Anthony Davis Leaves Arena Early After Suffering Shoulder Injury in Pelicans Win

"We sucked. Seemed like nobody was interested in playing", Davis said, via Andrew Lopez of NOLA.com. But it's yet another illustration of just how messed-up the situation is in New Orleans, home to a star player who wants out and a team that either couldn't or simply didn't trade him at the deadline.

Vucevic led four Magic players with at least 20 points as Orlando won its fourth straight game and sixth in its last seven.

Vucevic had 25 points and 17 rebounds, Evan Fournier scored 22 points, and Jonathan Isaac scored a career-high 20 points, including 16 in the first quarter, when Orlando raced to a 39-11.

While Davis admitted last week he didn't think he would play with the Pelicans again following his trade request, coach Alvin Gentry blatantly said he's ready to move on from the topic. We missed a lot of shots, easy shots, layups and stuff, that we normally make. The Boston Celtics are expected to present the Pelicans with a more desirable package in the offseason when the National Basketball Association rules will allow them to have both Davis and Kyrie Irving on their roster at the same time.

"It's just hard, you know, we want guys to be professional and do this, but it's hard for guys to go through what they've been through". The All-Star was seen leaving the Smoothie King Center while the contest was still ongoing. "We did that so far".

Hamidou Diallo Jumps over Shaq to Win Slam Dunk Contest
Turns out, Smith Jr. beat Diallo to the punch for his final dunk idea - jumping over future Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade . The issue is that it can be hard to get players in an event like that consistently after he's won it numerous times.

E'Twaun Moore, who has struggled with injuries this season, scored 19 points in his first start since January 22.

TOP PERFORMERS: Jrue Holiday leads the Pelicans with 8.0 assists and scores 20.9 points. Fortunately for New Orleans, the injury doesn't appear to be serious.

Pelicans: Julius Randle scored 15 points in a little less than 22 minutes off the bench, hitting three of five 3-point attempts. "We need to bury it". Oh, he didn't just leave the game.

Now, Davis' frustrations are coming out, and they're directed at his team. In the trade talks for Anthony Davis, a tie might go to any team that isn't the Los Angeles Lakers. "I'm done talking about it".
