NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Anthony Davis tied his career high with 32 points, grabbed 17 rebounds and blocked six shots, and the New Orleans Pelicans erased a 16-point deficit to capture their third straight victory, 111-107 over the Denver Nuggets in overtime Sunday night.
Tyreke Evans had 20 points and Anthony Morrow added 14, including a 15-foot pullup in the lane that tied the game at 94 with 1 second left in regulation.
Davis' free throws gave New Orleans the lead for good at 106-104, and his block of Ty Lawson's driving layup prevented Denver from tying it with 1:14 left in overtime.
Davis became the first player in franchise history - going back to the club's founding as the Charlotte Hornets in 1988 - to have as many points, rebounds and blocks in one game.
Kenneth Faried had 22 points and 10 rebounds for Denver.
