Davis scores career-high 43 as Pelicans beat Jazz

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Anthony Davis wanted to come out strong to help the New Orleans Pelicans end their road swing with a win. He got off to a fast start and kept it going.

Davis had a career-high 43 points and 14 rebounds, Jrue Holiday added 19 points and eight assists, and the Pelicans beat the Utah Jazz 106-94 on Saturday night. Davis shot 16 for 23 from the field to help the Pelicans earn a split of their four-game western road trip.

"All of our guards did a great job of finding me and making sure I got the ball in my sweet spot," Davis said. Then it was my job to knock them down. It was a testament to my team. They know I try to get going early, so they give me the ball - knowing they're going to have a lot of shots during the course of the game."
