Anthony Davis gets another chance to excel against his hometown team

(WVUE) - Anthony Davis grew up in Chicago but has only had the opportunity to face the Bulls eight times in his six seasons in the NBA. That's tied for the second-least of any opponent he has gone against.

And yet, he has put on a show every time against the Bulls. In those eight games, he averages 23.9 points, 11 rebounds and 3.1 blocks - each is above his career averages. Unfortunately for AD, he has won just two meetings, including earlier this season.

Davis will look for his third career win as the Pelicans look to improve their 24-21 record against the 18-28 Bulls Monday at 7 p.m.
