Davis, Rondo, push Pelicans past Lakers, 128-125

NEW ORLEANS (AP) A rescheduled game this week that forced the Pelicans to play five times in six nights provided Anthony Davis and New Orleans with what would have been a reasonable excuse for fading against a young Lakers squad that was eager to push the pace after two nights off.

Instead, a determined Davis and seemingly rejuvenated Rajon Rondo spearheaded a riveting rally that has lifted them into fourth place in the Western Conference.

Davis capped off a 33-point performance with two clutch free throws and a game-sealing steal in the final seconds, Rondo had 24 points and 10 assists, and the Pelicans erased an 11-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat Los Angeles, 128-125 on Thursday night.
