The Spurs fell behind by as many as 15 in the first quarter and just could not recover, closing the deficit to as little as three but never being able to get over the hump.

Anthony Davis was the focal point of both the Pelicans offense and defense, finishing with an impressive 31 points, 13 rebounds, and three blocks in a game New Orleans had to win to secure a playoff berth. Tyreke Evans also put together an impressive performance, 19 points and 11 assists.
