Anthony Davis made Pelicans' history once again Friday night but there was one thing his team needed more than anything else heading into the night: A win. Davis accounted for 43 points and 10 rebounds to lead the New Orleans Pelicans to a 114-100 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Davis' 43-point performance moved him to No. 1 on the Pelicans' all-time scoring list and gave the Pelicans (28-23) their first win since losing All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins to a season-ending Achilles injury. Davis, 24, is now the Pelicans' all-time leader in points, rebounds and blocks. Pelicans guard E'Twaun Moore also chipped in 26 points on 10-of-14 shooting -- his eighth 20-point performance of the season. Rajon Rondo had seven points, seven rebounds and 13 assists.
