Davis powers Pelicans past Magic, 100-92

Updated:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Anthony Davis had 22 points, a career-high 19 rebounds and seven blocked shots, and the New Orleans Pelicans won their second straight game, 100-92 over the Orlando Magic on Sunday night.

Davis' statistical line marked the first time since the franchise was founded as the Hornets in Charlotte in 1988 that a player on the club had that many points, rebounds and blocks in the same game.

Tyreke Evans scored 13 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter to keep struggling Orlando at bay.

Led by Arron Afflalo's 25 points, the Magic twice got as close as three points late in the fourth quarter.

Brian Roberts had 15 points and Eric Gordon 14 for the Pelicans.

Victor Oladipo 18 points and five steals for Orlando, while Tobias Harris added 17 points and nine rebounds.
