LOS ANGELES (AP) Getting hit in the ribs only took Anthony Davis off the court for a short time. He came back and proved a one-man wrecking crew against the Los Angeles Clippers.
Davis scored 41 points despite a rib contusion and the New Orleans Pelicans won their ninth straight, 121-116 on Tuesday night.
He tied his career high with four 3-pointers and had 13 rebounds.
”My team’s doing a good job getting me open and putting me in a spot to be successful,” Davis said. ”Everybody on the team is playing well.”
He left the game after banging bodies with DeAndre Jordan going for a rebound. Davis grabbed his side before going to the locker room for an X-ray, which was negative. He returned wearing extra padding and exploded for 19 points in the third quarter, capping it with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer.
”Nothing seemed to affect him,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. ”That’s a really kind of a tough injury. It feels like somebody’s sticking an ice pick in your side when you’re trying to breathe with those bruised ribs, but he played through it.”
Gentry added, ”He’s playing on an MVP level.”
