John Wall led the Washington Wizards to a 109-89 win Tuesday night against Anthony Davis and the visiting New Orleans Pelicans.
The All-Star point guard finished with 16 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists for his second triple-double of the season.
AD, coming off his ridiculous 59/20 performance in Detroit, pulled down twenty more boards but was held to just nine points in the loss.
Per the AP:
Marcin Gortat had 21 points and 11 rebounds for Washington, which pulled away in the second half of its season-high fourth straight home win. Jared Dudley scored 18 points on six 3-pointers and helped hold Davis in check after he had a monster game at Detroit.
“Tonight we kept giving him different looks, never let him feel comfortable, and anytime I could put pressure on him I did,” Dudley said. […] The Wizards have won three of four since the break, holding their opponent under 90 points in each victory.
“They had a guy playing behind (Davis) and in front of him the entire game,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. “We had to have other guys step up and make shots, and we just didn’t shoot the ball very well.” […] It was the first time this season that Davis failed to score in double figures when he played at least 20 minutes.
