Best of NBA: Davis, Cousins power Pelicans past Pacers

Best of NBA: Davis, Cousins power Pelicans past Pacers”

"We're asking a lot of those guys, especially (Davis) and DeMarcus playing those kind of minutes", New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry told reporters. Then Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins took over.

Davis had 37 points and 14 rebounds while going 14 of 18 from the field, and Cousins had 32 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists. "We just trusted our defense and that it would translate to offense". "We can get so much better".

Defensive closeouts - nearly everything defensively about New Orleans screams mediocre, but one reason they can win five straight road games for the first time since January 9-26, 2011, is they are contesting on the perimeter. Tuesday was the second time Davis and Cousins have each finished with at least 30 points and 10 rebounds in the same game this season. New Orleans' lone home win came against the Cavaliers.

Fantasy Impact Davis registered game highs in points, rebounds and minutes as the Pelicans' Twin Towers continue to dominate.

The Cavs have been one of the NBA's biggest surprises this season - for all the wrong reasons.

IN had six players score in double figures in its third straight loss.

Porzingis hits tiebreaking 3, Knicks beat Hornets NEW YORK - No Knicks player has ever started a season like Kristaps Porzingis.

Porzingis scored 28 points, including a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 1:48 remaining, and NY beat the Charlotte Hornets 118-113 on Tuesday night for its third straight victory. You have to be impressed with the Pelicans and their two All-Stars for what they mustered up on every possession in the last few minutes of the game. Pacers guard Victor Oladipo has been stellar early in the season, but the Pelicans made things tough for him in the second half.

Jokic also had 12 rebounds, two steals and two blocks. The over-under is set at 217 points.

The Nets starters couldn't match Jokic's output. Cousins has not, averaging 22.3 points and 10.8 rebounds while recording nine double-doubles in 13 games, including the last three. New Orleans gave up a season-high 75 points in the first half, and in had 10 players with at least two points going into the half. Only three Nets were in double figures.
