The Brow put up 30 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks against Dwight Howard and the Rockets, too. Find out why his stat line is another indication he’s perhaps one of the NBA’s best five players right now. Read More »

Monty Williams, Jrue Holiday Stress Need To Get Anthony Davis More Shots

Anthony Davis

Anthony Davis scored 30 points on 14-of-19 shots in the New Orleans Pelicans’ 112-85 loss the Golden State Warriors last night. His teammates made just 23 of their 70 field goals, good for an abysmal shooting mark 32.8 percent. Thankfully, the Pelicans admitted post-game that getting Davis more attempts is crucial going forward. What’s frustrating is that coach Monty Williams said the exact same thing last week.

Anthony Davis’ 30 & 15 On TNT Was Not A Revelation

Anthony Davis

At this point, any time we see a nationally known writer express suprise at the exceptional talent of Anthony Davis, we think long and hard about blocking them.* When The Unibrow™ dropped 30 points and snatched 15 rebounds against the Dubs last night in the bac kend of a TNT double-header, some have claimed it was Ant’s big introduction to the world.

Anthony Davis is a known commodity and MVP contender, so lets stop pretending we all didn’t know this already. Read More »

New Orleans Pelicans coach Monty Williams recently said that superstar Anthony Davis could eventually “go for 40 and 20.” That might be hyperbole, but we’ll never know it for sure unless The Brow gets more opportunities to put up numbers.

Watch Anthony Davis Explode For Career-High 43 Points On 16-23 Shooting

Anthony Davis might not be the league’s best defender. He probably isn’t the league’s best scorer, either. But if the 21 year-old superstar can maintain his incredible rate of growth, it seems only a matter of time until he owns both distinctions. Watch the third-year pro – whose pre-draft calling card was defense, by the way – explode for a career-high 43 points on 16-of-23 shooting in the New Orleans Pelicans’ 106-94 road win over the Utah Jazz on Saturday.
