The star of the New Orleans Pelicans, Anthony Davis, was not satisfied with his team's performance in a 1
"We suck," Davis later told reporters. "Nobody was interested in the game, that's what it looked like."
The center had its worst game of the season and ended with three points in 1-of-9 shooting. It was only the second time in 44 games that he did not reach double-digit numbers, while New Orleans was down 16 in the 24 minutes he played.
Davis did not play the entire fourth quarter with the team that followed him more than 20.
The All-Star was back in his third game from a finger injury that cost him three weeks of action. The prevailing history in New Orleans in recent weeks, however, surrounded his trade request. The team offered deals, but could not come to a deal before the close of trading.
The organization then decided to let him play the rest of the year instead of protecting him to maintain his health for a possible offseason trade.
Granted, the performance against magic is probably not what many expected.
The pelicans are mostly out of the playoff race with 25-33, but the blowout loss on Tuesday against the magic was still a disappointment.
