Pelicans rally after Cousins ejection, beat Thunder 114-107

When DeMarcus Cousins got tossed, Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday and the rest of the New Orleans Pelicans locked in.

Davis had 36 points and 15 rebounds, Holiday added 18 points, and New Orleans rallied after Cousins' ejection to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 114-107 on Monday night.
