Watch Nicolas Batum nutmeg Omer Asik with pass to Kemba Walker


Omer Asik guarding a wing player in space rarely ends well for the Pelicans.

Saturday night he faced up on Charlotte’s Nicolas Batum as New Orleans scrambled in transition defense, and Batum passed between Asik’s legs to the cutting Kemba Walker for a bucket. That’s not going on the Asik highlight reel.

The Pelicans got the last laugh with a 121-116 win behind 38 points and 16 rebounds from Anthony Davis.
