Pelicans' E'Twaun Moore: Held scoreless in 22 minutes Sunday

Moore finished with no points (0-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds and three assists across 22 minutes in Sunday's 91-81 loss to the Mavericks.

Moore had been on a bit of a hot streak heading into Sunday with nine double-digit scoring efforts in his last 11 games, but there's reason to believe that the scoreless effort against the Mavericks could be the beginning of a downward slide. In the six games since Jrue Holiday's return from personal leave, Moore more so than starting point guard Tim Frazier has seen his playing time tail off, as he's averaged just 23.3 minutes per game in those contests, compared to 30.0 minutes per game in his 11 appearances that preceded that. It appears that coach Alvin Gentry will stick with Moore in the starting five, but he'll need to be supremely efficient in order to continue to consistently hit double figures in more limited minutes.
