Pelicans' Davis showing no signs of letting up

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -
If there were any concerns about Anthony Davis returning too soon from a groin injury Monday night against the Hawks, he squashed them with one play.

"That was a signature play for us," head Coach Monty Williams said of Davis' monstrous put-back slam in the second quarter. "He worked to get the ball and he finished it and it kind of gave us some juice."

Davis was healthy and magnificent once again. He finished with 29 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and two blocks en route to stopping Atlanta's 19-game win streak. But he admitted, with his adrenaline so high for the victory, he could not escape some soreness on Tuesday.

"It's a playoff game, it's an intense game," Davis said. "So it's a fun game to play and when you are out there leaving it all out on the floor. That's how you are going to feel the next day."

Speaking of the playoffs, with each win the Pelicans have inched closer to grabbing the eighth spot. They're one game back of the Phoenix Suns, though looking at the standings is not something Davis is in the business of doing.

"We just continue to do what we've done for the last seven games: playing together, sharing the ball, playing defense and the record will take care of itself," he said.
