Pelicans crush Rockets in season opener, 131-112

Anthony Davis scored 32 points and Elfrid Payton finished with a triple double as the New Orleans Pelicans got their National Basketball Association season off to a roaring start by clobbering the Houston Rockets 131-112 on Thursday (Oct 18).

"So I think we're in a good place to try to maximize everybody's talents to try to win", D'Antoni said. "We played exactly how we have to in order to beat that team". The Rockets motto has always been "3" or in the key, meaning the Rockets will either jack up a three pointer or run pick and roll to get inside the paint for a lay-up or set up a lob to Clint Capela. "We've just got to figure it all out and get them in the right spots". His thoughts on that role changed when he signed with the Rockets in free agency this summer, telling Houston's coaches he was open to whatever role would best suit the team.

"We kind of let go of the rope at the end of the first half. We obviously have some things to work on, we've got to get our legs and then go after it". And by the way National Basketball Association players, coaches and pundits are jabbering, we should all assume they will go undefeated with Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant each averaging 50 points per game, DeMarcus Cousins in the starting lineup by late-November and Klay Thompson shooting 75 percent from 3-point range. Carter-Williams played 16 minutes and had 10 points.

Zhou Qi (Out - Knee): The Rockets have listed Qi as OUT for Wednesday's game (Oct. 17) against the Pelicans. Allen, a Microsoft co-founder who also owned the Seattle Seahawks, died Monday in Seattle from complications of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, according to his company Vulcan Inc. Tonight will be the first game of his career that Melo hasn't been in the starting 5.

League Most Valuable Player James Harden flirted with a triple double, finishing with 18 points, 10 assists and 9 rebounds, but it wasn't enough as the Rockets failed to match New Orleans' season-opening intensity, especially on defense.

"For all you analytics guys, we're not winning 82 (games) this year".

Pelicans: Host Kings on Friday.

Rockets: At Lakers on Saturday.

Harden led the league by averaging a career-best 30.4 points last season to become Houston's first MVP since Hakeem Olajuwon in 1994. This is Mirotic's first full season with New Orleans, as the Pelicans acquired him in a trade last February.

Anthony will come off the bench on Wednesday with James Ennis starting at small forward.
