SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio Spurs seemingly had overcome certain defeat with a dominant run. The sold-out crowd at the AT&T Center was producing deafening cheers, believing the defending NBA champions would rallied as they had done so often last season.The reserved tone of Anthony Davis, New Orleans quiet superstar, rose amid the chaos, essentially saying, We got this.He had it.Davis scored the game-winning basket — a driving layup with 6.6 seconds left — and the New Orleans Pelicans held on for a 100-99 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night. Davis finished with 27 points and 11 rebounds.San Antonio went on a 15-4 run with Tony Parker and Tim Duncan on the bench to take a 99-98 lead. Danny Green capped the run with three free throws with 12 seconds remaining after he was fouled by Eric Gordon on a wild 3-point attempt as the shot clock was about to expire.It was the Spurs first lead since 8 minutes remained in the first quarter.When Danny Green made those three free throws, I told coach, were going to win the game, Davis said. Were going to get a bucket and were going to win this game.Davis drove past Aron Baynes for a layup with 6.6 seconds left to seal the win. Kawhi Leonard missed a pair of shots in the final seconds, snapping the Spurs five-game winning streak over the Pelicans.The play was supposed to go to Jrue (Holiday) for the back door, but me being me, when I caught the ball, I was in attack mode, Davis said. I just tried to make a good play. Jrue knew because he stopped and didnt go. I just tried to be aggressive.It was the mindset New Orleans had all night in flustering the veteran Spurs.We dont back down from any team, Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans said. We came out and executed, played really hard the whole game.Evans had 18 points, including buzzer-beating shots in the second and third quarters, and Jrue Holiday had 15 points and 11 assists.Parker scored 28 points, Manu Ginobili added 17 points, Green had 16 and Duncan had 11 points and 10 rebounds.It was a narrow escape for what early on seemed a dominant victory by New Orleans (3-2) over San Antonio (2-3).I think its more mental than anything, Green said. But I cant speak for everybody. When I talk to some of the older guys, some guys bodies are hurting a little bit. We have some back-to-backs coming up, but weve done this before. Theyve been here before. I feel like were in decent shape; still getting there. Were not in the greatest shape. Were just not in our normal team rhythm, our chemistry.Even when the Spurs did well defensively, blocking a layup by Holiday or forcing a miss by Evans on a fastbreak, the Pelicans hustled to gather the shots in midair and score.Holiday came out of nowhere to block Leonard on what looked like an uncontested layup off a bullet pass from Ginobili. Evans hustled over to help defensively and catch Parker coming out of a spin to the basket, forcing the Spurs point guard to throw the ball out wildly into Davis arms for the teams 17th turnover.San Antonio had 19 turnovers and struggled to match New Orleans intensity.Im one of players, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. So I think were out there playing hard. I understand a year after winning the championship youre going to get everyones best shot. I believe were out there playing hard and I believe things just havent gone out way.TIP-INSThe Spurs: Duncan had his 800th career double-double, the most among active players, placing him 14 behind Karl Malone for fifth. .
