Pelicans Reserves Show Impressive Ball Movement

New Orleans Pelicans center Alexis Ajinca had the best game of his entire NBA career over the weekend, 28 points and 15 rebounds. So it shouldn't surprise you how the rest of this story goes...surprise, surprise, surprise, Ajinca sat out last night's home finale with an injured right shoulder. Even without their 10 'best' players, this gritty Pelicans team, made up of mostly D-League talent, continues to play the Alvin Gentry-style basketball that eluded the core group making the big bucks.
