As long as Jrue Holiday is on the court in the critical final minutes, he's not terribly concerned with whether he starts, or how much playing time he gets, in his first games back with the New Orleans Pelicans. "And for that to happen it was a shock at first, but through it we just stayed with our faith", Jrue said. But right now, the team has one of its best players back in the fold and on the court and there is optimism that New Orleans still has time to right this ship, having won three of its last five games. The 26-year-old said he usually prefers to unplug from the rest of the National Basketball Association during the season - the latest season of "Game of Thrones" is awaiting him - but he was tuned in to League Pass while waiting out his wife's recovery.

Davis contributed a team-high 38 points in the win over Portland, adding six assists and four blocks while raising his season average to 31.2 points per game. "They were all really encouraging in passing the ball and looking for me, so it felt really good".
"As far as flow and what we were trying to do, it was probably the best our offense has looked", Gentry said. Gentry said he can envision Holiday and Frazier playing together in stints. "Jrue is very good offensively and very good defensively", Davis said as quoted by ESPN. We've got to be smart and try to get him as many minutes as we can that make sense. "We need his shooting also". "I felt like I could play forever".
Yes, basketball desperation can occur even in mid-November, what with the Pelicans built to make the playoffs, and Anthony Davis perhaps wasting yet another all-world season on a middling lottery team. "I thought it was good, and from there I thought I'd be off", he said.
Holiday missed the Pelicans preseason and their first 12 regular season games while caring for his wife after she was diagnosed with a brain tumor while pregnant with the couple's first child. But Holiday, 26, said he feels comfortable being away given her support system.
