Anthony Davis has been playing out of his mind lately. The New Orleans Pelicans forward has stepped up in the absence of running mate DeMarcus Cousins, who is out for the year with an Achilles injury.

On Sunday against the Utah Jazz, Davis once again reiterated to the rest of the conference that with the University of Kentucky product playing at the top of his game, New Orleans is going to be a complete hassle in the playoffs.

As the Pelicans took on the Jazz in New Orleans, Davis recorded a triple-double that included 10 -- yes, 10 -- blocks, six of which came in the first half alone.

The best part? It was Davis’ first triple-double of his career and it came on his 25th birthday.

Via Twitter:

Davis finished the game by adding 25 points and 11 rebounds, although the Pelicans lost to Utah, 116-99.

New Orleans is now tied for third in the West with the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
