything, but they are something, and…

E’Twaun Moore 18 Points Full Highlights (3/15/2017)

Much ado has been made about how the Pelicans have no scorers at all surrounding DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis, unless you count Jrue Holiday. You should also count Alexis Ajinca but that’s not relevant because he doesn’t play. Anyway, the Pellies finally got a good scoring performance out one of their role-players when E”””’Tw””au””n…
