LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Anthony Davis scored 16 points and blocked Bradley Beal's game-tying drive attempt with 11.9 seconds left to help the New Orleans Pelicans remain unbeaten with a 93-89 exhibition victory over the Washington Wizards on Saturday night.
Playing before 14,980 happy to welcome the Kentucky product back to Rupp Arena, Davis contributed a couple of key fourth-quarter baskets that helped the Pelicans (6-0) rally from a 72-66 deficit. He finished with four rebounds and two blocks.
Beal scored 13 of his 30 points in the third period for the Wizards (1-4) and was hoping to force overtime when Davis denied his attempted layup. John Wall, another former Wildcat, added 16 points and Al Harrington 13 for Washington.
Carmelo Anthony hopes that he's consulted about the New York Knicks' new coach and if he is, he wants one that will hold players accountable.
Kyle Lowry hits a game-tying buzzer beater from half court to send the game to overtime where Dwyane Wade scores seven of his 24 points in the Heat's 102-96 win over the Raptors in Game 1.
DeMar DeRozan turns the ball over with Dwyane Wade making a great hustle play to go the other way for the layup and foul to seal the Heat's victory in OT against the Raptors.
