Davis leads Pelicans past reeling Clippers, 102-98

first_imgMOST READ We are young “Given my minute restriction and stuff like that, we had to think long-term,” Paul said. “All in all, I think we’re going to be OK. … At the end of the day, we want to be healthy at the right time.”Marreese Speights, whose 11 points included a vicious driving dunk over Tyreke Evans, had a chance in the final seconds to tie the game with a straightaway 3-point attempt. It rimmed out and Davis tipped the ball to Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday.Austin Rivers scored 22 points for Los Angeles, including a late 3 to tighten the finish, and DeAndre Jordan had 25 rebounds to go with 13 points.Despite playing center instead of power forward, where he’s played much of the season, Davis didn’t have his usual double-digit rebound totals. But he had two blocks and three steals, none more important than when he tipped Jordan’s outlet pass to himself near the Clippers’ basket and immediately converted a short one-handed floater to make it 101-93 with 1:41 left.“Our season is in jeopardy throughout this stretch,” Davis said. “We just want to come out and win knowing that our goal is the make the playoffs and we’re trying to do whatever we have to.”ADVERTISEMENT Taiwan minister boards cruise ship turned away by Japan PLAY LIST 01:31Taiwan minister boards cruise ship turned away by Japan01:33WHO: ‘Global stocks of masks and respirators are now insufficient’01:01WHO: now 31,211 virus cases in China 102:02Vitamin C prevents but doesn’t cure diseases like coronavirus—medic03:07’HINDI PANG-SPORTS LANG!’03:03SILIP SA INTEL FUND Davis highlighted a 20-point performance with a soaring, one-handed alley-oop dunk during a pivotal fourth-quarter spurt, added a critical steal in the final minutes, and the suddenly surging Pelicans beat Los Angeles 102-98 on Wednesday night.“We’re just maturing as a team,” said Davis, whose team has won three straight and four of five. “We’re trusting each other.
