(AP) Anthony Davis capped a 41-point performance in his return to New Orleans by intercepting Jrue Holiday's inbound pass with 5 seconds left and making a pair of game-sealing free throws, and the Los Angeles Lakers extended their winning streak to nine games with a 114-110 victory over the Pelicans on Wednesday night.
A packed-in and energetic crowd booed Davis during introductions and virtually every time he handled the ball, only to see him and new teammate LeBron James take over the fourth quarter.
James had 29 points and 11 assists, scoring 15 points in the final period, when Kyle Kuzma also added nine of his 16 points to help the Lakers erase a 10-point deficit.
Holiday had 29 points and 12 assists, and Brandon Ingram had 23 points and 10 rebounds for the Pelicans, who dropped their third straight game.
