“AD and I talked about that early. I was not about to have him first game back play 38, 40 minutes, 39 minutes or whatever,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry told reporters after the game. “We had talked about playing between 22 and 25 minutes. That’s why he didn’t go back in the game. I thought he played well, went in there and did a good job. . . . He was typical Anthony.”The Pelicans hung on for the win and improved to 25-31; they’re now five games out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference.SN’s Blair Berry contributed to this report. MORE: Bucks owner happy to hear team on Davis’ list Van Gundy also took a swipe at the NBA for threatening to fine New Orleans ownership $100,000 per game if it were to bench a healthy Davis at any point. Davis returned to the lineup Friday after missing nine games with a finger injury (New Orleans went 3-6 in those games), and he has said he wants to play in the Pelicans’ remaining games.ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy. @ScottDKushner @nbrownadvocate pic.twitter.com/PINUqw697V— David Folse II (@davidfolse) February 9, 2019Van Gundy wasn’t finished. He essentially called the New Orleans market, including its newspaper, the Times-Picayune, apathetic.Jeff Van Gundy is making some completely asinine comments right now.”Very passive boos. This fan base just isn’t passionate. They’re just not. And that’s why it’s a half-empty arena, too.”— Mason Ginsberg (@MasonGinsberg) February 9, 2019Jeff Van Gundy is ranting again. “I don’t even know if they have a daily beat writer” Damn, @_Andrew_Lopez pic.twitter.com/E5Z4ravxdF— Renato Mazariegos (@RPMSports18) February 9, 2019For the record, Andrew Lopez is the Pels beat writer for the Times-Picayune, and word of Van Gundy’s crack got back to him quickly.TRADE DEADLINE: Lakers left with tough questionsHey @espn … Can someone let Jeff know that the Pelicans have some great beat writers covering this team?You can find my coverage over at https://t.co/OxfYl0M5ZG https://t.co/NdxOh6vcOl— Andrew Lopez (@_Andrew_Lopez) February 9, 2019Lopez got in a jab at the Worldwide Leader himself:He might know a little more about who was covering if you guys didn’t fire @JustinVerrier from covering the team…— Andrew Lopez (@_Andrew_Lopez) February 9, 2019(Verrier is now with The Ringer.)Further, Friday’s crowd sounded pretty engaged with it booed Davis during pregame introductions and into the first half. Yes, it’s just another night in The Association.UPDATE: Davis had a huge night with 32 points, nine rebounds and three blocks in just 25 minutes, but he also sat the entire fourth quarter and watched as the Timberwolves tried to rally. Jeff Van Gundy had himself quite a first quarter in New Orleans on Friday night.The ESPN NBA analyst and former coach came down on the side of Pelicans management in its dealings with All-Star forward Anthony Davis, who has told the front office (through agent Rich Paul) that he wants to be traded. The Lakers tried to pry Davis from the Pelicans and pair him with Paul client LeBron James prior to Thursday’s trade deadline but were rebuffed.

In the final game Saturday, Van Kozak provided steady play for the Chill to lead the Kootenay squad to a narrow 40-36 win over DiPP Basketball academy from Kelowna.Once again, the Chill got off to a quick start going up 16 points in the first half before the DiPP squad made a comeback late in the second half.Pulling within two points, DiPP put fullcourt pressure on the Chill who easily broke the man-to-man coverage and converted on easy transition.The win allowed Kootenay to capture the Co-Tournament Championship.Kootenay is back on the road this weekend, travelling to Kelowna to compete in the Kelowna Minor Basketball Association tournament.Chill U13 squad finish with 1-2 markKootenay Chill U13 Club team coached by Mike Nagle finished the Pro-Hops tournament with a 1-2 record.This was the first sanctioned tournament for many of the players.“The coaching staff and parents were very proud of the squad and the experience gained,” Phelan said.First game the Chill played the U12 DiPP Academy of Kelowna. After going up by 10 points in the first half, the Chill’s shooting cooled off and ended up dropping a hard-fought game 36-30. Second game the Chill played Pro-Hop U12/U13 of Kamloops and came away with the win, 46-20, with even contributions from the whole team. Third and final game, the Chill were up against a young but talented Kamloops Hoops team. The game was back and forth for much of the first half with each team taking leads, until the Kamloops Hoops squad implemented full court pressure.The inexperienced Chill had trouble getting the ball up the court with turnovers leading to layups in transition. In the end the Chill dropped the game 58-39. The Kootenay Chill Club Basketball Team continues its impressive run on the hardwood after finishing 3-0 at the Pro-Hops Spring Tournament this past weekend in Kamloops.The Chill, consisting of players from the Trafalgar Thunder High School program, posted wins against opposition from host Kamloops, Gibsons from the Sunshine Coast and Kelowna.Club basketball is played outside the high school season, allowing players and coaches to gain more experience in preparation for the next season beginning in the fall.Travelling with only eight players, the Chill gained some revenge on a Pro-Hops team from Kamloops that posted a 19-point earlier in the season by winning 56-26.“After preparing all week to play what we thought was going to be the same team Friday night at the Tournament Capital Centre (TCC), we played their U14 team and dominated start to finish,” said Chill coach Jeremy Phelan.Kelton Forte paced the Chill attack and was named Kootenay player-of-the-game.Second game Saturday morning, Kootenay overcame a strong pressure defence to defeat Gibsons 48-39.“After going up 16 points in the first half, SCBC made a comeback to tie the game at 32-32 late in the second half,” Phelan explained.“However, we ended up breaking their press and scoring easy baskets en route to the win.”Phelan said Mateo Katoaka and Nathaniel Pan earned player-of-the-game honours for Kootenay.
