Pelicans star Davis suffers shoulder injury

Pelicans star Davis suffers shoulder injury

Paul and Anthony Davis Sr., the forward's father, were reportedly in attendance for Thursday night's game, seen sitting courtside across from the Pelicans bench.

Be professional. That's all Jrue Holiday said the Pelicans needed to do and that's all they did in an impressive 131-122 victory over a rolling Oklahoma City Thunder as the National Basketball Association closed out its pre-All-Star Weekend slate on Thursday.

Davis was in the starting lineup and played 16 minutes during the first half. "Because to tell you the truth, this whole thing has been a dumpster fire". "It's hard for guys to go through what they've been through, and to be able to come out and beat a team of that quality, I'm happy for all the guys".

After the game, Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry wasn't interested in discussing Davis.

He responded with, "Hey guys, I'm going to talk about the guys that played. They did a great job", Gentry said.

Gentry then stormed off, ending his postgame interview session in uncharacteristically abrupt fashion.

Pelicans forward/center Julius Randle helped fill the void left by Davis' absence, finishing with 33 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists. New Orleans rebounded and held on from there. Not a lot of guys do.

The 25-year-old forward appeared to suffer the injury on the last play of the second quarter.

E'Twaun Moore scored 15 points and Jahlil Okafor had 12 as New Orleans bounced back from having its lowest point totals of the season in its two most recent games - a 99-90 loss at Memphis on Saturday and a 118-88 home loss to Orlando on Tuesday. He left before the game was over to get an MRI exam and the Pelicans hope to have more information Friday.

Holiday was part of a team-wide containment effort that checked Kia MVP candidate Paul George, who struggled through a 28-point performance, shooting just 11-of-29 (3-17 3FGs) and committing three turnovers.

Thunder: Noel had 22 points and 13 rebounds.

Westbrook is 72nd on the all-time NBA/ABA scoring list.

Westbrook had nine points and two assists as Oklahoma City cut the deficit to 101-89 at the end of the third quarter.

The Pelicans led for most of the game and by as many as 17 on Randle's free throws with five minutes left in the third quarter. He returned in the second quarter. Jahlil Okafor scored 12 points.

So it was easy for the Thunder to move on to this weekend's All-Star break.

Payton is now the all-time leader with 18,207 career points as Westbrook is just four points from tying Payton with 18,203 and five points from becoming the leader, according to Basketball-Reference. "So that's insane, man", Westbrook said.
