Anthony Davis Returns with a Career-High

After playing sparingly Wednesday night, Anthony Davis returned to the Pelicans’ starting lineup last night.  The All-Star starter did not disappoint.

Davis had 16 points and a career-high 22 rebounds to lead the Pelicans to a 119-103 win over the Spurs.  Davis became the first person in the NBA this season with 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 100 blocks.

He racked up a ton of rebounds, but Davis couldn’t outscore Terrence Jones.  On a tear since replacing AD in the starting lineup, Jones had 21 points (8-14, 1-2 3FG) and 7 rebounds in only 24 minutes of action.

The box scores of the other Cats in the NBA will surprise you.  In his first game after the Instagram fiasco, Rondo not only played, he played better than anyone on the team.

    Lol I was so confused about how he could get 16 points and 22 points

      Neither of which remotely approaches a career- high for Davis.

    I love it when I use the wrong word in a bolded sentence. Doh!
