Anthony Davis Is The NBA's Most Valuable Player

Davis' monster game carries Pelicans past Clippers

Do we have any indication from the pelicans and how serious the injury is Anthony Davis that forced him out of the game in the second half.

Davis departed with 3:04 left in the half and the Pelicans leading 54-51 after taking a shot in the ribs from Jordan. In short, it was yet another absurd performance for Davis, who carrying the Pelicans with MVP-level production in the absence of DeMarcus Cousins. Davis came down awkwardly on his ankle in the third quarter, and never returned to the lineup. Davis had 41 points as the Pelicans held off the Clippers 121-116.

The Pelicans forward and former Kentucky Wildcat has been on a tear over the last month and was named the Western Conference Player of the Month for the month of February. The Clippers finally caught New Orleans at 104 on a basket by Sindarius Thornwell with 5:23 left.

Holiday scored eight points in a row, including back-to-back three-pointers.

From there, though, Davis emerged for the second half and he was absolutely electric.

But the Pels finally quieted the Kings by making shots when needed as they ended a stretch of 8-of-11 games on the road.

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

Getting hit in the ribs only took Anthony Davis off the court for a short time. He has scored more than 40 points five times during the streak.

"It was a number of things tonight", Lou Williams said. "That is why he is an All-Star player and the leader of our team". Harris added 11 rebounds and Williams had 11 assists. Montrezl Harrell scored 26 points and DeAndre Jordan collected 20 rebounds to go with 10 points.

"We knew that this would be a real hard stretch", Gentry said. "We wish it weren't that way, but he's a guy who's going to do everything to help us win games". Instead of seizing the moment, the Clippers succumbed to it. "So, they've played without me before and won games".

"Nothing seemed to affect him", Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. "We've got to execute, rebound, stay focused on defensive assignments". He came back and proved a one-man wrecking crew against the Los Angeles Clippers. He went 17-of-31 from the field and 4-of-7 from 3-point range.
