By his own standards, superstar Anthony Davis had a relatively quiet night for the New Orleans Pelicans. The power forward finished with 7 points, 8 rebounds, 3 blocks, 3 assists and 2 steals as the Houston Rockets focused on defending the young phenom.

Despite this, the New Orleans Pelicans put together their best performance of the season, dominating a talented Rockets team from start to finish, ending the night with an impressive 111-83 victory.

Friday's win comes two nights after an emotional overtime loss in San Antonio, something that wasn't lost on Pelicans head coach Monty Williams.

"To be able to play against a playoff team that's going to contend for a championship that way after what happened to us the other night says a ton about character and resiliency," Williams said. "Our guys came focused and flushed what happened the other day."

Everything was falling for the Pels, who led from start to finish.

Tyreke Evans finished with 21 points on 10-15 shooting, 5 assists and 4 rebounds in only 27 minutes of play.

"We just played together," said Evans. "We played good defense. We shared the ball. All of our guys came to play tonight."

Ryan Anderson led the bench for New Orleans, leading all scorers with 22 points scoring inside the paint and beyond the arc.

"He stretches the floor for us," said Evans of Anderson. "He opens up the lane for me and the guys. When he's knocking down his shot, he's unstoppable."

The Pelicans bench played a complete game, finishing with 59 points. Dante Cunningham chipped in 13, while Jimmer Fredette added 10.

The sold out crowd at the Smoothie King Center reached their loudest ovation in the second half when Fredette grabbed a steal and lobbed a perfect alley-oop pass to Austin Rivers who throw it down for a dunk.

New Orleans improves to 16-15 with the victory, including an impressive 11-4 mark at home. They'll remain at the Smoothie King Center on Monday, hosting the Washington Wizards (22-10). Tip-off is set for 7:00.
