Davis returns, Pelicans edge Jazz 119-111

By BRETT MARTELAP Sports Writer

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Anthony Davis returned from a chest injury and scored 31 points, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat the reeling Utah Jazz, 119-111 on Tuesday night.

Davis, who sat out most of Friday night's victory over Cleveland and all of Sunday night's loss to Golden State, played with a protective vest that did not appear to inhibit him. He had nine rebounds and three blocks, with all three rejections coming in the pivotal final four minutes.

Ryan Anderson hit six 3-pointers and finished with 28 points for New Orleans, while Tyreke Evans added 19 points, scoring nine during New Orleans' 41-point fourth quarter.

Enes Kanter scored 29 points for Utah, which has lost three straight and 12 of 13. Gordon Hayward scored 17 for the Jazz, which lost despite scoring 68 points in the paint.
