Jrue Holiday feeling at home in New OrleansPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Philadelphia Inquirer on New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday:
Holiday hasn’t missed a game for the Pelicans, who improved to 14-15 with the win and remain on the fringe of playoff contention in the loaded Western Conference. During the first 29 games he averaged 15.3 points, 8.3 assists, and 4.7 rebounds in 34.3 minutes.
“He has the ability to be one of the very few two-way players who plays a lot of minutes,” Pelicans coach Monty Williams said of Holiday.
Williams added that it’s rare that a player who goes so hard at both ends of the court will play more than 25 minutes.
“Jrue does it 35-40 minutes a night and he is about as tough as they come,” Williams said.
