 NEW ORLEANS -- Anthony Davis has one game left to show why hes the best player under 21 years old in the NBA. Leo Durocher Jersey . For the past two games, hes looked rather good for any age, and has pulled the Pelicans out of a slump. Davis had 29 points and 14 rebounds and New Orleans defeated Milwaukee 112-104 on Friday night. Tyreke Evans scored 25 points for the Pelicans, whove won two straight after losing their previous eight games. "It feels good to get back in rhythm, winning some games," said Davis, wholl get to celebrate his 21st birthday in the Big Easy on Tuesday. "We know how that eight-game losing streak is and we dont want to get back to it, and weve got to keep working." Davis, who hit 12 of 22 shots on an array of layups, crowd-pleasing dunks and mid-range jumpers, is shooting 58 per cent (22 of 38) in his past two games. He had 28 points and 15 rebounds in a victory over the Lakers in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. The 6-foot-6 Evans, meanwhile, has been thriving since being moved from the bench into the starting lineup in the small forward spot. He had 24 points against the Lakers and 27 on Monday night in a loss at Sacramento. Being on the floor with Davis, who draws so much attention from opposing defences, has certainly helped, he said. "Its been fun. Thats the way its supposed to be," Evans said. "We both like to play together. We both work hard. To see us both going like that, it just makes things better for our team." Anthony Morrow added 16 points for New Orleans, including a 3-pointer as he was fouled to give the Pelicans their largest lead at 100-90 with 4:50 left. Brian Roberts scored 14 and Eric Gordon 12 for New Orleans. "We let Anthony Morrow get away from us. He made some shots going down the stretch," Bucks coach Larry Drew said. "We have a game plan against Davis and Tyreke Evans and Gordon and guys like that. Its the guys off the bench who end up hurting us." Khris Middleton scored 25 for Milwaukee, which lost its second straight. Jeff Adrien added a career-high 20 points to go with 10 rebounds, while Ramon Sessions had 16 points and Brandon Knight 15. Milwaukee entered the game without starting forward Ersan Ilyasova, suspended for throwing a punch in a game Wednesday. The Bucks then lost guard O.J. Mayo to an ejection for a flagrant-2 foul late in the first quarter. With Ilyasova out, John Henson was thrust into the starting lineup, drawing the assignment of defending Davis. "Hes tough, man. Just as far as the activity, they run a lot of stuff where they pull out the side on a pick and roll for him," Henson said. "He attacks or he shoots the jump shot, and thats kind of what they got going over there and it really helped to push the lead up to where we couldnt come back." There were 24 lead changes in what turned out to be a highly competitive, action-filled game between a pair of struggling teams. The Pelicans shot 50 per cent (42 of 84) but were unable to build a significant lead because the Bucks shot 45 per cent (40 of 89) even without Ilyasova and Mayo, who together average 23 points per game. Milwaukee led 79-78 after Sessions driving layup opened the fourth quarter, but Davis driving layup and 15-foot jumper sparked a 10-2 run that put the Pelicans in front for good. Neither team led by more than five points in the first half, when there were 20 lead changes. Mayo had taken only one missed shot when he was ejected after less than three minutes on the court. Mayo collided with Pelicans centre Greg Stiemsma, who was setting a screen, then appeared to shove Stiemsma with a flailing arm to the chest. Pelicans coach Monty Williams rushed in to pull Stiemsma away. Officials initially called a flagrant foul, but upgraded the severity to a flagrant-2 after video review. "I reacted the wrong way and handled it for sure the wrong way," Mayo said. "I want to apologize to the Bucks fan base, the city of Milwaukee and obviously New Orleans and the (fans) who came out and watched the game. Its definitely the wrong way to conduct yourself. Ive got to be better and I will." Still, the Bucks were clinging to a one-point lead before Roberts hit a 5-foot floater as he was fouled for a three-point play, giving New Orleans a 51-49 halftime lead. NOTES: Davis has now surpassed 20 points and 10 rebounds in a game 21 times this season, and he has 29 double-doubles overall. ... Pelicans reserve centre Jeff Withey, a rookie, grabbed a career-high eight rebounds in 14:29. ... Middletons 25 points were more than double his average of 11.7 coming in and four short of his career high. Jose Rijo Jersey . - Kobe Bryant and LeBron James traded hugs, big shots and verbal jabs all night with warmth and humour. Brandon Phillips Jersey . Klein went undrafted in the NFL last year following his senior season with the Wildcats. He was invited to the Houston Texans rookie camp, but was not offered a contract.The Atlanta Hawks were able to keep winning despite resting some starters in their last two games against lesser competition. Matching their longest winning streak in the last 17 seasons figures to be much more difficult with Friday nights road meeting against a Toronto Raptors team that has one of its best players back in the mix. You can catch all the action live NOW on TSN2 and TSN Radio 1050 Toronto, beginning with the pregame show. Atlanta (31-8) tops the Eastern Conference with Atlantic Division-leading Toronto 4 1/2 games back in third place. The Hawks are 1 1/2 behind Golden State for the leagues best record and are an NBA-best 24-2 since Nov. 28 thanks to 10 straight victories, their most since winning their first 11 in 1997-98. The franchise record is a 14-game streak Nov. 16-Dec. 14, 1993, and theyve also won a franchise-record 10 straight on the road. Atlanta is 14-1 away from home after starting 1-4. Its just the start. Its a long season, so were not too excited, said Jeff Teague, who leads the team with 17.5 points and 7.2 assists per game. Teague has averaged 20.9 points on 51.7 percent shooting during the winning streak, scoring 22 in Wednesdays 105-91 victory at Boston. He ranks seventh among guards with 8.3 points in the paint per game. I know this: Nobody in the league can keep Teague in front of them. Nobody, Celtics coach Brad Steven told the teams official website. Al Horford and Kyle Korver didnt play after coach Mike Budenholzer gave fellow starters Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll the night off in Tuesdays 105-87 win at Philadelphia. I dont like it, but its coachs call and itt paid off for us, Millsap said. Tyler Mahle Jersey. He might know what hes doing. The Raptors (26-12) have won twice in their last seven games but could put together a run with DeMar DeRozan back from a 21-game absence due to a torn tendon in his groin. DeRozan scored eight of his 20 points in the fourth quarter of Wednesdays 100-84 home win over the 76ers. He was 9 of 14 in 29 minutes as Toronto improved to 14-3 with him in the lineup. Its been tough sitting out this many games, just watching, DeRozan said. It felt good to get back out there. With DeRozan out, Toronto relied on Kyle Lowry, who scored 24-plus eight times in DeRozans absence compared to two such performances while playing alongside him. Lowry was 6 of 15 (40.0 percent) with 18 points Wednesday. The team went 3-7 when he shot 40.0 percent or worse with DeRozan out. The Raptors have won three straight in the series with DeRozan scoring 27 in a 126-115 road victory Nov. 26. DeRozan was 4 of 16 and had 15 points in Torontos 109-102 home win Oct. 29. He has averaged 24.2 points on 50.0 percent shooting in his last 11 meetings, going 14 of 27 from 3-point range. Lowry totaled 25 points on 6-of-23 shooting in the first two meetings. Atlanta is 74 of 158 (46.8) from beyond the arc over its last six games, while the Raptors have held their last four opponents to 27.0 percent 3-point shooting. The Hawks were 23 of 46 in the first two matchups. Toronto, which has committed 17-plus turnovers four times in its last six games, will have to take better care of the ball against the Hawks, who have forced 17-plus eight times in their last 10.
