Pelicans-Pistons: Anthony Davis avoided injury when he jumped into the seats after a loose ball against the Pistons last night, which was good news for the Pelicans since he scored 32 points in a 115-99 victory.
Tyreke Evans posted 22 points and 10 assists here, and New Orleans was up 72-53 at halftime. The team has won four of five and is starting to look like they’re finding their rhythm.
