NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Anthony Davis scored 23 of his 29 points in the second half, including two free throws with 9 seconds left, and the New Orleans Pelicans moved into eighth place in the Western Conference with a 103-100 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night.
Stephen Curry scored 25 points, hitting five 3-pointers, but his final attempt that would have tied the game went in and out.
That allowed the Pelicans to move back into the West’s last playoff spot by a half-game over Oklahoma City, which lost to San Antonio.
Quincy Pondexter had 20 points for New Orleans, including his fourth 3 of the game to tie it at 95.
Draymond Green had 24 points for Golden State and Andrew Bogut blocked nine shots.
