Despite the end of the NBA regular season being just a week away, the Western Conference still has seven teams working towards any of the last five playoff slots. Only two games separate the 4-seed and being completely out of the playoffs in the West, so nearly every game is a must win. The New Orleans Pelicans are trying to cling to their playoff spot, as they sit in 8th place and only one game up on the 9th place team.

Last night, the Pelicans picked up a big win and it was powered by Anthony Davis. The Brow finished with 28 points on 8 of 13 shooting, to go along with 12 rebounds, 3 blocks, and 2 steals. New Orleans knocked off the Grizzlies by the score of 123-95. Check out his highlights below:
