NEW ORLEANS -- It may not be time just yet for the New Orleans Pelicans to press the panic button -- it will take a few more losses before fans demand the black box with the nuclear codes -- but their 0-3 start is as bad as it gets right now in the NBA, especially since theyve squandered monster numbers by All-Star Anthony Davis in two of the three losses.Unfortunately, Pelicans fans have seen this before. Last season, injury-riddled New Orleans fell prostrate at the starting gate, losing 11 of its first 12 games to dig a hole from which it never recovered during a 30-52 season.So, when the Pelicans host the 1-2 Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night at the Smoothie King Center, coach Alvin Gentry, despite his calm demeanor after practice on Monday, knows he needs a victory, and he needs it now.I think we need a win, obviously, Gentry said. If you win a game, it takes the pressure off. We have to establish something at home and be able to know that if we play our best basketball, we can win a game and not just play close.Davis is playing the role of solid soldier. He became the second player in NBA history (other than Michael Jordan) to score 50 points in a season opener since 1963-64 when he scored 50 (with 16 rebounds, seven steals, five assists and four blocks) in a 107-102 home loss to the Denver Nuggets, and he followed that up with 45 points in a 122-114 loss to the Golden State Warriors last Friday night.In a 98-79 road loss in San Antonio on Saturday, Davis was limited to just 18 points, lowering his scoring average to 37.7 points. Point guard Tim Frazier (13.7) and shooting guard ETwaun Moore (10.7) are the only other Pelicans scoring in double figures, and New Orleans ranks last in the league in 3-point percentage (.190) on 12-of-63 shooting.At some point, you have to make shots, Davis said. You have to start knocking them down. Were not shooting the ball well, and we have to find another way to win. And, its not just one guy. Its a couple of guys -- (rookie guard) Buddy (Hield), Solomon (Hill), Langston (Galloway). We have to find a way to make shots.Perhaps the Bucks will be the magic elixir that gives the Pelicans their first victory of the season. Milwaukees only win came on a buzzer-beating tip-in by John Henson that beat the Brooklyn Nets 110-108 on Saturday night.Coach Jason Kidd is toying with his lineup, trying to figure out the best bench rotations. Like the Pelicans, the Bucks are struggling from the outside, going 7 of 33 from long range in their two losses to Charlotte and Detroit.The Bucks, who are still figuring each other out, shot just 39 percent from the field against the Pistons.I dont think we can use that as an excuse, said guard Matthew Dellavedova, the Bucks free-agent pickup during the offseason. I think we need to get better.Kidd said he believes Dellavedova is very capable of running the point full time.I thought Delly had a great summer, being the point guard for Australia (in the Olympics), Kidd said. He ran the show, he and Patty Mills in the backcourt. Delly is a great complement to everybody. White Air VaporMax 2018 . 1 position.

SAN ANTONIO -- Utah point guard George Hill used the lessons he learned in three seasons with San Antonio to hand his former team a rare home loss.Hill had 22 points and the Jazz made a season-high 15 3-pointers, handing the Spurs their first loss of the season 106-91 on Tuesday night.He had a great game, San Antonio veteran Manu Ginobili said. For three quarters they played good solid basketball and in the fourth he just took over. Made some big shots, good plays off the pick-and-roll. Hes a great player, we know he can do it.Utah handed San Antonio only its second home loss since March 2015. The Spurs didnt lose their first home game last season until April 10 and finished 40-1 at the AT&T Center.Every loss is disappointing to me, said Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, who had a game-high 30 points. Just disappointed in our defensive effort. Our energy wasnt there in the first quarter. They were knocking down shots in the fourth quarter. They scored 33 in the fourth and thats not good either.Hill made four straight baskets starting with about 6 minutes left in the fourth, scoring 10 points to give the Jazz a 96-88 lead with 4 minutes remaining.The Spurs rallied from an anemic first quarter to capture the lead, but Hill helped steady the young Jazz with a court presence he learned under San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich.Play like youve been there before, Hill said. Coach Pop always instilled that into me my first three years here. Dont show really that much emotion, unless its part of the game, but act like youve been there before. Thats what I try to instill in the guys, move onto the next play every time.Utah needed that serenity after nearly blowing a dominant first quarter.We definitely allowed them to play too comfortable and get into a rhythm early on, San Antonio center Pau Gasol said. They were executing well, give them credit, but we didnt put enough pressure on their offense to force them to take tougher shots.The Jazz built a 12-point lead in the opening quarter by shooting 72 percent from the field and 88 percent on 3s. Utah made seven 3-pointers in the first quarter, one more than their previous season high for a game.Some of its just basketball gods, Jazz coach Snyder said. There are nights like that and then there are nights like tonight. The biggest thing for our guys is that they dont get discouraged when they miss and keep shooting.Rodney Hood finished with 19 points, Trey Lyles 15 and Shelvin Mack 14 for Utah, which finished 15 for 31 from 3-point range.It didnt matter if the Spurs contested the shots or not, Utahs shots were falling in the first quarter. San Antonio didnt panic, sticking to their rotations and sets.ddddddddddddThe Spurs erased a 47-31 deficit, going on a 15-0 run over a 6-minute span. Leonards 16-foot jumper pulled San Antonio within 47-46 and LaMarcus Aldridges 18-footer tied the game at 48.Aldridge finished with 21 points on 8-for-16 shooting.But Lyles revived Utahs offense, scoring all but two points during a 10-0 run in the third quarter that gave the Jazz a 70-63 lead they would never relinquish.Lyles finished 2 for 7 on 3-pointers and Hood was 4 for 8.TIP-INSJazz: Mack was 0 for 4 on 3-pointers this season before making his only two attempts against the Spurs. . F Boris Diaw missed his first game of the season, sitting out against his former team with a bruised right leg. Diaw, who played with San Antonio from 2012-2016, received a loud ovation when his image was shown on the video boards. Hill, who played three seasons in San Antonio, also received a loud ovation. ... Utah was winless in its two road games this season, losing by an average of 11 points.Spurs: San Antonio has a winning record in the regular season for all but 48 days since 1997. ... Jonathan Simmons made his first start of the season. Filling in for Danny Green, Simmons had two points in 29 minutes. Green is sidelined by a strained left quadriceps. ... Tony Parker is 73rd in league history with 1,084 games played, breaking a tie he had with Antawn Jamison and Dell Curry.FAVORS RETURNSDerrick Favors started for the first time this season after being limited due to a sore knee.Favors had six points and three rebounds in 16 minutes for the Jazz. He did not play in the second half as a precaution.Hes on a minutes restriction, Snyder said. Were being smart with Fav and making sure that we bring him back the right way. I think he was ready to play. I think he got a little cold when we put him back in. He wasnt quite the same, but thats why were doing what were doing.STILL A FAVORITEHill remains one of Popovichs favorite players ever, even after he helped Utah hand San Antonio a double-digit loss.He played great, especially down the stretch, Popovich said. He was very controlled, ran the show, obviously made shots. He was great.Hill made sure to hug Popovich after the game and let the veteran coach know how much he still means to him.Pop is one of the best people that came into my life, Hill said. I just asked him how his wife is doing, how hes doing and to tell him I love him.UP NEXTJazz: Host Dallas on Wednesday.Spurs: At the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday.
