Davis (48 points, 17 rebounds), Pelicans beat Knicks in OT

Anthony Davis' fullcourt heave after the third quarter was too late to give him points, though it gave him that unstoppable feeling great players get.

"I kind of saw it, but I mean you never really make those," Davis said of the shot he launched from just inside the opposite baseline . "So when it in I just kind of felt like tonight was definitely my night."

And thanks to his monster effort, it became the Pelicans', too.

Davis scored a season-high 48 points and grabbed 17 rebounds, leading New Orleans back from 19 points down late in the third quarter to a 123-118 overtime victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday.
