Some of you have asked me about the final play of regulation where the Bucks decided to go without a timeout and Holiday worked in isolation before ultimately not getting a shot off.

Remember two seasons ago when the Pelicans started 6-22 then they got hot and Zion came back and they went on a tear and then almost (should’ve) made the playoffs? I’m getting similar vibes – 10:41 PM

After a Herb Jones cut to the rim for the hoop, the Pelicans come up with a key stop on Jrue Holiday after the timeout. Devonte’ Graham sank both free throws.

Jones comes up with another well-timed cut for a layup, putting #Pelicans up 114-112 at 0:27. Jrue (who has career-best 40 pts) drove into the paint but was stuck with nowhere to go before Bucks called timeout. NOLA coaches wanted a 3-second violation on Jrue but no call – 10:30 PM

Jrue Holiday jumper ties it at 112. He’s got 40 points, a new regular season career high. – 10:28 PM

That’s three times, I think, the Pelicans have failed to catch fastball passes on the night — and Jrue Holiday cans a long two jumper to tie things up at 112 with 51.0 seconds remaining. – 10:28 PM

Made contact with Ingram on the corner 3. And got called for the Zaza. Three FTs and the ball. – 10:25 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Big ruling against Bucks, who pick up flagrant foul on Ingram 3. Ingram gets 3 shots, plus Pels get ball up 1 at 2:17 of OT – 10:24 PM

Jrue Holiday is doing everything he can for Milwaukee right now.
He’s tied his career high with 38 points. He’s at a career-high 33 FGA right now as well. – 10:23 PM

Kane Pitman @KanePitman
Surely I wasn’t the only one wondering if Jrue knew how little time was left. That man was not in a hurry. Lucky he didn’t make it because it would not have counted. – 10:16 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Wild final minute. Jrue had a chance to win it at the buzzer with a deep 3, but it rolled off the rim. Was that even before the horn? Seemed very close. Bucks were a little casual getting the ball up the court given how little time was left after defensive board – 10:16 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Free basketball in New Orleans.
Josh Hart’s jumper doesn’t go.
Jrue Holiday’s shot wouldn’t have counted anyway.
Pels and Bucks, tied at 103. – 10:16 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Josh Hart misses the short baseline jumper and Jrue Holiday’s 3-point attempt at the buzzer JUST rims out.
Headed to OT. – 10:16 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory
Jrue was a little casual with the ball on the last possession. Had to jack one up from deep at the buzzer and missed.
We’re headed to OT. Both teams tied at 103. – 10:15 PM
Christian Clark @cclark_13
Josh Hart got a pretty clean go-ahead look and missed. To overtime we go. – 10:15 PM

Pat Connaughton gets a great look at a catch-and-shoot 3 to tie it. He missed.

Rest of the Pelicans: 4-22 – 10:09 PM

Graham coming up with big shots again in this 4Q. Sinks another 3 for 100-95 lead. Bucks call timeout before automatically losing one in four seconds (3:03 left) – 10:09 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
That’s Devonte’s 6th triple of the game and it couldn’t have come at a better time, giving the Pelicans a 100-95 lead over the Bucks with 3:03 left.
Graham has now hit 11 3-pointers in the last two games — his best such stretch of the season. 🔥 – 10:09 PM

Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Bucks challenge was successful, turning Cousins charge into a Pels block. It looked like before the challenge NOLA coaches were urging refs to put ball in play, because Budenholzer was creating his own extra time to make a decision by standing in the way of the inbound – 10:03 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory
What a crazy pass by Herb Jones – 10:03 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer wins the challenge & DeMarcus Cousins has three fouls again. – 10:02 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
As @adaniels33 explained on the broadcast, Boogie didn’t have a chance to get his second foot planted – and the foul is now charged to Graham. Right call. – 10:02 PM
Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
Herb Jones understands the NBA game so much better than Nickeil Alexander-Walker. It’s striking. – 10:02 PM

