We got two wins. He didn't get much help from the rest of the starting five.
Game time Thursday night at the Smoothie King Center is 8 pm.
New Orleans Pelicans guards Jrue Holiday and Rajon Rondo put the Portland Trail Blazers to the sword in Tuesday night's Game 2 of the Western Conference quarterfinals, and it sounds like the Blazers should have seen it coming. He was definitely struggling with an ankle injury down the stretch against the Trail Blazers, and the Pelicans will find life hard without arguably their most reliable 3-point shooter (which would have sounded insane to start this series) in the next few games of this series.
Holiday's offensive explosion was a major factor in New Orleans' 111-102 win, but he also deserves credit for his defensive effort against Portland's All-Star point guard Damian Lillard.
New Orleans has blitzed Lillard on almost every pick-and-roll attempt, forcing the All-Star to face double teams or get the ball the out of his hands. But the opportunities that I do get, I've just got to be better.

But further evidence of sustained high pressure would be expected to be found in the minerals surrounding the diamonds , he said. Rest either went on to form bigger planetary bodies or ended up being destroyed by the sun or ejected out of the solar system.
"A little bit frustrated", Lillard said, describing his state of mind. What a team, and what a game this was.
Rondo's dagger triple came at the end of a wild sequence. However, the atmosphere could be different for New Orleans' first home playoff game since 2015.
"I didn't go out there planning to score 37 points, I went out there to be aggressive", DeRozan said. But of all of the teams for them to match up with in the first round, the Blazers were the most favorable. Turner suffered a bruised right toe in the second quarter during a fluke collision when E'Twan Moore, and was able to play just 4 minutes, 56 seconds in the second half.
Monday night's National Basketball Association playoff games featured the end of the Philadelphia 76ers winning streak and a decent but futile attempt by the Spurs to beat Golden State.
If the Trail Blazers are going to have a shot at forcing the series to come back to Portland, someone has to make a shot.

In Game 2, Holiday posted 33 points and 9 assists, looking virtually unstoppable on dribble penetration.
New Orleans was excellent from the field (51.7%), while they hit 12 out of 24 attempts from beyond the arc (50%), and the shooting percentage played the vital role in the win, while the Pelicans also had five more assists than the Blazers.
It highlights just how intricate the planning is and how each adjustment can shift a series. If the Bucks are going to win when the series heads to Milwaukee Thursday night, someone else will need to step up as well. New Orleans hedged aggressively against Lillard on ball screens for much of the game in order to get the ball out of his hands, a plan that worked out for the most part. It's why Gentry and his team are insistent on taking the long view.
"We've got a ton of confidence", Davis said. But this is what we have come to expect from "The Brow". Perhaps we can take some heart in the fact that this team appears to play best when their backs are firmly against the wall. But then the Celtics went on an 11-2 to extend their lead to 118-99 with 2:27 left to play.
"They beat us on our home floor, so we have to go home and take care of business in front of our crowd".
