Prolific Davis lifts Pelicans past Heat in OT, 124-123

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Anthony Davis vigorously punched his arm through the air as the final horn provided a fourth straight triumphant ending to a fourth straight prolific performance. The All-Star then faced the exuberant New Orleans crowd with both arms raised and began exchanging high fives with beckoning fans along the edge of the court.

Davis had 45 points, 17 rebounds, five blocked shots and five steals, and the Pelicans beat the Miami Heat 124-123 in overtime Friday night.

In time, the loss of fellow All-Star DeMarcus Cousins could doom New Orleans as it tries to secure one of the final Western Conference playoff spots. But not if Davis can help it. He has scored no fewer than 38 points during New Orleans' four-game winning streak and at least 42 three times.
