Pelicans' Jrue Holiday collects career-high 17 assists in win on Tuesday

Pelicans' Jrue Holiday collects career-high 17 assists in win on Tuesday

Pelicans: New Orleans has won seven straight road games, one shy of the franchise record set in 2007-08.

After he led the New Orleans Pelicans to a 121-116 win with a game-high 41 points, 13 rebounds, three blocks and three steals, Davis revealed a amusing exchange he had with DeMarcus Cousins at halftime.

Davis is third in the National Basketball Association in win shares (10.5) but is getting it done on both ends. Both players averaged over 25 points and 10 rebounds apiece and were named as starters for the 2018 All-Star Game, putting to rest any concerns that their dominance on the interior would overlap. Davis tallied 19 points in the quarter.

Outside of Houston and Golden State, spots 3 through 10 in the West are only separated by 4.5 games so every win by the Pelicans is crucial.

A successful playoff run could give Davis plenty of reason to stay and given New Orleans plenty of enticement to keep this core of players together and build for their bright future.

Down by three with 8.9 seconds to play, the Nets inbounded after a timeout and the Clippers had explicit instructions — foul whoever gets the ball. Ultimately, it was ruled a rib contusion and Davis returned to the floor to start the second half.

The Clippers, however, stormed all the way back in the fourth quarter.

New Orleans didn't shoot many free throws (nine) and didn't need to in piling up points.

The Clippers were reeling, on the verge of losing to a Brooklyn team that hadn't won a road game since January 21. "We didn't play with the right spirit, and it happens, but I don't know why it happened". "Everybody on the team is playing well".

Paul had 16 points and 11 assists for Houston. In short, it was yet another absurd performance for Davis, who carrying the Pelicans with MVP-level production in the absence of DeMarcus Cousins.

"It was sore", Davis said in a postgame interview on TNT. The Pelicans are going to have to continue playing with grit and determination to win this game. The Clippers fell back into ninth after falling to the fourth-place Pelicans (37-26).

"We find ways to win", Harden said.

The end of the first half offered a glimpse of what was still to come. "Then, defensively, because of our offense, we got frustrated and played poorly". X-rays on the ankle were negative. Jrue Holiday also was instrumental in this Pelicans win, adding a 19 point 17 assist night to the victory.

Anthony Davis did not return after turning his ankle on Wednesday night.

Los Angeles trailed 97-82 entering the final stanza but opened the period with a 17-5 spurt to pull within 102-99 on Harrell's basket with 7:15 remaining.

The teams traded the lead before Harrell completed a three-point play and Williams added a layup on the next trip for a 113-109 lead with 2:05 to go.

However, Davis has been a machine since the injury.

"He's a superstar", Williams said of Davis.
