Davis leads Pelicans past Spurs, 108-103 and into playoffs (Yahoo Sports)

After Anthony Davis’ final flurry of clutch shots, blocks and rebounds ensured the Pelicans’ first postseason berth since before he was drafted, the 22-year-old All-Star known as the ”unibrow” was ready to admit how much it meant to him. ”We played our hearts out.” In the biggest game of his three-year NBA career, Davis had 31 points and 13 rebounds, and the New Orleans earned its first playoff berth since 2011 with a 108-103 victory over San Antonio on Wednesday night. Davis, who’ll make his playoff debut against Golden State next weekend, came through in the waning minutes with a pair of clutch jumpers, two blocks and two rebounds to prevent the Spurs from pulling off a 23-point comeback. ”We went to A.D. down the stretch and he came through on both ends of the floor,” Pelicans coach Monty Williams said, calling Davis’ block of Borris Diaw’s late shot ”phenomenal.” Tony Parker had 23 points and Diaw 20 for San Antonio, which needed to win to secure the second seed in the Western Conference playoffs.
