Great defence. Great forwards. Great special teams," Kings coa

NEW ORLEANS - Anthony Davis and Tyreke Evans needed only eight dominant minutes to undo more than three quarters of superb basketball by the hapless Utah Jazz. Malik Hooker Womens Jersey .Returning from a chest injury, Davis scored nine of his 31 points in the fourth quarter, when the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 14-point deficit for a 119-111 victory on Tuesday night.The only thing that matters is that we won, Davis said. We just stayed with it.Davis, who sat out most of Friday nights victory over Cleveland and all of Sunday nights overtime loss to Golden State, played with a protective vest that did not appear to inhibit him.It didnt change the way I played, said Davis who came in averaging 24.3 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.7 blocks. I wasnt really thinking about it. I didnt really feel it either.Davis had nine rebounds and three blocks, with all three rejections coming in the pivotal final four minutes.I knew it was tight and they were getting a lot of offensive rebounds and finishing around the basket, so I just wanted to make sure I protected the rim, Davis said. Knowing that we had the momentum, I didnt want to let them get an easy bucket.Ryan Anderson hit six 3-pointers and finished with 28 points for New Orleans, which shot 59.5 per cent (47 of 79). Evans added 19 points, scoring nine during the Pelicans 41-point fourth quarter.Evans said the Pelicans locked in during the final period, not wanting to squander a home game against a struggling opponent before starting a stretch of a dozen games against mostly playoff contenders.We know that we definitely needed that game, so we dug down deep in the fourth, Evans said.Enes Kanter scored 29 points for Utah, which has lost three straight and 12 of 13. Gordon Hayward scored 17 for the Jazz, which fell despite shooting 50 per cent and scoring 68 points in the paint.There are so many good things about the way we played, Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. We really executed on both ends and then (New Orleans) turned it up and a couple of players, on their end, made some great plays.The Pelicans went ahead for good on consecutive transition layups by Evans, the first coming between three Jazz defenders who had sprinted back to try to stop him. Davis helped set up the second layup with his block from behind of Kanters attempted put-back.That gave New Orleans a 105-104 lead with 3:17 left.Soon after, Davis gave the Pelicans a five-point lead when he converted Evans driving pass into a layup as he was fouled. Davis capped his night with a reverse dunk in the final minute that sent the crowd into a frenzy.Trey Burke had 16 points for Utah, but scored only once after starting 5 of 5 for 14 points in the first quarter. Alec Burks also scored 16 for the JazzKanter had 10 points in the third quarter, when Utah scored 33 and led by as much as 11 when Dante Exum soared into the paint to grab an offensive rebound and in one motion tossed in a short floater at the horn to make it 89-78.The Jazz led 92-78 on Trevor Bookers dunk early in the fourth quarter before New Orleans went on an 18-7 run capped by consecutive 3s from Anderson and Austin Rivers, who had 12 points.TIP-INSJazz: Utah played a second-straight game without front-court starter Derrick Favours, who was questionable with a sprained right ankle. Rudy Gobert started at centre in his place. ... The Jazz fell to 3-2 when shooting 50 per cent or better.Pelicans: New Orleans turned the ball over nine times in the first quarter. The Pelicans have had nine or fewer turnovers in five games this season. ... New Orleans 68 points allowed in the paint was a season-high.PHILOSOPHICAL DIFFERENCESPelicans coach Monty Williams said he didnt understand why the Golden State Warriors sent video to the league of Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green getting hit in the face by the elbow of Pelicans reserve Dante Cunningham on Sunday night. Williams said the contact looked inadvertent to him.If I have a problem with another team I go talk to the coach. Thats how I operate, Williams said. I dont like playing that game of calling the league and kind of whining about what happened.UP NEXTJazz: Visit Miami on Wednesday.Pelicans: Visit Houston on Thursday. Quincy Wilson Jersey . It was the most lopsided loss in Lakers history. Darren Collison had a team-high 24 points while starting at shooting guard for the injured Jamal Crawford. Chris Paul added 13 points and 11 assists for the Clippers, who apparently are trying to make up for decades of humiliation at the hands of the Lakers all in one season; theyve won the last two meetings by a combined 84 points. Malik Hooker Jersey . Sections of the British media reported Friday that Brooklyn Beckham, the son of United great David, was invited to a training session at the club on Thursday. http://www.authoritycoltsshop.com/quinc … rsey-c-47/ . I kept my eyes focused up on the camera