Anthony Davis ends struggles with monstrous performance

Through the first four games of the season, Anthony Davis was pulling in nothing but ugly stat-lines for the most part. His New Orleans Pelicans team being winless, shooting 38% from the field and averaging under 20 points per game.

Headlines were headlining, analysts were analyzing, critics were criticizing the Brow. Heck, I had some fellow co-workers argue me that Andre Drummond is a better overall player than Davis after these struggles. At long last, this nonsense has ended. Anthony Davis is back folks!

Davis erupted for 33 points in the second half alone; finishes the game tying a career best 43 points while adding in 10 rebounds 4 steals and 3 blocks. AD's Pelicans would eventually fall to 0-5 despite the valiant effort; taking the defeat to an extremely good Atlanta Hawks team 121-115.

This performance skyrockets Davis' scoring average up to 25.2 through five games; a performance like this hopefully shows that AD is out of whatever slump he was in, and that the Brow can propel back to potential MVP status.
