Somebody is in midseason form.
Anthony Davis looked like a guy ready to lead a playoff team when the season tips off next week, dropping 33 points and 16 rebounds on Orlando Wednesday night. Davis was far from perfect, he shot just 8-of-24 on the night, but he got to the line 19 times — he forced overtime hitting two free throws — and was the best player on the court in his 41 minutes.
It wasn’t enough, the Magic beat the Pelicans 110-107 in overtime. Nikola Vucevic led Orlando scoring 24 points.
