Recap:

  • If not for James Harden going for 30+ points in 17 straight games, everyone would be talking about how dominant Anthony Davis has been lately for the Pelicans. Last night, Davis took over yet again, finishing with 46 points, 16 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals. The Brow was 12 for 12 from the free throw line, including four of them in the final 13 seconds to help seal the victory. Starting alongside Davis, Julius Randle had a big night of his own, putting up 27 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists. The two of them have benefitted so much from playing with the other, if the Pelicans had some stronger guard and bench play, they could contend for a top spot in the Western Conference. Darius Miller played nearly 30 minutes tonight off the bench for the Pels, scoring 6 points and channeling his inner Anthony Davis with 4 blocks.

  • The win for New Orleans came at the cost of a poor night for Clippers’ guard Shai Gilegous-Alexander. SGA was held scoreless and played a career-low 13 minutes. Patrick Beverly has all but taken over the main guard spot from SGA as far as minutes played goes, but SGA remains in the starting lineup for now. The “rookie wall” is very real and Gilgeous-Alexander may very well be hitting it as of late.
