Clues about when Abacha -- -- lose in samarra it's the galleries and with that everything else that -- -- not Monday morning. The sports department -- good morning David good morning everyone the pelicans came out strong against the spurs building up a fourteen point lead. The disaster struck in the fourth quarter San Antonio outscored -- -- 38 to nineteen. Which led to a 102 to 95 comeback win over the tells you -- Owens had no answer for Tony Parker who scored 32 points while dishing out nine assists. Pelicans head coach Monty Williams says this one game doesn't raise the fact that they have been playing better ball of late. -- -- -- -- -- Certainly not down on our team because of the way we've -- employees the last three weeks we just in a game where you needed two or three guys to step up employers. It's a full court does have an off night. New Orleans gets back on the court tomorrow night when they host the Atlanta Hawks all of you watch the Super Bowl you were hardly alone. Even with the blow out on the field the Seahawks rout of the Broncos which -- watched by 111. Point five million viewers. Making the Super Bowl the most watched TV program for the fourth time in five years. Free agent safety Isa Abdul -- who was cut by the saints in January is back on an NFL roster. He was awarded all waivers to the Detroit Lions hades had twelve tackles and a pass break up eleven games this past season. And top ranked Syracuse Q celebrated its ascension to the top of the AP college basketball rankings. With a 61 to 55 win over Notre Dame Trevor Cooney poured in 33 points at the orange improve to 22 and today for a sports talk pelicans forward Anthony Davis plus are the Seahawks a one year wonder. Or will they be a long term -- in the side of the saints and the rest of the NFC. I'm Steve Geller that your early morning -- -- sports competitiveness. AD in the house. And now -- his house action says. Should not try to talk to open it. The I'm not convincing at all that -- that hip and cool. And twist here so. I found it very interesting. That the pelicans have now stated. Without a doubt that this is Anthony davis' team that the team is gonna rise or fall with the success or failure of Anthony Davis because last year his rookie season. He didn't get as many minutes as I think some people had thought he should get an easing him into the system and he was spent a lot of time on the bank. This he is he getting the minutes that allow him to determine whether the team wins or loses is it really going to be. All about Anthony Davis. It really is this season and fourthly what happened last night was he he had an off night he went to six for 21 shooting out ended up seventeen points and Tyreke Evans also got her in the game and other key factor coming off the bench for them so without some of their. Top guy at the top guy not performing and with some of their guys coming off the bench not doing what they needed to do. It was a tough go against the you know one of the best teams in the west right now in the San Antonio Spurs taken. Have the way with some of the lesser teams in the Eastern Conference but the west is just too tough the need to be they need to have their best game every night. To go against the Western Conference that it just didn't happen and the spurs have historically been varied enough. Team to beat. For the pelicans. In the corner. Which there you go through but yet it. It's like to have New Orleans yet I can't remember the last time activist for the the pelicans slash hornets have beat the San Antonio Spurs. Gregg Popovich and that team does have money Williams is number. And I thank you Steve a document 45 minutes more sports here on WWL AMF and -- -- countless taken a look at your fog.
