Final Score: New Orleans 105, Charlotte 84
New Orleans, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - Anthony Davis had the best game of his
young career, filling the stat sheet in the New Orleans Pelicans' 105-84 rout
of the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday.
Davis contributed 25 points, eight rebounds, six blocks, six steals and four
assists in the triumph, the Pelicans' first of the season. Davis shot 9-of-13
from the floor and 7-of-8 from the free throw line.
"I'm just trying to hustle and everything I need to do to help my team win,"
Tyreke Evans chipped in 15 points and seven assists off the bench, while Jrue
Holiday had 14 points and eight helpers.
Kemba Walker was the lone Charlotte starter in double figures with 14 points.
Ramon Sessions paced the Bobcats with 22 points off the bench and Jeff Adrien
had 13 rebounds.
The Pelicans jumped all over the visitors from the opening tip. Walker scored
the first eight Charlotte points as New Orleans went up 22-8 midway through
the opening quarter. It wasn't until the 3:49 mark when Sessions hit a pair of
free throws that a Charlotte player besides Walker registered a point. New
Orleans led 33-15 after the first.
Charlotte won the second period after the Pelicans shot just 8-of-21 from the
floor, but the home team still led by 15 at intermission.
Davis' emphatic dunk early in the third period gave the momentum back to
New Orleans, which managed to keep the lead in double figures for the
remainder of the second half.
"The disappointing part to me was the beginning of the third quarter where we
just came out with nothing," Bobcats head coach Steve Clifford said.
Brian Roberts had 13 points off the bench for New Orleans ... Davis recorded
career-highs in blocks and steals while matching a career-best in assists. The
former No. 1 overall pick became the fifth player in the last 20 seasons with
at least 25 points, five blocks and five steals in a game and the last since
Dwight Howard ... The Pelicans shot 7-for-13 from 3-point range.
