It didnt take long for Jimmer to fall into an all to familiar role as the Pelicans got beat by the undefeated Memphis Grizzlies 93-81 on Monday night.
Tyreke Evans led five Pelicans in double figures with 21 points to go along with seven rebounds and four assists. Anthony Davis chipped in with 14 points and eight rebounds while Eric Gordon and Jrue Holiday contributed 11 and 10 points respectively.
The Grizzlies had three players finish with double-doubles in the win led by Marc Gasol who totaled 16 points and 11 rebounds to go along with three blocks. Zach Randolph finished with 15 points and 11 boards while Tony Allen had 12 points and 11 rebounds.
On a night where the Pelicans shot very poorly (29 of 86 from the floor, including 4 of 24 from behind the arc), Fredette got his first DNP of the season.
Up next for Jimmer and New Orleans is a matchup with the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday night.
