Davis returns, Pelicans edge Jazz 119-111

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Anthony Davis and Tyreke Evans needed only eight dominant minutes to undo more than three quarters of superb basketball by the hapless Utah Jazz.

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."
