Anthony Davis to remain in Pelicans lineup for now

Anthony Davis to remain in Pelicans lineup for now

Even with superstar Anthony Davis resting for the game, New Orleans had no trouble filling the bucket against the Lakers, scorching its way to a 128-115 win.

LeBron James paced the Lakers with 27 points, 12 assists, seven rebounds and four steals, while Brandon Ingram overcame early foul trouble to lead all scorers with 29.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Pelicans All-Star Anthony Davis will rest against the Lakers. Now the summer represents the next time that New Orleans can ship Davis out of town after he made it clear that he won't sign a contract extension with the franchise. The Pelicans, who failed to reach agreement with those teams interested in signing the star forward before the deadline of February 7, plan to reduce his time on the court.

With Anthony Davis sitting out, Saturday looked like it could be the beginning of a nice winning streak for the Lakers. He has averaged only 24.7 minutes per game in those four games, which is almost 12 minutes fewer than his season average.

"We had no sense of urgency", Kuzma said.

Aubrianne Moore, 28, and her three young daughters Alaina, 2, Cassidy, 6, and Kyrie, 8, died of gunshot wounds, WOOD-TV reports. She said investigators aren't searching for a suspect, and the sheriff's office tweeted there is no threat to community safety.

"I think it was just conscious effort", Pelicans forward Juilus Randle said.

Pelicans center Jahlil Okafor, who was the only player to speak with reporters after practice, insisted that he and his teammates were not bothered by Davis' continued presence in the lineup. "If we were playing the Baltimore Claws we would sit him out that game too, OK?"

Gentry also said he retains "a ton of respect" for Demps. "But as far as playing him, to me, it's just another great game by him and you just try to do the best you can when he's out there".

"While we still have many more critical decisions to make when this season comes to an end, I am focused on making sure we are properly positioned to succeed and that we are headed in the right direction". "So we have to start buying into the scouting report and start buying into each other and start to play for each other a lot more".
