Jones, Holiday lead Pelicans past Cavs 124-122
ABC News - about 1 month
NEW ORLEANS -- LeBron James stroked his beard as he sat in his locker and tried to make sense of Cleveland's recent slide. Losses to powerhouses like Golden State and San Antonio were a little easier to shake off. But Monday night's result with New Orleans All-Star Anthony Davis in street clothes was tougher to take. "We're not very good right now," James said. "A lot of it is energy and effort." Terrence Jones filled in brilliantly for the injured Davis, tying a career high with 36 points, grabbing 11 rebounds and blocking James' dunk attempt late in the fourth quarter, and the Pelicans held on for a 124-122 victory against the late-charging Cavs. "I just wanted help my team get a win and I think that's what I did," Jones said. Jrue Holiday added 33 points and 10 assists for the Pelicans, and Langston Galloway capped a 12-point night with a clean steal on James' drive in the final minute, preventing the Cavs from...

Pelicans F Dante Cunningham out 4-6 weeks with injured leg
ABC News - 3 months
Pelicans forward Dante Cunningham is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks with a fractured right fibula. Cunningham suffered the injury -- a nondisplaced proximal fibula fracture, according to a team release -- in the second quarter of the Pelicans' 117-96 victory Wednesday over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Team officials initially said he had a knee bruise. The 29-year-old is averaging 5.6 points and 3.9 rebounds in 15 games, including 10 starts, this season. A career 29.1 percent 3-point shooter, Cunningham is averaging 41 percent on 2.6 attempts per game from behind the 3-point line. The Pelicans are in the midst of a four-game winning streak with guard Jrue Holiday back in the lineup. Tyreke Evans has returned to noncontact action in practice and could rejoin the team in the near future after nine months of rehab after a third right-knee surgery in the span of nine months.

Yahoo News - 3 months
Anthony Davis turned in another dazzling individual display to guide New Orleans to only their third victory of the season with a 113-101 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday. Davis, who has been averaging just over 30 points per game for the Pelicans this season, weighed in with 38 more as New Orleans improved to 3-10.

NBA Midseason Awards: Kevin Durant Maintains Firm Grip In MVP Race
Huffington Post - about 3 years
The NBA season has reached its midway point, and here's what we know: Miami and Indiana are on a collision course in the Eastern Conference, and the potential LeBron James-Paul George matchup has hoops fans salivating because George is that good. In the West, there are legitimately six teams we can make a case for: Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Golden State, Portland, Houston and the Clippers. And, if the second half of the season is as entertaining as the first was, we are in for a real treat. With that in mind, let's take a look at my midseason awards. MVP: Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder It's hard to believe that Durant has yet to win an MVP, but that ends this season. The 25-year-old scoring dynamo is enjoying the most productive and efficient year of his career, averaging over 31 points per game to lead the league. Moreover, he's shooting 51 percent (also a career best) from the field and leads the NBA in Basketball-Reference.com's player efficiency rating and win shares. P ...

UCLA Basketball: The Birth of Apathy and the Death Spiral of College Hoops
Bruins Nation - about 3 years
College basketball used to be a special game, especially the unique and special brand of hoops founded in Westwood by a man who was not only one of the greatest coaches of all time, but one of the best human beings of all time. Now, it's a broken game used as a final pre-NBA showcase for one-and-done AAU mercenaries, with the head chair in Westwood occupied by a mediocre coach who is not only embraces nepotism to the detriment of UCLA, but is an unrepentant, arrogant, rape apologist who has done nothing but sully the UCLA name. So, if you've been paying attention, it would appear that our Bruins went to Salt Lake City last night and got beat by an inferior Utah Utes squad in a manner that calling it Lavin-esque would be unfair to Steve Lavin. But I wouldn't know. Why? I didn't watch the game. In fact, I haven't watched very many games at all this season. Actually, the more I think of it, I think I've only watched one, maybe two. And even then, I wasn't really watch ...
