Last week against the Phoenix Suns, New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday didn't shoot well and struggled to limit Eric Bledsoe from penetrating the lane for repeated layups. While Bledsoe scored 25 points on 10-of-12 shooting, Holiday missed seven-of-eight shots and was held to a season-low three points in the Pelicans' 104-98 loss last Tuesday at the New Orleans Arena. The rematch game is Sunday night at the US Airways Center and Holiday is aiming to have a better overall performance. ```We’ll make our adjustments and pretty much stick to the game plan,'' Holiday said during the Pelicans' shootaround Sunday. ``We obviously know what will try to do and adjust to that.'' The Suns (4-2) have emerged as one of the surprise teams in the Western Conference after finishing 25-57 last season. Bledsoe, who was acquired in a three-team trade this summer from the Los Angeles Clippers, leads the Suns with a 20-point average. He's been particularly effective in the fourth quarter, averaging a team-high 11.3 points. Bledsoe made all three shots for 10 points in the fourth quarter against the Pelicans.
