Gordon scores 21, Pelicans beat Bucks 102-98
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Anthony Davis had a night to forget in the last game before heading home to New Orleans for his All-Star debut.
The Pelicans pulled out the win by bailing out their imposing big man.
Davis might be in the spotlight when the All-Star Game tips off Sunday in front of his hometown crowd. In Milwaukee, he spent much of the night on the bench.
“It’s tough when your main player is in foul trouble. When I came in, I just tried to do anything I could to help the team and I got some good looks and put the ball back in,” Ajinca said.
Davis ended up playing the fourth quarter with four fouls, providing enough of a presence on both ends of the floor to allow his teammates to go strong to the hoop.
Still, the 6-foot-10 Davis, who came into the night averaging 20.7 points and 10.3 rebounds - finished with just 12 points and one rebound, on the offensive end.
“That’s not his normal output and we all know that,” coach Monty Williams said. “He’s carried us most of the season so if we can win with him having an off night, we’ll take it.”
Brandon Knight had 22 points, nine assists and no turnovers to lead the Bucks, limited to nine players because of a litany of injuries.
After Brian Roberts missed a layup, Milwaukee had one last chance, but got tied up in the backcourt and turned the ball over with 9 seconds left.
Ilyasova thought he might have been fouled in a scramble during that possession.
“Yeah I got hit on the arm, I didn’t receive the call,” he said. “It shouldn’t have gotten to that point.”
Certainly not with Davis on the bench for long stretches.
