Davis leads Pelicans past Celtics 108-89

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Anthony Davis picked up his dribble along the baseline and pulled up for a tough, 14-foot fallaway as he was fouled by Celtics rookie Abdel Nader.

As the shot fell through to cap another big night for the Pelicans' All-Star, the crowd rose to its feet and Davis exchanged high-fives with fans along the sideline before making his foul shot. It seemed a fitting punctuation to the type of performance New Orleans will continue to need to survive a tight Western Conference playoff race.

Davis had 34 points and 11 rebounds, and New Orleans beat banged-up Boston 108-89 on Sunday night.
