(NEW ORLEANS) – DeMarcus Cousins slammed a water bottle on the floor, angry about the way he was playing and the two early fouls that led coach Alvin Gentry to sit his star center earlier than planned. By the end of the game, the Pelicans' mercurial big man had redeemed himself with a late-game flourish that helped New Orleans hold on for victory after Anthony Davis was forced from the game with a sprained right ankle. Cousins scored 16 of his 20 points after Davis hobbled to the locker room in the third quarter, lifting New Orleans to a 112-109 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Monday night. Rajon Rondo capped a 12 point, 15 assist performance with two transition layups in the last 1:21 to help secure a victory the Pelicans needed to restore morale after a listless blowout loss in Minnesota over the weekend. Detroit coach Stan Van Gundy was exasperated by his team's inability to get stops. Scoring was not as difficult for Detroit until the final 12 seconds, when Avery Bradley missed two jumpers that could have tied the game. Tobias Harris scored 25 points and Bradley had 24 for the Pistons, who've lost three of four. Andre Drummond, who missed two of Detroit's previous three games, had 16 points and 14 rebounds.
