Nerlens Noel was pleased with his first game action since facing the Boston Celtics on March 20.

"It felt good," the 76ers center said of his performance in Tuesday's 107-93 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans at Wells Fargo Center. "I just got a little wind under me and a little feel back. I will be alright the next game without restrictions."

Noel was on a 20-minute restriction after missing the past six games with a bruised right knee.  He came off the bench this night and finished with four points, six rebounds, two turnovers and a block in 17 minutes, 33 seconds.

He made 2 of 5 shoots. His first basket came on a layup with 3:24 remaining in the first quarter.  The 21-year-old later scored on a dunk with 37.9 seconds left in the third.

Noel is averaging 11 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.5 blocks this season.
