Anthony Davis has 10 BLOCKS, records first career triple-double

Donovan Mitchell

The New Orleans Pelicans announced that superstar big man Anthony Davis will play Sunday against the Utah Jazz.

Mitchell, who made 1 of 8 shots in the first half, made 9 of 13 as the Jazz outscored the Pelicans 68-48 after halftime.

Ricky Rubio led the Jazz with 30 points, and he almost had a triple-double with 10 rebounds and seven assists, leading the Jazz to their sixth win in a row.

The Pelicans sorely missed Davis' presence Friday, as their loss to Washington snapped an 11-game winning streak.

Rondo has been offensively solid in the three games between the teams this season, averaging 14.3 points and 7.3 assists while shooting 58.1 percent and making seven of 14 from 3-point range.

He has 11 double-doubles in 19 career matchups with Utah, averaging 21.6 points and 10.1 rebounds, and has also posted three 30-point games and one 40-point effort.

Utah has a 17-2 record in its last 19 games and has been the best defense in the league since January 1, allowing 98.8 points per game.

The Jazz have now won 11-straight games on the road, and they've won 18 of their last 20 games.

New Orleans cut the deficit to seven midway through the quarter, but Utah rebuilt it to 13 on Mitchell's basket with 3:38 left.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said that Davis, who the Pelicans listed as questionable in Saturday's injury report, won't have a minutes restriction if he plays Sunday.

New Orleans scored the first six points of the second quarter, and the score was tied six more times in the period.
