NEW ORLEANS (AP) Anthony Davis had 30 points, 11 rebounds and three steals, and the New Orleans Pelicans handed the struggling Miami Heat their seventh loss in 11 games, 105-95 on Saturday night.

LeBron James twisted his right ankle while stepping on Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans' foot during a drive to the hoop late in the third quarter, but remained in the game and finished with 25 points, nine assists and eight rebounds. It was not enough for Miami, which gave guard Dwyane Wade and center Greg Oden the night off following Friday's victory at Memphis.

Pelicans guard Eric Gordon also sat out with a sore left knee, but New Orleans got 14 points from Evans, 12 from Al-Farouq Aminu and 11 from Luke Babbitt.
