Pelicans Vs Mavs Scores: Pelicans Register First Win, Lose Anthony Davis Due To Hip Injury

Anthony Davis scored 17 points in the first half as his team New Orleans Pelicans took a convincing 58-40 lead at half time.

Anthony Davis scored 17 points in the first half as his team New Orleans Pelicans took a convincing 58-40 lead at half-time. They went on to secure their first win this season, but Anthony Davis didn’t return in the second half.

Davis left at half-time with a bruised right hip, and the Pelicans notched up their first win of the season by beating Dallas Mavericks 120-105 on Tuesday night. New Orleans started with a 12-0 run.

Team officials clarified that Davis was taken off as a precautionary measure. It was during the time his side was ahead by 18 points, which never dipped after his departure. Dallas fought hard in the third quarter but couldn’t reduce the margin.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry pointed out that Davis’ injury was a posterior or medial thigh sprain.

“Even with Anthony playing, we’ve got some really key guys sitting out,” Gentry described his roster. “You can do one of two things: You can just move on and try to play and do the best you can, or you can sit around and mope and have a pity party. We don’t have time for a pity party.”

Ryan Anderson finished with 25 points and 11 rebounds. Dirk Nowitzki led Dallas with 18 points. Pelicans now improve to 1-6.
