The New Orleans Pelicans can't do anything to quell media chatter regarding the future of Anthony Davis. All the Pelicans can do is make it as hard as possible for Davis to leave New Orleans.

Part of that, of course, is showing Davis that the Pelicans can compete with the best teams in the Western Conference. And while they did a pretty good job of that last spring, reaching the conference semifinals for the first time in 10 years, things have been tougher this season.

This might just be the wildest game you’ll see all year.

The Hawks entered tonight’s game winning three of their last four games and narrowly losing their last game to the Pacers in Atlanta. The team was traveling light in the frontcourt as Alex Len continues to recover and with Omar Spellman continuing to be sidelined for a little while longer.

The Lakers bounced back from a rough road trip with an impressive win at home against Anthony Davis and the Pelicans, thanks to some impressive play on both ends from Ivica Zubac.

The Los Angeles Lakers got to see their center of the future at his best on Friday when they hosted the New Orleans Pelicans at Staples Center. No, I’m not talking about Anthony Davis: I’m, of course, talking about the one and only Ivica Zubac.

Indiana won a game relying on their offense, topping Atlanta on the road. Eight Pacers reached double figures, led by Thaddeus Young (21 points) and Tyreke Evans (19).

The Indiana Pacers needed a little bit from a lot of different guys to hold on late against an Atlanta Hawks team determined to keep their winning streak alive. The Pacers did their part to help the Hawks out early by falling behind 12-2 and missing their first eight shots. They trimmed the lead to three, but again fell behind after a pair of Atlanta threes, trailing 20-11 with five minutes left in the first.

The Spurs have been on a hot streak lately, and tonight it was the bench players who put away the Minnesota Timberwolves with hot shooting from Marco Belinelli and Davis Bertans sealing the game in the second half as LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan sat on the bench resting for the second half. Derrick White had a solid game on defense, taking on taller players on switches and holding his own as often as not. Robert Covington was solid for the Timberwolves, hitting outside shots and playing defense, but they were missing their starting point guard, Jeff Teague, and with Derrick Rose missing the second half with an injury, the Wolves couldn’t do much on offense as the Spurs won easily.

LeBron James had to leave the game with a groin injury, but Rajon Rondo and Ivica Zubac stepped up to lead the Lakers past the Golden State Warriors in a crazy Christmas Day blowout.

The Los Angeles Lakers lost star forward LeBron James, but still gave their fans a convincing 127-101 win over the Golden State Warriors in a conflicting rollercoaster of a Christmas Day game.

Why don’t the Rockets make 26 threes every night? If I were coaching the team, I would just tell them to make all their threes every night. Seems easy.

It’s unlikely that Houston will set the three point record again tonight, but that doesn’t mean that the bevy of triples isn’t a wanted commodity. The Rockets have set all kinds of three point records over the last two seasons under Mike D’Antoni, so it was about time they finally broke the single-game record too.
