Pelicans' Quincy Pondexter scores career-high 25 vs. Nets
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/25/15) Pelicans shooting guard Quincy Pondexter scored a career-high 25 points on 9 of 13 shooting, including 4 of 8 shooting from behind the arc, in his team's 102-96 win over the Nets Wednesday.
Pondexter had scored at least 20 points just once in his five-year career before Wednesday, managing 22 points in a game early last season. He played a season-high 40 minutes in the win while racking up five rebounds and two assists.
"Missing Ryan (Anderson), missing [Anthony Davis], missing Jrue (Holiday) - those are great young players," Pondexter said after the game, per the Associated Press. "We're in a playoff chase and I had to step up."
The Pelicans bring a three-game winning streak into Friday's battle with the Heat.
Pelicans will throw Quincy Pondexter 'into the fire' early
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/14/15) The Pelicans have made guard Quincy Pondexter eligible to face the Pistons in Detroit on Wednesday. According to coach Monty Williams, he plans to mix Pondexter into his rotations early, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
"You know me, I've always thrown guys into the fire and tried to let them figure it out and try to help them as best we can," Williams said. "But Quincy is a guy who can guard three positions and has shown the ability to knock down shots. He plays hard. He brings great intensity.
"Being able to put him on different scorers is first and foremost. Offensively, he'll pick up our stuff as we go along. But his defense and energy is going to help us right away."
Pondexter was acquired by the Pelicans in a three-team trade between the Celtics and the Grizzlies that was finalized on Monday. He averaged 4.5 points and 1.9 rebounds through 30 games with Memphis. Pondexter told reporters he's prepared for Williams' expectations during his second spell with the Pelicans.
"That's my job," Pondexter said. "Whatever Mont needs me to do, I'll do it. I've grown up since I was here first. I've learned how to play the game, playing D, hitting open shots and doing the little things is what's going to matter here."

The Celtics acquired forward Tayshaun Prince and a future first-round pick from Memphis. The Celtics also acquired guard Austin Rivers from New Orleans.
The Grizzlies acquired forward Jeff Green from Boston and guard Russ Smith from New Orleans. In addition, the Grizzlies will receive a traded player exception.
The Pelicans acquired forward Quincy Pondexter and a future second-round pick from the Grizzlies.
"The New Orleans Pelicans are thrilled to welcome back a high character person like Quincy Pondexter to our organization," Pelicans general manager Dell Demps said. "Quincy is a two-way player, a multi-position defender that will add toughness along with an offensive skill set that we anticipate will help the Pelicans win games.
"It was difficult to trade Austin Rivers and Russ Smith. Russ was only with the team for a short time while Austin is an intense competitor that is continuing to improve. We will miss Austin and Russ on and off the court. We thank Austin and Russ for their contributions and wish them success in the future."
