Unreal... no one expected this.
Pelicans sweep the blazers and move on to conference 2nd round.
The numbers just don’t make sense: two players combined for 88 points on 30-of-47 shooting. Davis had 47 of those points, needing just 24 shots to get there. He’s the backbone of the team’s defense, too. Here’s one of his three blocks, but make no mistake — his impact is much greater than that counting stat.
And then there’s Holiday, who scored 41 points of his own while hitting 15-of-23 from the field along with eight assists. After a video review reversed an out-of-bounds call, Holiday took advantage of the free possession and buried this pull-up dagger.
Davis’ 47 points was a new scoring high for this postseason, a new franchise playoff record, and a personal playoff best. The Pelicans are the first seed rated No. 6 or lower to sweep a first round playoff series, and it sent Portland spiraling to their 10th straight postseason loss.
Portland put up a good fight, but in the end, it wasn’t enough.
