Davis, Pelicans Defeat Boston in Overtime Thriller
Green Scores 39 in Loss
The Celtics, after surging back to send Sunday night's game against the Pelicans into overtime, couldn't get over the hump in extra time and they fell 121-120 in New Orleans. Jeff Green tied his season high in scoring with 39 points, but it wasn't enough to counter a career night by Anthony Davis, who notched career highs of 40 points and 21 rebounds.
Kris Humphries' buzzer-beating jumper sent the game into overtime at the end of regulation and he finished with 16 points and a team-high 12 boards. Rajon Rondo had six points, eight rebounds and a game-high 14 assists.
