Notebook: Pelicans 88, Bulls 79


Scott Kushner, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Feb 01, 2014 11:54 PM - Updated Sat Feb 01, 2014 11:54 PM

THE FACT: Anthony Davis became the first player to record at least 22 points and six blocked shots in three consecutive games since Knicks' center Patrick Ewing accomplished the feat in 1990.

THE LEAD: Facing one of the toughest defensive matchups the NBA has to offer, Davis set out to prove his skill set is as versatile as it is overwhelming.

The second-year forward soared, scored and swatted his New Orleans Pelicans to a 88-79 victory over All-Star center Joakim Noah and the rest of the Chicago Bulls (23-23) in front of a sellout crowd of 17,799 on Saturday night in the New Orleans Arena.

Davis, who was notably left off of the All-Star team when selections were announced on Thursday, provided emphatic evidence why he belonged in the conversation to begin with. Despite persistently physical defense by Taj Gibson and Noah, Davis scored a game-high 24 points in remarkably efficient fashion, converting 10-for-14 field-goal attempts.

His most indelible impact may have been defensively, though, by shutting the Bulls out of the lane. Davis piled up six blocks and pulled down eight rebounds while consistently changing Chicago's interior offense alongside Pelicans' centers Greg Stiemsa and Alexis Ajicia.

New Orleans (20-26) led throughout the final three quarters, overshadowing Bulls' point guard D.J. Augustin, who recorded a season-high 23 points in a return to his hometown.

QUOTABLE: "His length and shot blocking are just unbelievable to try to deal with down there. He can also shoot the ball, and I really didn't know he could shoot that well. He played like an All-Star and I think he's definitely an All-Star. He's just a great player."
-- Augustin, on Davis' performance

THE STAT: Despite shooting 23 more free throws than the Pelicans, Chicago couldn't cut its lingering deficit to single-digits until the game's final minute. New Orleans converted eight of its 10 free throws, while Chicago knocked down 22-for-33 from the stripe. However, the Pelicans rendered the disparity meaningless by making 11 more field goals and shooting nine percentage points better than the Bulls.

TURNING POINT: Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau referenced the Pelicans' quick start in the second quarter, as an early deficit that put Chicago on its heels. New Orleans expanded its 23-21 lead at the end of the first quarter to a 37-24 advantage over the opening six minutes of the period. Reserves Austin Rivers, Jeff Withey, Anthony Morrow and Tyreke Evans all connected from the field against a sluggish Bulls' bench.

NOT: Chicago converted just eight of its first 23 shots (34 percent) over the game's first 18 minutes, which was dragged down by a bench which combined for one point during that span. It allowed New Orleans - shooting 20 percentage points better than the favored Bulls - to open up a 37-24 lead midway through the second quarter.

GOOD MOVE: Under Thibodeau's leadership, the Bulls have created a reputation for toughness under the basket, led by Noah. However, it was New Orleans that controlled the paint for most of Saturday night, racing out to a 44-18 scoring advantage there through the first three quarters. The Pelicans' focus on the Bulls' core flustered Chicago, particularly when they piled up eight blocks and held Carlos Boozer to just four points. They finished with a 50-34 edge in the paint, holding the Bulls to just 50 percent (17-for-34) shooting in the lane.

QUOTABLE II: "We could feel we were starting to frustrate them. The Bulls are a top notch and top coached team. They beat teams by being physical. It's what they do. We were able to match that, especially as a young team, they didn't expect that from us. I think it flustered them a little bit. But we knew they would respond, because we've lost a lot of second half leads. So, we made it a point to come out at halftime and not let up, because that can change quickly."
-- Rivers on the key to New Orleans' dominance in the post

NOTABLE: It was unknown whether Davis would be available prior to the game, due a dislocated finger that forced him to miss the Pelicans' loss at Minnesota on Wednesday night...Pelicans guard Eric Gordon raced out on a quick start scoring seven of the game's first eight points. He finished with nine points on 15 shots...Boozer's four points tied his lowest scoring output of the season, matching his previous low notched in his last outing against the Pelicans. It snapped a string of 12 consecutive games with double-digit points...New Orleans swept the season series against Chicago, winning both games against the Bulls for the first time since the 2007-08 season.

UP NEXT: For the Pelicans, Monday vs. San Antonio, Wednesday vs. Atlanta, Friday vs. Minnesota. For the Bulls, Monday @ Sacramento, Tuesday @ Phoenix, Thursday @ Golden State.
