Davis’ dunks aplenty lead Pelicans past 76ers, 99-74 (Yahoo Sports)

NEW ORLEANS, LA - JANUARY 26: Anthony Davis #23 of the New Orleans Pelicans dunks against the Philadelphia 76ers on January 26, 2015 at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. (Photo by Layne Murdoch Jr./NBAE via Getty Images)Anthony Davis stood at the top of the key, pumping his fist and letting out a roar. His adrenaline-infused reaction was inspired not by one of his five thunderous dunks against the Philadelphia 76ers, but the way Omer Asik converted Davis’ crisp pass under the basket into a layup as he was fouled. Everybody’s playing hard and that’s all that the coaches ask for.” Davis had 32 points, 10 rebounds and four blocked shots, and New Orleans stretched its season-long winning streak to four games with a 99-74 victory over the Sixers on Monday night. Ryan Anderson scored 19 points and Eric Gordon added 13 for New Orleans, while Tyreke Evans tied a season high in assists – set one night earlier – with 12.

NEW ORLEANS, LA - JANUARY 21: Kobe Bryant #24 of the Los Angeles Lakers handles the ball against the New Orleans Pelicans during the game on January 21, 2015 at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. (Photo by Layne Murdoch Jr./NBAE via Getty Images)Kobe Bryant will have surgery Wednesday on his torn right rotator cuff, likely ending his 19th season with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Lakers will announce a timetable for Bryant’s recovery after surgery, but coach Byron Scott anticipates losing the third-leading scorer in NBA history for the rest of the year. His famously resilient body has finally worn down from the accumulated grind of nearly two decades and several lengthy postseasons with the Lakers, including five NBA title runs.
