New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis' streak of scoring at least 28 points in eight consecutive games ended on Monday night against the Brooklyn Nets. But he was too busy celebrating a tough overtime victory to be concerned about it. Behind swingman Tyreke Evans' season-high 33-point performance, the Pelicans stormed back from a 22-point deficit to beat the Nets 109-104 in overtime Monday night at the Smoothie King Center. ''We got a win, I don't care about any streak,'' Davis said. It was the second largest comeback in franchise history and the Pelicans' third consecutive victory, which included Saturday's stunning win against the two-time defending champion Miami Heat. "It was tough to watch our team play the way we did in the first half," Pelicans coach Monty Williams said. "We didn't have a lot of juice on the defensive end. In the second half we held them to 40 points in regulation and six in overtime ... a lot of effort. ... "The lord blessed us. I'm proud of our guys. We just fight and hang in there together." Davis came in scoring at least 28 points and grabbing nine or more rebounds in eight consecutive games, the longest streak since Shaquille O' Neal achieved the same statistics for 12 consecutive games in 2001.
