Pelicans Fall To Toronto, 94-87

The Pelicans couldn't get their offense going, Anthony Davis missed the second half with a left wrist contusion, and the Raptors beat the Pels 94-87 at the Smoothie King Center on Wednesday night.

Davis was injured in a fall.  X-rays came back negative and Davis is now listed as "day-to-day."

Before leaving the game, he scored 7 points.  

"If you look at it, you can’t expect to win a game scoring eighty-seven points," Coach Alvin Gentry said after the game.

"Like I said in pregame, you’ve got to get the ball in the basket and we didn’t get the ball in the basket. You know, you give up ninety-four points at home, you’ve got to win the game. You’ve got to find a way to get ninety-five. Our defense was really good, but we can’t score the basketball. We can’t score the basketball and that’s been our struggle."

Gentry didn't see Davis' tumble in the second quarter.

"It definitely hurt us tonight, and with that being said, we have to find a way to pick up the pieces. It’s unfortunate," the coach said.

The Pelicans (25-40) are 4.5 games behind Denver for the eight seed in the NBA West with just 17 games to go in the regular season.
