In 20 games to date, Davis has averaged 25.6 points, 11.0 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.2 steals while shooting 57 percent from the field and 35.9 percent from three. The first foul came after he argued a no-call after missing a layup, and the second came when Davis was called for a foul on Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns.

Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau chimed on what he felt went on in the sequence where Davis was ejected, per ESPN. "You can probably call a foul on any play when those guys are matched up against each other". Questionable calls are part of sports, and he well knows that. The play went on for almost 20 seconds as Davis laid on the floor, clutching the left side of his midsection/upper thigh. The outcome of their game nearly seems secondary now, knowing that losing Davis for an extended period of time would be much more devastating to New Orleans than a single loss on the road.
