NEW ORLEANS (AP) If not for Anthony Davis' determination to dominate inside for most of his 40 minutes on the court, the New Orleans Pelicans could have been blown out by the New York Knicks.
Davis scored a season-high 43 points and grabbed 17 rebounds, and New Orleans overcame an 11-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat New York 129-124 on Friday night.
"It felt like a grind," Davis said. "Usually when I have those numbers, we're up 12, 15, 20. ... But they were up damn near the whole game. We just had to fight back and I was just trying to do my part."
