Jimmer Fredette was back on the floor as the New Orleans Pelicans knocked off the Oklahoma City Thunder 112-104 on Tuesday night.
On a night where Kevin Durant made his season debut, it was Anthony Davis who made the biggest impression. Davis finished with 25 points, 10 rebounds, six steals, four assists and four blocks. The Pelicans also got huge nights out of Tyreke Evans and Ryan Anderson in the win. Evans had 30 points on 14 of 24 shooting and five assists while Anderson had 23 points and 11 rebounds. Jrue Holiday added a double-double of his own with 16 points and 10 assists to go along with five rebounds, three steals and a pair of blocks.
Durant led the Thunder with 27 points, but had only three rebounds as well as five turnovers in his return to the floor. Russell Westbrook chipped in with 21 points, seven assists, six rebounds and two steals, but was just 6 of 20 from the floor and had seven turnovers as the Thunder fell to 5-13.
Fredette played 4:09 during the first half and went scoreless on two attempts from the floor, including misses on a midrange jumper and a lay-up. He did manage to record a steal, but had no other stats in his limited time on the floor.
Up next for Fredette and the Pelicans is a Thursday night game with the Golden State Warriors.
