Without any doubt, it was.
The first game of the series left me with more questions than I had before the start of the playoffs. "I don't mind that". The Pelicans are playing just fine without him and one of the reasons why is Anthony Davis. Game 4 will tip off at 4:00. Holiday has also been brilliant defensively, particularly when tasked with guarding Damian Lillard. Normally he'd be too small, but Pelicans are starting E'Twaun Moore at small forward, so he should be fine defensively. Stotts says he's unsure about Turner's prospects for returning later in the series. The Pelicans shot superbly in the game -.529 from the field, .407 from 3-point range, .864 from the free-throw line. But we'll wait for the results before jumping to conclusions on that.All of this can be put into summation by saying this: Alvin Gentry has a squad of savvy veteran players that mesh, and he's learned to treat them as such.
"It's just frustrating to fight an entire season for home court and come out and not perform individually or as a team in the first two games of a playoff series", he said.
AT&T and Verizon have been working together to screw you
The eSIM technology is featured on devices made by Google and Apple, including the Pixel smartphone and Apple Watch, respectively. The reports about the investigation come as AT&T completed the fifth week of an antitrust trial brought by the U.S.
Lillard's remarks didn't sit well with the Pelicans.
"I knew I was capable to have games like this, but I never want to force any shots and always want to play simple, play for my teammates the same way they play for me", Mirotic said.
Terry Rozier, Boston Celtics: Injuries have paved the way for Rozier to showcase his talent, most recently with a 23-point, 8-assist effort in game two against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Last night, the New Orleans Pelicans we're energized and looked to deliver a strong uppercut to the Portland Trailblazers. Rajon Rondo had 16 points and 11 assists while Jrue Holiday added 16 points and seven boards.

Goossen is best known for training the late Diego Corrales and the legendary corner work he did for the Diego Corrales vs. He was looking at me when I came out, but he stopped. "I wanna become a world champion either this year or next year".
"Every guy in the (locker room) would tell you he's the backbone of our team", Gentry said. The two teams were only separated by two-tenths of a point in their regular season net rating, with the lower-seeded Pelicans actually slightly ahead. He hit three of his first four 3-point attempts and triumphantly raised his fist to the exuberant crowd after one of his long-range rainbows went through. Wade had 28 points in 26 minutes in Game 2, but at age 36, there's no guarantee he'll consistently summon that sort of performance.
Davis and Jrue Holiday each scored over 40 points in the victory. He averaged 0.99 points per possession, which ranked in the Top 25 among all guards in the league.
Connaughton's presence will open things up for Lillard and McCollum.
Simmons finished with 17 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists. If New Orleans has any shot at what would be one of the biggest playoff upsets in National Basketball Association history, they'll need all hands aboard to do it. I said his style of play would be less effective in the postseason, and he made me eat my words. Perhaps we can take some heart in the fact that this team appears to play best when their backs are firmly against the wall.
