Auburn Hills, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Anthony Davis scored 27 points with 10 rebounds and four blocks to help the New Orleans Pelicans in a 105-94 win over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night. Tyreke Evans tallied 18 points with nine assists and eight rebounds, while Ryan Anderson checked in with 17 points off the bench for the Pelicans, who snapped a five-game losing skid on the road. New Orleans was without starting point guard Jrue Holiday because of a right ankle injury suffered in Mondays loss at Boston. We played the right way and thats the only way I can really sum it up, said Pelicans coach Monty Williams. The ball moved, we defended (and) played in transition. Brandon Jennings led the Pistons with 19 points and Greg Monroe supplied 16 points with eight rebounds in the loss, Detroits second in its last 11 games. New Orleans imposed its will on the inside to open the game as each of the frontcourt starters contributed to a 10-2 run. Davis opened and closed the initial spurt with baskets, then the Pelicans slowly built a double-digit lead late in the first after Eric Gordons layup. Detroit held New Orleans scoreless over the final 2:25 of the quarter, however, and closed to within 22-18 entering the second. Jimmer Fredette scored eight points, including a pair of three-point plays, as part of a 19-2 run in the second that gave the Pelicans a 43-24 lead. We didnt do anything well in the second (quarter), said Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy. We brought absolutely no energy to the start of the game. New Orleans shot a blistering 68.4 percent from the floor in the second and held a 58-36 advantage at the half. The Pelicans led by as many as 24 in the third and had no trouble closing out the Pistons in the fourth to win their fifth straight in the series.

Anthony Zettel Jersey .C. -- Cam Newton wasnt flawless on Sunday.CLEVELAND -- Kyrie Irving managed to find a silver lining -- and a sliver of hope for the Cavaliers playoff chances -- while dealing with his latest injury. The All-Star point guard will miss at least two weeks with a strained biceps tendon, but hes hopeful his season is not over. "If you could take a positive from the situation, obviously that would be one, that at this point, I dont have to get surgery, which is tremendous," Irving said following shootaround Tuesday at the Cleveland Clinic Courts. Clevelands leading scorer got hurt Sunday night in a loss against the Los Angeles Clippers. An MRI taken Monday revealed the strain, but not a tear, which would have ended Irvings season. Its still not a certainty hell be back, but the Cavs will rest him for two weeks before making any decisions. With 15 games left, the Cavs enter their home matchup against Miami five games behind Atlanta for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. It was going to be a challenge for the Cavs to make up any ground with Irving, and now without him, theyre in a major bind. The 21-year-old was trying to strip the ball from Clippers forward Blake Griffin when his tendon gave out. "One of those freak plays against a strong individual in Blake," Irving said. "I tried to get the ball out of his hands. I knew something was wrong when I came to the bench. Obviously, I just felt just a weird feeling after that play in my shoulder. My arm looked a little different in the biceps area. Thats when I kknew that I strained it.dddddddddddd" Irving will miss at least eight games. Hes already sat out 41 in three NBA seasons, leading some to label him as injury prone. Its still possible he may need an operation, but Irving is trying to be optimistic. "Well see in two weeks," he said. "Im not going to give a definitive answer because I dont know that answer. At this point, Im just going to continue to support my teammates and be on the sideline. Whatever the medical team needs me to do and whatevers in my best interests, Im going to do." With his best player out, Cavs coach Mike Brown will start Dion Waiters in the backcourt with Jarrett Jack. Cleveland could get back C.J. Miles, who has missed 12 games with a sprained ankle. Waiters has provided a spark off the bench all season, and said hes going start with the same mindset hes had as a reserve. "Just going out there playing my game, let everything come to me," he said. "Dont go out there and try to press and do things I normally dont do. Just play the game and have fun." Waiters says all the Cavs have to step it up with Irving sidelined. "Kyrie is the best player on the team," Waiters said. "But it gives other guys the chance to play and show coach things they can do. Weve got to pick it up. Everybody has to be together and play for each other. Thats the biggest thing losing a huge piece like that. We have to play the game, move the ball and have fun out there."
