NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Boston was without the services of Kyrie Irving, Al Horford, Gordon Hayward, and Aron Baynes. But the Pelicans (14-15) still couldn’t capitalize on the Celtics injury misfortunes, losing on the road, 113-100. New Orleans was on the tail end of playing on back-to-back nights.

Anthony Davis dropped in a game-high 41 points in the contest. The Pels bench didn’t hold up their end of the deal, getting outscored, 41-21.

Jrue Holiday also struggled on the night scoring only seven points on 3-of-10 shooting.

The Pelicans return home to play Wednesday night against the Thunder.
