Pelicans-83 at Grizzlies-89 OT
These teams combined to shoot 36% from the field for the game. This was not a pretty game by any means, at 75-75 at the end of regulation, the Pelicans came close to earning their first win of the season. Mike Conley took over in overtime to lead this team to victory.
For the first time this season Anthony Davis didn’t carry 110% of the load for Pelicans as he scored just 10 points on 3-13 shooting in the OT loss. Instead Lance Stephenson led the team with 21 points and replaced starter Dante Cunningham in the first unit very early on.
The Grizzlies were led with 21 points by Jamychal Green who continues to look like the replacement to Zach Randolph. Speaking of Randolph his demotion to the second unit has yielded good results early on this season, but Z-bo struggled tonight with 10 points on just 5-18 shooting. James Ennis had his first double double of the season registering 16 points and 10 rebounds.
