Pelicans happy with 'energy guy' Dante Cunningham
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pelicans reserve forward Dante Cunningham is averaging just 5.5 points and 3.1 rebounds per game since joining the team in early December. However, it is his play that doesn't show up in the stat column that is really impressing his coach and teammates, per NBA.com.

"He doesn’t back down," coach Monty Williams said of Cunningham’s willingness to take on difficult assignments. "He gives us so many intangibles that you don’t teach. We appreciate what he brings to the table.

"We looked at him as an energy guy; he can defend; he does things you don’t teach. But he’s capable of knocking down that 15- or 18-footer. He doesn’t always get the opportunities, but we know he can knock down those shots."

Forward Anthony Davis has also been impressed with the energy Cunningham has brought to the team.

"Dante has been hustling," Davis said. "That’s what we need. We need (the bench) to come out and play like that every night. In case (the starters) have a bad start, they come in and get us going. Especially with Dante, his energy and effort, and he’s able to guard multiple positions."

Warriors not happy with Pelicans' Cunningham's 'cheap shots'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Warriors will submit videotape to the NBA on what they call were "cheap shots" by Pelicans forward Dante Cunningham during Sunday's game, according to the Contra Costa Times.

Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green were struck in the face during separate second-quarter incidents. Barnes suffered a nasal fracture, chipped teeth and a mouth laceration that required stitches, while Green suffered a bloody nose as a result of a elbow/forearm hit from Cunningham.

Both forwards returned to the game Sunday, but Barnes is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game at Memphis. Coach Steve Kerr expects Barnes to wear a protective mask.

"Some people would call it physical, but that’s not physical. That’s cheap," Green said. "He didn’t put neither one of us out of the game, so you’ve got to come a little harder next time if you’re going to try to throw a cheap shot. If you’re going to do it, do it."

Kerr also called Cunningham's actions as "cheap shots" and added Cunningham made no attempt to get the ball in striking Green.

"I didn’t think either play was warranted, let’s put it that way," Kerr said.
