Holiday, Pelicans stunt Lakers playoff push, 128-115

NEW ORLEANS (AP) The boos showering the court when LeBron James handled the basketball left little doubt that fans in New Orleans suspect the Lakers star had something to do with why the Pelicans are cutting playing time for healthy All-Star Anthony Davis - and sitting him out entirely when possible.

James, however, was far more concerned about the performance of his own teammates.

Jrue Holiday hit five 3-pointers and scored 27 points while Davis watched from the bench in street clothes, and the Pelicans beat the Lakers 128-115 on Saturday night to stunt Los Angeles' playoff push.
