The Los Angeles Clippers (9-6) play against the New Orleans Pelicans (14-14) at Smoothie King Center

Game Time: 8:00 PM EST on Friday November 19, 2021

Los Angeles Clippers 34, New Orleans Pelicans 16 (Q2 11:15)

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
#Pelicans shot 4/9 on 3s in 1Q, which was very needed, because they were 2/13 on 2s. New Orleans needs to cut the turnovers (6) as well, especially the ones that came from high-risk decisions – 8:37 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Pelicans started to throw a zone at Clippers, and Luke Kennard ended the first quarter with a zone busting wing 3.
Clippers up 29-16, their second-best first quarter of the season and fewest points allowed. – 8:37 PM

New Orleans Pelicans @PelicansNBA
First 12 minutes down 🏀

Will Guillory @WillGuillory
End of the 1st half: Clippers 29, Pelicans 16
Valanciunas 8 pts
NAW 6 pts
Pels shot 27.3 percent from the field, 2-13 on 2s (!!!). The guard play is lacking in a major way with Devonte’ Graham out. – 8:36 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
First quarter is over here in New Orleans:
Clippers 29, Pelicans 26
Zubac is in the locker room with both nostrils plugged; looked like team was having trouble stopping bleeding.
Pts in the paint: LAC 20, NOP 4
8 Clippers have scored. – 8:35 PM

Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
That Jaxson Hayes bucket with a minute left in the first quarter made him the third Pelican to score in the quarter.
Also, the Pelicans have 16 points in the first 11 minutes. – 8:33 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Ivica Zubac has left the bench and is going to the locker room. – 8:32 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Clippers center Ivica Zubac is being tended to on the bench, where he’s sitting with gauze up his nose. – 8:31 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Pelicans have as many turnovers as made field goals, trailing the Clippers 22-14 with 2:36 left in the first quarter.
Maybe it’s role reversal night and they’ll play better in 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarters? 🤞🏻 – 8:30 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Nola averages 15.6 turnovers per game — they’ve got five in the early going tonight (none of them leading directly to points, however).
And the Clippers are up 22-14, with 2:36 to play in the first. They have two turnovers so far. – 8:30 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Ty Lue on game 2 of a second night of a back-to-back, and he’s using his subs much more liberally than he did Sunday against the Bulls. Every starter has had a rest already, and Jackson is back in after a short rest.
Clippers up 22-14 with 2:36 left in first quarter – 8:29 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
One night after scoring 36 points in the paint in Memphis the Clippers have scored 18 … in the first 10 minutes. – 8:28 PM

Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
Not sure Pelicans fans have ever booed a guy every touch for simply being bad.
Usually it’s the way they left, or comments made, etc…
But they are just booing Eric Bledsoe because he sucked. – 8:27 PM

Christian Clark @cclark_13
That was Jonas Valanciunas’ 18th made 3. He made 21 last season. This is game 17. – 8:26 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Jonas Valanciunas with his 2nd three-pointer of the night, but the Pelicans trailing Clippers 21-14. – 8:26 PM

Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
3-point specialist Jonas Valanciunas at it again. – 8:26 PM

Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Domino effect of Graham DNP is Kira Lewis Jr. back in the rotation at backup PG. Lewis didn’t play any of the last three games, most recently on the floor a week ago vs. Nets – 8:23 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Kira Lewis Jr. seeing his first action since the loss to the Brooklyn Nets three games ago. – 8:23 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Another missed FT for Nico Batum… who is off to a rough start there this season. Now 5 of 10. – 8:22 PM

Los Angeles Clippers @LAClippers
Threadin’ the needle.
@Paul George ➡️ @Nicolas Batum pic.twitter.com/NERHN1KiWi8:22 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Clippers really got bailed out on the latest offensive possession, a mess of miscommunication. Bledsoe wasn’t on the correct side of the floor, and Paul George was down low when he was meant to start up high, per Ty Lue’s yelling. But Batum got fouled on a 3-pointer. – 8:22 PM

Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Not enough booing of Eric Bledsoe tonight – 8:19 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Not that it was a high bar to clear, but Eric Bledsoe has already surpassed last night’s scoring total in the first five minutes of tonight’s game.
Clippers up 15-6, with Paul George matching New Orleans’ point total with 6:54 left in first quarter – 8:19 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Strong start for the Clippers who’ve taken an 11-0 run to lead 15-6 early on. Eric Bledsoe is booed each time he touches the ball but has found Zubac for an assist and has 5 points. – 8:18 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Clippers on an 11-0 run now and lead 15-6. Nickeil’s two triples the only points for the Pelicans through the first five minutes. – 8:17 PM

New Orleans Pelicans @PelicansNBA
Nickeil to start the night!!

Nickeil Alexander-Walker has hit two straight 3s to give the Pelicans a 6-4 lead over the Clippers – 8:13 PM

Will Guillory @WillGuillory
Pels fans give Eric Bledsoe some heavy boos after his first time touching the ball tonight – 8:12 PM

Christian Clark @cclark_13
Loud boos for Eric Bledsoe on his first touch of the game. – 8:12 PM

Golden State Warriors PR @WarriorsPR
Jordan Poole has his fourth career 20-point half with 22 points on 9-of-13 from the field (4-of-6 from three), two points shy of his career high for a half (24 points in the first half on May 14, 2021 vs. New Orleans). – 8:07 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
A smattering of boos for former Pelican Eric Bledsoe during pregame introductions in New Orleans. This building feels about 1/4 full. – 8:06 PM
