Pierce couldn't get the game winner and neither could Eric Gordon, but Anthony Davis was there to tip it in for the win.
So let me get this straight. We almost beat the Heat without Kevin Garnett then we go out and lose to the Hornets/Pelicans with him? Yeah, that makes all the sense in the world. I like our chances against the 72 win Bulls but I'm sure we'd lose to the 2012 Bobcats (oddly enough, both involve Michael Jordan). Another bi-polar day for a bi-polar team.
Anthony Davis – the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft – tipped in the go-ahead basket with 0.3 seconds left in the fourth quarter to allow the Hornets to nip the Celtics, 87-86, Wednesday night in New Orleans. The Hornets were able to sweep the season series with the Celtics this season. The Celtics could managed just 31 points in the second half and lost their second straight, with road games in Dallas and Memphis on tap for Friday and Saturday nights.
