New Orleans Pelicans Fact of the Day for Jan. 1

Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis turned in performances that were among the elite in the entire NBA on Monday vs. Portland.  Jrue Holiday notched 31 points, 13 assists and seven rebounds, it was his first 30-point performance as a Pelican, and no other NBA player has reached those plateaus in a game this season. Additionally, Anthony Davis tallied 27 points and 12 rebounds while rejecting five shots. There have only been three such performances this season in the NBA reaching those plateaus and Anthony Davis is responsible for two of the three (the other being Nov. 8 vs the Lakers).
