Pels lose 5th straight, Davis exits with injury
While New Orleans parties, the Pelicans continue their post All Star break blues.
The Pelicans lost All Star forward Anthony Davis in the second quarter with a sprained left shoulder, and lost at Dallas 108-89. The Pelicans are now 0-5 post All Star break.
The second quarter was key. Dallas outscored New Orleans 29-16 and Davis left with just over four minutes to play in the quarter after contact under the basket. Head coach Monty Williams said Davis’ injury “could be nothing”.
Davis missed 8 games earlier this season with a non-displaced fracture of his left hand. Monta Ellis had 23 points for Dallas. Eric Gordon scored 19 points for New Orleans.
