With a Suns loss to Boston tonight, the Pels would move into first place in the Western Conference
Final: Pelicans 104, Pistons 98Williamson 29 pts, 10 rebs, 5 asstsMurphy 20 ptsMarshall 17 pts, 5 rebsPels grind out a physical win to give them their 5th straight victory, improving to 16-8. Naji Marshall and Trey Murphy both came up with some huge performances in this one
Trey Murphy makes both free throws to give him his 7th career game with 20+ points
Jose Alvarado stormed on the court, holding his side, to tell Naji Marshall he has to take that open 3-pointer on the last possession.He's right.
Trey Murphy has a career-high 5 assists.
Naji Marshall is having a great night off the bench.
Jose Alvarado (rib contusion) is officially done for the game, per the Pelicans. X-rays on his ribs came back negative.
The call was overturned, which gives Dyson Daniels his 5th foul. Pels now are without Jose (injury) and Dyson (foul trouble). Even more pressure on CJ to finally find some rhythm on offense.
End of the 3rd: Pelicans 79, Pistons 73Williamson 24 pts, 8 rebsMurphy 12 ptsValanciunas 11 pts, 10 rebsPistons still hanging around with the Pels struggling some to find consistent offense. With Jose looking like he might be done for the night CJ/Dyson will have to step up
Jose walked off with some help and he's headed to the locker room. Looked like he was in a good bit of pain.
Jose Alvarado is down on the floor after taking a shot to the stomach. The whole team has surrounded him on the floor as he's trying to recover.

Bojan Bogdanovic gets hit with two quick T's and he's gone. He didn't waste anytime getting whatever he needed to off his chest.
Gotta always be aware of the sneakiness when Jose is on the floor
