Davis came off with an injured ankle.
"Nothing seemed to affect him", Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said.
Davis landed badly on his ankle after stepping on Kings center Kosta Koufos. He's averaging 24.9 points, 8.5 assists and 4.6 rebounds during the Pels' winning streak and he's been a steady presence for the Pelicans that can be dependable when Davis isn't dominating games.
He also appeared to be getting fitted for a walking boot after the game, but he also said he feels fine when he talked about the play which caused the injury. "They said I was fine, and I went back out". "Any time you twist an ankle it hurts, especially coming off somebody's foot because you really don't have any protection". "I got hit in the ribs but knowing the position we're in, I just wanted to get back out there and do what I can to help the team".
Get that out of here: Davis picked up his ninth game this season with at least five blocks. Jrue Holiday made a significant impact, posting 19 points and a game-high 17 assists. After the game, Davis said it was no big deal, but the team did plan on getting an MRI Thursday. Montrezl Harrell scored 26 points and DeAndre Jordan collected 20 rebounds to go with 10 points. The ten-game win streak matches a franchise record set back in the 2010-11 season.More news: 67 killed in PNG quake
Mirotic made 10 of 12 shots and is shooting 56.3 percent over his last four games. I'm pretty confident that he'll stay. I know what I felt and then came and got it checked out. When he does play, he's a player the Kings can count on for offense, but there is still a struggle to find a go-to player to break runs. Our men now unfortunately though we're dealing with a another injury to another key player again that's where I was going next great that you won ten in a row apply its. "We've done a good job with that".
