Davis lifts Pelicans past Lakers 96-85

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Anthony Davis scored a career-high 32 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and tied a career best with six blocks, leading the New Orleans Pelicans over the Los Angeles Lakers 96-85 on Friday night.

Jrue Holiday had 13 points and 13 assists and Eric Gordon scored 16 for the Pelicans, who led most of the way in their second straight win.

New Orleans broke open a tight contest with a 12-0 run in the final 3:16 that started with Davis' 16-foot jumper and included his fast-break two-handed jam, his block of Pau Gasol and his fast-break layup as he was fouled, the last of which had the crowd on its feet chanting "M-V-P!"

Chris Kaman led Los Angeles with 16 points, while Nick Young and Steve Blake each scored 13. The Lakers, who had won a night earlier in Houston, rested guard Steve Nash.
