New Orleans Pelicans Beat Knicks Despite Davis’ Broken Hand
NEW YORK (AP) — Ryan Anderson made seven 3-pointers and scored 31 points, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame the loss of Anthony Davis to a broken left hand to beat the New York Knicks 103-99 on Sunday night.
Tyreke Evans added 24 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter, as the Pelicans sent the Knicks to their ninth straight loss overall and seventh in a row at home.
Davis had seven points and four rebounds in the first quarter before leaving with what the Pelicans said was a non-displaced fracture in his left hand. The team said a timetable for his return has not been determined.
Carmelo Anthony finished with 23 points and rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. had 21 for the Knicks.
