Player donates $1,000 for every point and assist

Before their game on Friday, March 3, against the San Antonio Spurs, New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday promised to donate $1,000 to New Orleans tornado relief efforts for every point and assist he recorded during the game. At least seven possible tornadoes had ripped off roofs from Baton Rouge to New Orleans. He said he wanted to do something to help.

Holiday almost won the game in regulation, but he missed a 17-foot jumper with 2/10ths of a second left. In overtime, he made two of three shots but missed an 11-foot jump shot with 9.9 seconds remaining. The Pelicans lost to the Spurs 101-98, but Holiday had scored 26 points and had five assists, so he donated $31,000 to tornado relief.