during each approach. I just tried to stay focused on my form, as I didnt know what the ball reaction was. I was quite emotional at the end. I did not actually see any of the shots in the game until I got home and watched the video.GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Henrik Lundqvist had his game-day face on at practice. He still smiled and answered all the questions thrown at him Monday about the Los Angeles Kings -- the New York Rangers long-awaited opponent in the Stanley Cup finals. "Exciting. Long flight," the star goalie said Monday before he and his teammates headed to California for New Yorks first appearance in the finals since winning the title in 1994. "East Coast-West Coast. Ill look forward to this matchup." If there wasnt already enough pressure on Lundqvist to lead his team to the championship, he is now part of the hype machine heading into Game 1 on Wednesday. Headlines are screaming: "King Henrik vs. the Kings." "Clever," he said with a slight laugh. The Rangers have been waiting since Thursday to find out if they would face the 2012 Stanley Cup-winning Kings or the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks in the finals. They took two days off before returning to practice on Sunday. Most of the players said they watched at least part of Los Angeles third road Game 7 win of this playoff year that night. So practice on Monday had a bit more focus for the Rangers as they knew exactly who was standing in their way next. "Any team you play at this time of year is a good hockey team, especially a team that has kind of been around the playoffs and the Stanley Cup finals a couple of times in the last few years," forward Derek Stepan said. "This is a very good hockey club, We have a tough challenge in front of us." The Kings returned to Los Angeles after their 5-4 come-from-behind overtime win at Chicago and took Monday off. They have played a record 21 playoff games before the finals -- one more than the Rangers, who eliminated the Montreal Canadiens in six games during the Eastern Conference finals. Before this year, no team that played seven games in each of the first two rounds had reached the finals. Now, both clubs have done it. The Kings taking it a step further with a trio of seven-game series. "When you knew you were playing L.A., the adrenaline started coming a little bit more," Lundqvist said. "Youve been thinking about this ever since you beat Montreal, but now knowing were going to L.A., it was easier to focus on whats coming. "You just try to now come back to the focus and mindset you had last week. Its been nice to get a little break heree and get away from it a little bit because its been that intense. Quincy Wilson Youth Jersey. " Both teams will be back to the grind on Tuesday for media day, leading up to the opener the following night. The Rangers and Kings split two games during the regular season -- with each team winning in the other clubs building -- but they havent seen each other since Los Angeles 1-0 victory at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 17. New York opened with a five-game Western road trip as final renovations were being made at the Garden. Its only win during that stretch was a 3-1 victory at Los Angeles on Oct. 7 -- a 28-save performance by Lundqvist. "Great goaltending. Great defence. Great forwards. Great special teams," Kings coach Darryl Sutter provided as a quick scouting report on the Rangers. "Were up against it again." The Rangers know that many, if not most, in the hockey world arent giving them much of a chance to win the Cup. They neither mind nor embrace the role of underdog. They have heard it before, and have just gone about their business. "When you get into the NHL, you know how hard it is to win," forward Brad Richards said. "The underdog thing and the favourite thing really doesnt mean anything in the locker room. You have to go out and play." New York needed seven games to get past division rival Philadelphia in the first round. The Rangers werent expected to beat Pittsburgh from the start, and certainly not after they fell into a 3-1 series deficit. Montreal was coming off a stirring seven-game victory over defending Eastern Conference champion Boston, so odds makers favoured the Canadiens in their matchup against New York, too. But here the Rangers are as the last team standing. "To put it quite simply, were up against the team that won the Stanley Cup two years ago that just beat the defending Stanley Cup champions, that without a doubt is battle-tested," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "We know exactly what we have to do. If we want to have a chance, were going to have to bring our best hockey of the year. Its as simple as that. "Weve had a couple of good practices, were going to have another good one tomorrow, and were going to be ready come Wednesday." He added one more thing as he left the media interview tent while wearing his sandals, to go prepare for a cross-country flight. "Bring your shorts," he said.
