National Basketball Association roundup: Pelicans win in OT after Knicks collapse

Davis-Anthony-USNews-Getty-FTR Davis leads Pelicans past Knicks with 48 points
Shannon Reynolds | 15 January, 2018, 09:22

Porzingis finished with 25 points, Tim Hardaway Jr. added 25 points, and Enes Kanter collected 10 rebounds. Davis dropped 48 points, grabbed 17 rebounds, recorded four steals, and registered three blocks.

The Pelicans trailed, 96-77, with 1:22 left in the third quarter, but stormed back behind Davis to stun the fading Knicks.

"I think it was after my third year, after we got swept by Golden State [that I became comfortable]", Davis said.

The Pelicans had a chance to win it in the final seconds of regulation when E'Twaun Moore stole a pass from Jarrett Jack but Moore watched his three-point attempt clank off the rim.

The New York Knicks could use a win here after losing six of their last seven games. Hardaway's jumper gave NY a 96-77 lead with 1:22 remaining in the period, but New Orleans then went on a 17-4 run to cut it 100-94 midway through the fourth.

Jrue Holiday added 31 points, and DeMarcus Cousins had 15 points, 16 rebounds, seven steals and five assists.

A shot-clock violation by the Knicks gave New Orleans another chance with nine seconds remaining, however Davis tied it inside with 3.5 ticks on the clock to force overtime for the second straight home game.

Five days after a double-overtime loss to Chicago in a game they led by 11, the Knicks coughed up another big lead in a miserable way to finish a rare January home game before they begin a seven-game, coast-to-coast trip Monday in Brooklyn that has them away for two weeks.

Just after the buzzer sounded to end the third quarter, with his team trailing the Knicks by 14, the Pelicans star heaved a full-court shot that swished through the net.

"Someone said that he plays well here and I hope that continues", Gentry said after Davis' third straight game with at least 35 points at Madison Square Garden. However, New Orleans battled back in the contest with a dominating fourth frame where it outscored the Knicks 27-13. PG Jameer Nelson missed the game for personal reasons.

Before the game, the Knicks signed guard Trey Burke, a former lottery pick who had been playing with their G League team. Davis knocked down a 3-pointer as time expired in the second quarter, trimming the Knicks' lead to 57-48 at halftime. The Pelicans signed guard Mike James, who played for Phoenix earlier this season, to a two-way contract.

Jack finished with 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting.

"I thought the guys really stepped it up in the second half", Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said. "I kind of wanted to start over".

Pelicans: At Boston on Tuesday night.
