Jrue Holiday got loose for owners in 25 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Cavs, hitting 5-of-10 shots (including a three) for 13 points, seven rebounds, five assists and two steals.
The Pelicans don’t play again until Monday night and that gave Alvin Gentry some room to try and get what turned out to be a huge win. Owners shouldn’t get too confident after this outcome but it does indicate that there is light at the end of this tunnel. Holiday is going to be brought off the bench under the current roster configuration so his time off doesn’t impact the rotation now that Tyreke Evans is back in the fold.
