AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Anthony Davis had 27 points and 10 rebounds as the New Orleans Pelicans brought the Detroit Pistons back to earth with a 105-94 win Wednesday night.
The Pistons came in having won of nine of 10, but were never competitive with New Orleans, which led by 20 with 3:15 to play.
The Pelicans were missing Jrue Holliday (ankle), but easily picked up their second win in five games. Tyreke Evans added 18 points, nine assists and eight rebounds for the Pelicans, while Ryan Anderson came off the bench to score 17.
Brandon Jennings had 19 for the Pistons, while Greg Monroe had 16 points and eight rebounds and was the only other starter to reach double figures.
