Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Philadelphia 76ers were on the winning end of a blowout for a change. Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams filled the stat sheet against the short-handed New Orleans Pelicans and the Sixers led wire-to-wire in a 96-81 win Friday night, the most lopsided of their eight victories this season. The Sixers took care of the ball, going nearly two quarters without turning it over during one stretch. Their 19-point lead in the fourth quarter was a season-best. Noel had 17 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks and Carter-Williams scored 22 with seven assists and six rebounds, but neither had to contend with two of the Pelicans best players. New Orleans big man Anthony Davis sat with a sprained left toe he suffered in Wednesdays win over Detroit and point guard Jrue Holiday, the former Sixer, missed a second game with right ankle inflammation. Robert Covington scored 18 points and Luc Mbah a Moute had 13 for the Sixers, who entered the game on a two-game skid after falling to Eastern Conference division leaders Atlanta and Toronto. Those losses came on the heels of a 3-1 stretch that included their first two home wins of the season. They are 3-16 at Wells Fargo Center. Alexis Ajinca led New Orleans with a season-high 16 points and a career-best 14 rebounds. Eric Gordon added 16 points and Jimmer Fredette scored 13 for the Pelicans, who havent won consecutive games since Dec. 16 and 18. New Orleans coach Monty Williams said Davis toe grew sore near the end of the Detroit game and didnt respond to treatment as well as the team would have liked. He said Davis and Holiday felt better, but werent where they needed to be to play. Ryan Anderson started for Davis at power forward and had eight points on 2- of-11 shooting and Tyreke Evans also scored eight filling in for Holiday again. The Sixers went more than 21 1/2 minutes without a turnover between the first and third quarters. They stretched a 50-47 halftime lead to 17 in the third quarter and 19 on three occasions in the fourth, the last when Noels hook shot made it 90-71. Earlier, they made 10 of their first 13 field goal attempts and had a 22-6 lead after scoring 11 straight points. The Sixers signed guard Larry Drew II to a 10-day contract before the game, calling him up from Sioux Falls of the NBA Development League. He scored five points in his NBA debut.

Ottawa has always felt so safe, like a second home, really. I couldnt tell you how many times Ive stayed at the Westin Hotel there, how many times Ive frequented? the Rideau Centre mall attached to it; how many times Ive strolled from the Westin to past the Chateau Laurier on the way to Parliament Hill, or maybe a walk over to the Byward Market, where my sons condo was located in the months he lived in our nations capital. Is it 40 times? Fifty? One hundred? Ive never thought to count them up, to be honest, from the time I started covering junior hockey games there in 1979 to last Thursday, when I was there for the Senators home opener. But its been a lot. And as I sat on a plane today in Toronto, waiting to take off for New York, reading the horrific Twitter updates of possible shooters on the loose, a brave reservist of the Canadian Forces killed at the National War Memorial, of possible shootings elsewhere in the area, including the mall? I was casually strolling through last week, well, its almost incomprehensible. In this world we live in, it shouldnt be incomprehensible but it still is. I arrived in Ottawa from New York late Thursday morning last week, checked into the Westin though my room wasnt going to be ready for another hour. So I did what Ive done countless times before, take the elevator up to the third floor and into the Rideau Centre. I guess it had been almost a year since I was there last -- Daniel Alfredssons return as a member of the Detroit Red Wings last November-- so I was surprised to discover the malls street level food court and my long-time Tim Hortons was gone, under construction apparently, so I searched out the new food court at the opposite end of the mall. No Tims, apparently, but it was teeming with people and as I sat down at a table with my lunch, I happened to be seated close to a large group of teenagers, obviously on lunch break from their school. Its funny to watch kids interact with each other sometimes. You never know what youre going to get but this group of kids, spread out over two or three tables, struck me as maybe the nicest, happiest kids you could possibly imagine. They came in all shapes and sizes, all colours and nationalities, but what struck me was how incredibly kind and considerate and caring they were to each other. They couldnt have been happier, sharing each others company?, smiling, laughing, seemingly no boundaries or walls between them or the different tables they were sitting at. I watched them, was maybe even awed by them, for a good 15 minutes. In faact, it so made an impression on me I briefly thought about tweeting that I just saw a group of high school kids in Ottawa who made me feel really good about the world, about our community, how uplifting it was to see such inherently good or nice kids, or so it seemed to me.dddddddddddd I thought of their parents and how pleased they must be at how well, at face value anyway, their kids looked to be turning out. I thought better of tweeting something, though, not feeling like opening a door to Twitter trolls, but as I went about my business in the mall -- going over to Hudsons Bay Co. to get a new watch battery; stopping by Chapters to see if my book was on display; dropping into Starbucks for a tea before going back to the hotel to get my room -- I thought about how much I enjoy Ottawa, how safe and comfortable it always is there, how maybe more than any Canadian city I visit, it feels like home. It was a good day and it ended as it started: happily, relaxing with friends and work colleagues in the hote?l bar after broadcasting the Sens home opener, a victory that sent everyone in Ottawa home happy that night. And then came today and the horrifying news from the Canadian capital. Of course, my thoughts are, first and foremost, with ?Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, who was killed standing guard at the War Memorial, and his family and friends. I thought about the brave first responders who put themselves in harms way when everyone else is running to safety. But I also thought of my friends and colleagues who were today at the Westin for tonights (now postponed) Toronto-Ottawa game, the same as I was last Thursday for the Senators and Colorado Avalanche game, and how something like affects everyone. And amid the reports of the mall and the hotels and the schools and the office buildings downtown being locked down with reports of gun fire ringing out, I thought of those high school kids and I wondered how they must be feeling, how different it would have been from when I saw them last week. None of us are naive enough to deny the existence of evil. Its all around us and it doesnt discriminate, not by country or city or town or village, so we shouldnt be surprised when it violently appears out of nowhere. When it does, theres no immunity. Which is what makes today such a difficult one for everyone everywhere. But? Im sure it wont be long before Im in Ottawa again and Im going to go the mall and I hope I see those kids, still happy and smiling, doing their part to make sure good triumphs over evil. Stay safe, Ottawa. Stay strong.
