New Orleans
New York

[NEW YORK] — The New York Knicks played host to the New Orleans Pelicans last night but don't think that the home cooking gave them any sort of advantage. The 96-110 loss has the Knicks and their fans cringing as they brace for their next opportunity to redeem themselves. The loss bumps New York's record down to 17-21 on the season, while the victory gives New Orleans a 15-24 total on the year. It's not overly surprising that the Knicks would end up losing this one consider they did little to establish themselves as dangerous threats. Perhaps the showing can serve as an essential building block for the team in the days to come.

Leading the way in one of the finest individual performances of the season was Anthony Davis. Davis's borderline-historic night of 40 points, 18 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 blocks and 0 steals in 28 minutes will be remembered as one of the nights he truly displayed why he's held in such regard at the NBA level. Most importantly, the Pelicans managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Davis keeps producing at this rate and New Orleans keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though New York didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, Brandon Jennings did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 20 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Knicks can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though New York wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers. The Pelicans, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Brooklyn Nets.
