This is probably the most significant win for Pelicans this season at this stage of the game. The Pelicans are looking to make the playoffs and they are just 6 games behind Utah who is on the 8th spot. It will be hard because their roster is quite debunked right now. The starting line up was Davis, Ajinca, Cunningham, Gee and Cole.
Who would have thought that they could beat this OKC team with this roster, Well Ad is the first guy who would say anything is possible. AD led his team with 30 pts 6 rebounds and 4 block shots. Anderson was the side kick and added 26 pts, while Holiday made some clutch plays in the end to help seal the win and put up 22 points out of 8-12 shooting. The Pelicans bench were huge and everyone stepped up.
OKC’s Big three of Durant, Westbrook and Ibaka put up 91 points total (Durant 32, WB 44, Ibaka 15) but the rest of them team were almost a non factor.
Davis has also stroke it from 3 shooting 2-3 which is not bad at all. He is showing he can do everything and has really taken his team on his shoulders.
Here is the replay of the game:
