Pelicans rely on Anthony Davis' career-high 43 points to quiet Jazz (November 23, 2014)
Associated Press [ Source: ESPN ]

SALT LAKE CITY -- Anthony Davis wanted to come out strong to help the New Orleans Pelicans end their road swing with a win. He got off to a fast start and kept it going.

Davis had a career-high 43 points and 14 rebounds, Jrue Holiday added 19 points and eight assists, and the Pelicans beat the Utah Jazz 106-94 on Saturday night. Davis shot 16 for 23 from the field to help the Pelicans earn a split of their four-game western road trip.

"All of our guards did a great job of finding me and making sure I got the ball in my sweet spot," Davis said. "Then it was my job to knock them down. It was a testament to my team. They know I try to get going early, so they give me the ball -- knowing they're going to have a lot of shots during the course of the game."

Tim Duncan has never stopped playing at that level.

Tony Parker had 22 points and Duncan nearly had a triple double in limited minutes and San Antonio never trailed in 99-87 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night.

Cousins lifts sluggish Kings over Wolves, 113-101 (November 23, 2014)
Associated Press [ Source: ESPN ]

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Sacramento Kings were facing an opponent missing four starters and playing on the second night of a back-to-back -- a scenario that scared the daylights out of coach Mike Malone.

His young Kings are just getting the taste of success, and the coach worried about a let-down. DeMarcus Cousins wouldn't allow that to happen.

Cousins had 31 points and 18 rebounds to power the Sacramento Kings to a 113-101 victory over the short-handed Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night.

HOUSTON -- James Harden scored 32 points, including five down the stretch, to help the Houston Rockets rally for a 95-92 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night.

Houston, playing without Dwight Howard (knee injury), ended its two-game skid and snapped the Mavericks' six-game winning streak.

Dallas led by four with less than a minute remaining before Harden made two free throws. Monta Ellis missed on the other end and Harden put Houston on top 93-92 when he made a jump shot and the ensuing free throw with 28 seconds left.

NEW YORK -- Even with a winless team coming to Madison Square Garden, there was no chance of the New York Knicks being overconfident.

"For us, right now, it's not like we were playing great," point guard Jose Calderon said.

They were good enough to beat Philadelphia.

Raptors overcome 18-point deficit to hand Cavaliers 4th straight loss (November 23, 2014)
Associated Press [ Source: ESPN ]

CLEVELAND -- LeBron James has a blunt assessment for where the Cavaliers stand after 12 games.

"We're a very fragile team right now, we were a fragile team from the beginning," James said after Cleveland squandered an early 18-point lead and lost 110-93 to the Toronto Raptors on Saturday for its fourth straight loss. "Any little adversity hits us, we just shell up."

The Cavaliers, considered the league's best team when the season began, have been hit with plenty of adversity. Cleveland is 5-7 and there is already talk of the team playing in the dark and the players having bad body language. The Cavaliers have a day off to think about their issues before hosting Orlando on Monday.

Bosh, Chalmers lift Heat over Magic 99-92 (November 23, 2014)
Associated Press [ Source: ESPN ]

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Orlando Magic acknowledged they had no answer for Chris Bosh on Saturday night, and it cost them in a 99-92 loss to the Miami Heat.

Bosh scored 14 of his season-high 32 points in the fourth quarter and the Heat (7-6) beat their intrastate rivals for the 10th straight time.

"I'm not really used to guarding players like him," said Magic center Nik Vucevic. "Usually I'm around the paint, trying to help, but with him you can't do that. With Bosh, you have to be really close, and if you help he gets those open shots. He got it going with some open shots and at the end he was unstoppable."

HOUSTON -- There is no timetable for Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard's return after he underwent platelet-rich plasma therapy to treat his strained right knee, coach Kevin McHale said before Saturday night's 95-92 win against the Dallas Mavericks.

It was the second consecutive game missed by Howard, who warmed up before Wednesday's loss to the Los Angeles Lakers before it was determined minutes before tip-off that he could not play.

Howard underwent the PRP therapy, a cutting-edge technique that Kobe Bryant used in 2013, on Thursday.
