Davis has huge game in return, Pelicans beat Pistons 88-85

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Anthony Davis was feeling great, fired up about being back on the court and not at all subtle about showing it.

He struck a momentary pose with a huge smile after he'd finished a fast break with a soaring, one-handed dunk. He celebrated with a crouching fist pump after a clutch, mid-range jumper in the final minute.

When it was over, Davis had piled up 39 points, 13 rebounds and eight blocks in his return from a right shoulder sprain, and the New Orleans Pelicans won for the sixth time in seven games, 88-85 over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.
