OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Kevin Durant didn't play for the Thunder on Sunday, but it seemed like he showed up in a different uniform.

Anthony Davis put in a Durant-like effort, scoring 38 efficient points to lead the New Orleans Pelicans to a 101-99 victory over Oklahoma City.

It was the third-highest point total of Davis' career, and like Durant, his points piled up quickly and seemed effortless. He made 16 of 22 shots and had 12 rebounds while doing a little bit of everything. Like Durant, he scored inside and outside, put the ball on the floor and showed incredible grace for a nearly 7-foot player.
