The Pelicans also took advantage of the Knicks on Sunday when they won, 103-99. It's a pretty shallow victory though, because New Orleans is going to be playing with Anthony Davis for the next few games. The forward broke his left hand (it's specifically a non-displaced fracture) against New York in the first half. There isn't a timetable set for his return.
It's unfortunate because Davis has really been making his presence known this season. He was averaging 19.6 points, 10.6 rebounds, and an NBA-leading 3.9 blocks per game. The Pelicans will be aching to have this type of production back in its lineup.
