OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Anthony Davis scored 38 points to lead the New Orleans Pelicans to a 101-99 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday night.

It was the third-highest point total of Davis’ career. He made 16 of 22 shots and had 12 rebounds.

Jrue Holiday scored 11 points and matched a career high with 15 assists for the Pelicans.

Russell Westbrook scored 29 points for the Thunder, but he missed a 3-pointer that could have given Oklahoma City the lead in the closing seconds. Reggie Jackson added 19 points.

Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant missed his second straight game because of a sprained right ankle. He was hurt Thursday against the Golden State Warriors when he stepped on Marreese Speights’ foot. Thunder coach Scott Brooks said Durant is day-to-day.