Grayson Allen has a chance to set a season-high in points scored and a career-high in threes made in a game. #Bucks10:01 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Mike Budenholzer with a challenge now. It’s a charge on DeMarcus Cousins for now.
Budenholzer wants them to look at whether or not he was given the space he needed to land to catch the basketball. – 10:00 PM

Pelicans off to a 14-10 start to the fourth quarter and there’s fantastic energy in the building right now. Lots of hustle out there and New Orleans playing with the type of pace Willie Green wants to see. Only question is, can they sustain it for another 7+ minutes? – 9:58 PM

That’s Jonas Valančiūnas’ first basket since 8:55 in the third quarter. If New Orleans wants to win, I think he’ll need to score more in the final 8:41… – 9:54 PM

End of the 3rd: Pelicans 77, Bucks 77

Pels are 7-25 on 3s, 14-22 on FTs. Gotta make shots when a team is sitting in a zone as long as the Bucks have tonight. – 9:45 PM
Christian Clark @cclark_13
Pels had a 10-point lead in the third, but they gave it up. Tied at 77 headed into the fourth. Time to see if New Orleans can get a “clutch” win that doesn’t involve a Devonte’ Graham game winner? – 9:45 PM

Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Jrue has been exceptionally aggressive and might get 30 shots up at this rate, with Giannis and Middleton both DNPs. He’s 10/20 on FGs in his 25 mins. Jones has bothered him on a couple plays, scrapping for the ball and getting a steal/deflection, but Holiday in the paint a ton – 9:34 PM

Jrue Holiday has 20 points on 19 shots. #Bucks need to find a way to get Grayson Allen and Pat Connaughton involved a bit more offensively. – 9:30 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Connaughton is 0-for-5 from 3 tonight, so he makes the extra pass to Allen and the Bucks have answered with a quick 7-0 run.
Still fighting and staying in this thing. They’re down, 64-61, with 6:51 left in the third quarter though. – 9:30 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Valanciunas (18 pts, 8/12 FGs) has been the focal points of #Pelicans offense for the entire 3Q so far. He’s been so effective Bucks are starting to run other defenders at him when he catches the ball in the paint, creating open shots for others – 9:29 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Bucks with a quick six points – lead down to six. Though they’re still just 6-for-28 from deep. – 9:28 PM

The same way the NBA has decided in the past to intervene when franchises became bad for business, it’s overdue in addressing the medical treatment of star players in New Orleans. AD, Jrue, Eric Gordon, etc., dealt with bad injury luck down there. It’s time to step in for Zion. – 8:59 PM

Nickeil Alexander-Walker just picked up a technical foul for waving off the referee after being called for a personal foul on Nwora.
Pelicans have really mucked up the end of this first quarter. – 8:38 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Milwaukee’s two season leading scorers (Holiday, Allen) who ARE playing tonight have shot combined 3/12 in 1Q, but Bucks are getting offense from other sources (Nwora 9 pts) to take lead – 8:37 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Rodney Hood, who I think is technically the Bucks center in this lineup, just went coast-to-coast and the Pelicans want a timeout.
7-0 run from the Bucks. – 8:35 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Quick six-point swing for the #Bucks starting off with a technical fouls…suddenly they have a lead. – 8:34 PM

Rough start from Jrue Holiday. He has missed all six of his shot attempts thus far, which is just as many shots as he missed in the entirety of Wednesday’s win over the Pacers.
Bucks down, 21-17, with 3:29 left in the first quarter. – 8:31 PM

Of course. – 8:27 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Brandon Ingram shot 55/126 on twos (44%) in November, but is 58/108 in December, which is 54%. Gets on the board with mid-range jumper and three free throws, including off technical on Cousins from the Bucks bench – 8:26 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Pelicans up, 12-9, with 6:44 left in the first quarter.
Bucks are flying around defensively, but there is no avoiding just how small their lineups are tonight without Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bobby Portis and Brook Lopez. – 8:21 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Jrue Holiday has started 0-for-3 from the floor for the #Bucks8:20 PM
