Davis, Moore, propel Pelicans past Pacers, 96-92

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Anthony Davis stood in front of Indiana's bench, holding up his right arm triumphantly as his tough, 15-foot baseline fade went through to give New Orleans a four-point lead with 53 seconds left.

Davis pushed the advantage to six points with his gritty put-back of Jrue Holiday's missed free throw with 15 seconds left. Then the 25-year-old, five-time All-Star added two more clutch free throws with 7.6 seconds left.

"The only thing I was thinking was like, `Please don't go into overtime,'" recalled Davis, whose team is in the midst of playing five games in six nights. "Just knowing that, the player I am for this team, they look for me to make shots toward the end of the game. ... I just tried to take it upon myself to make plays for the team."
