I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look at sports. Steve you don't wanna go there but it was a big night for the pelicans without Anthony Davis without. Tyreke Evans but I'm glad that I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth. What's funny is we're watching the game and my son five years old and goes dad where's. Words they dealers Anthony Davis and Michael he's still going through the NBA's concussion protocol. He just goes other gonna lose a Mike why can't save that just because they don't have it be Davis you can't count him out. But we have put the combination of no Anthony Davis and Tyreke Evans I was very skeptical myself. Especially with Sacramento coming and having played pretty good ball even though they drop now three in a row. On their currently one of the teams contending for a playoff spot on as well and who would have thought. That would be talking about the pelicans being in this playoff on the only three games out of that eighth spot in the Western Conference. And have really showed. They're starting to get made the coach Alvin Gentry system the up tempo scheme is working now they're moving the ball lot. I think there's a stat that when they passed the ball over when they have. Over 245 assists in the game. They're the best offense in the NBA right now and that's that's really high praise considering Europe there with the Golden State. Warriors announcement as an interesting about the department of science. Board award that was the exact opposition I have. If I had the same. Campus it's like a five year world.

Thank you very much well it was a great night for the dollar in pelican despite some key absences and the latest on the Senior Bowl beat gallery. Good morning sports good morning. Thank you Monica good morning everybody the pelicans were shorthanded not one but two of their studs but still managed to take down the Sacramento Kings won fourteen to 15. Holiday that was easily jump missile broken lives movie theaters today go write three ball up. Beckel was courtesy of the pelicans radio network the flame thrower Ryan Anderson stepped up in a big way as the team was without Anthony Davis and Tyreke Evans rhino tied a career high with 36 points Jrue Holiday added 25 with eight assists as the Pelz one for the sixth time in their last eight games. That we sixteen Senior Bowl the place for some of the nation's top upperclassmen to impress pro scouts and coaches with the latest on the event here saints' sideline reporter Kristian garic. If you asked me to rank the areas of need for the New Orleans Saints the list would be simple anybody on the defensive side of football but more specifically interior on the defense tackle position maybe a defensive -- certainly a weak side linebacker the good news for the saints the defensive line is loaded with talent at this year's Senior Bowl in particular Vernon Butler Sheldon day along with Jarron read out of Alabama so more importantly breaking down guys that are really stood out who's helped their case this week at the Senior Bowl first and foremost it's Noah Spence we all knew he was pelted. But he comes character concerns having gone from Ohio State getting kicked out of that program to eastern Kentucky but he's been impressive at the Senior Bowl also defensive end out of Penn State Karl massive getting a lot of attention not so much for Sean opened the big massive Baylor head defender at six foot. 9275. Pounds he's been a bit on impressive from mobile Alabama at the Senior Bowl Kristian garic W. WL sports and believe it or not opening day in College Baseball is just around the corner and Alicia will have their first pre season practice today. The tigers are ranked number five in the 26 team USA today baseball coaches poll which was released yesterday the Tony sixteenth season opens on February 19. Vs Cincinnati in Alex box stadium. Today F Ford join us for an early edition of double coverage with Kristian garic anti Bobby Hebert live from the Rouse is at 4350 old shell road in Mobile, Alabama. Will you watch the NFL Pro Bowl and in the Payton Brees Eric you think this to be able to the from the Carolina Panthers in the NFC south I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look at sports sixty even though Anthony Davis didn't play yet the good news he's a reserve right. Oh yeah he did make it as he reserved to the MBA all star game unfortunately there's a lot of hype you know going into this season. And everyone thought maybe he'd be on the first team we all star selection but the team started out kind of rough this year and I think. I took some time for everyone to gel and the new head coach's system. Arm but making it as a reserve is still you know a great honor and I'm sure will be a nice bonus attitude his paycheck is. Now look what they just don't play for the love of the game is just for fun and yet it's called gas that I bought. At panther. Yeah outline I'm gonna make it on the list as well so what the bad night for the for the pelicans I was happy to see they. Yeah and things I think are starting to turn around in a positive direction for the team I know it was so hard at this started the year to watch them in. Tom just did the losses kept piling up and questions about the day make the right move of moving on from Monty Williams and we still really don't know. If that's the case but at least. They're starting to play as a more cohesive unit and it without Tyreke Evans and Anthony Davis the lineup. I think neither really give them a shot. In this game out coming up because the Sacramento team that is played well this season they're up in the playoff contention as well but the pelicans have been holding home court really well defending home. And they have another game this Saturday coming up against the Brooklyn nets hopefully getting close to that eight spot in the Western Conference. Great great before you go this is the first really big big big weekend for carnival 26 yes Z honey what's your strategy do you do a lot of things both weekends at UEFA though the final weekend before.
