The 20-year-old Davis, who suffered a non-displaced fracture in his left hand on December 1, finished with 31 points, 17 rebounds and one assist.
Davis is averaging 20.1 points, 10.4 boards and 2.9 blocks in 32 games.
Even with Davis’ brilliance, New Orleans (15-24) has lost eight consecutive contests and is sitting in the basement of the Southwest Division.
Taken first overall out of Kentucky in 2012, “Unibrow” appears a bit stronger and more powerful since being hindered by various injuries throughout his rookie campaign.
Consequently, the 6-foot-10, 220-pound Davis now overwhelms defenders and seems unstoppable in the paint.
Quick, explosive and able to expertly run the court, the former Wildcat’s routinely compiling double-doubles and is a commanding force in the association.
Despite their atrocious mark, the Pelicans are a difficult adversary with Davis protecting the basket.
At a minimum, Anthony Davis ensures that visitors to “The Big Easy” will have a difficult time on the hardwood.by
