SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Anthony Davis had the game-winning basket, finished with 27 points and 11 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans held on for a 100-99 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night.
San Antonio went on a 15-4 run with Tony Parker and Tim Duncan on the bench to take a 99-98 lead. Danny Green capped the run with three free throws with 12 seconds remaining after he was fouled by Eric Gordon on a wild 3-point attempt as the shot clock was about to expire.
Davis then drove past Aron Baynes for a layup with 6.6 seconds left to seal the win. Kawhi Leonard missed a pair of shots in the final seconds, snapping the Spurs’ five-game winning streak over the Pelicans.
Tyreke Evans had 18 points, including buzzer-beating shots in the second and third quarters, and Jrue Holiday had 15 points and 11 assists.
