MILWAUKEE -- New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry wasnt about to worry about his teams flaws after its first victory of the season. Luis Scola Nets Jersey .Anthony Davis hit a pair of free throws with 12 seconds left and scored 32 points, and the Pelicans ended their winless start after eight games by beating the Milwaukee Bucks 112-106 on Thursday night.Are you kidding me, we were 0-8 and fighting for our lives, Gentry said. Everything that weve done in some kind of way had gone bad.To be able to finish the game and come away with a win, its relief, he said. Were not going to say it was just another game.The Philadelphia 76ers (0-7) are the remaining winless team in the NBA.Weve been working hard and playing our butts off, and tonight we just got one, Davis said. We needed everyone tonight to get this win.Jabari Parker scored a season-high 33 points for Milwaukee, which lost its second straight game to a team that was winless. In their last game Sunday, the Bucks fell 86-75 in overtime to Dallas, which was 0-5 coming into that game.We were in this situation in Dallas, Milwaukee coach Jason Kidd said. They hadnt won a game either and they were desperate. New Orleans was desperate, and they found a way to win a game.ETwaun Moore added 20 points for New Orleans, playing its third game in four nights.Milwaukee used a late 9-4 run to pull within 108-105 on Giannis Antetokounmpos three-point play with 40 seconds to go.Matthew Dellavedova made a free throw to cut the New Orleans lead to 108-106, but Davis converted both free throws to make it a two-possession game.Mirza Teletovic missed a running 3-point attempt with 6 seconds left, and Tim Frazier hit a pair of free throws to close the scoring.Frazier had 15 points, 10 assists and five rebounds for New Orleans. Four of the Pelicans starters scored in double figures.TIP-INSPelicans: F Cheick Diallo was sent to the Austin Spurs of the NBA Developmental League. Diallo was the 33rd overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft. ... New Orleans led the entire second half.Bucks: The first steel column went up this week during construction of the teams new arena. ... Parker made 13 of 26 shots, including a thunderous dunk on a pass from Dellavedova in the third quarter. ... Dellavedova had 12 assists, one shy of his career high. ... Starting C Miles Plumlee played 11 minutes, all in the first half, and all three of his shots were blocked by Davis.CHARITY STRIPEThe Pelicans have had trouble making free throws this year at 73 percent coming into the game, but made 25 of 27 against the Bucks. Weve had close losses and have missed 13 foul shots (in a game) and 12 foul shots, Gentry said. In those situations, you cant afford to do that. Tonight, we stepped to the line and shot them great.ANOTHER DOUBLE-DOUBLEAntetokounmpo had 17 points, 10 rebounds and one assist in 35 minutes, his second double-double of the season. He picked up two early fouls against Dallas on Sunday and never got into a rhythm, and was charged with his fifth foul with 5:53 left in the fourth quarter against the Pelicans. He didnt return until there was 2:40 left in the game and was unable to rally his team to victory.A TYPICAL ROOKIEThrough the Pelicans first nine games, Buddy Hield was averaging nine points, making only 33 of his first 96 shots (34 percent). Gentry calls Hield, the sixth overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft, a typical rookie. Hes trying to feel his way. Hes had some good games for us and hes had some struggles.UP NEXTPelicans: Host the Lakers Saturday. Los Angeles beat New Orleans in all three games last year.Bucks: Host the Grizzlies on Saturday.

Rousey will put her perfect 8-0 record and hardware on the line against another undefeated fighter, 7-0 Sara McMann in the main event of UFC 170, which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas Nevada on February 22nd.TORONTO -- Sebastien Bourdais drove his motor home from St. Petersburg, Fla., to the Indianapolis 500 last month, before getting in his No. 7 Dallara Chevrolet and competing in the race. When the Honda Indy kicks off in Toronto two weeks from now, hell be doing the same. Stopping for races in Watkins Glen, N.Y., and Pocono, Pa., along the way, the man who drives for a living doesnt mind the long trek. His family, wholl meet him in Rochester, N.Y., before heading on the open road with Bourdais for the next few weeks, doesnt seem to mind either. "Road trip!" Bourdais exclaimed with a laugh. "Its fun. Weve got bunk beds in there and the kids love it." Regardless of how he gets to Toronto, Bourdais is looking forward to his arrival. For the native of Le Mans, France, this years Honda Indy will mark his eighth time competing in the event. "Its one of these historic races that the fans are very knowledgeable about and its a track that we as drivers are always looking forward to," Bourdais said in a phone interview from St. Petersburg. "Its a cool place to come and race -- the track is awesome, the fans are great, and they come year after year. "That really makes it special for us." Bourdais has placed in the Top 10 at the Toronto race six times, but missed that mark for the first time last year when he finished 14th. He won the Toronto Indy in 2004, a year that kicked off the best IndyCar seasons of his career. Between 2004 and 2007, the Frenchman won four consecutive Champ Car World Series, all while racing with the Newman/Haas team. Since then, however, his IndyCar trophy case has been bare as he toils with Dragon Racing, a less established team. "It was very different times," Bourdais said of his dominant years. "I was with a championship-winning team and it was normal to win with Newman/Haas. "Now, being the underdog is a completely different situation. Were trying to do the best we can but its been a little more challenging than wed like. Were working at it, but it definitely hasnt been going the way we want it to so far." Bourdais left IndyCar after the 2007 season to focus on his dream of racing Formula One cars. He returned to the Indy circuit in 2011, but hasnt participated in a full season until now. No longer racing for Newman/Haas, Bourdais is findingg his return to the sport challenging. Chris McCullough Jersey. "Youre only as good as your car is and you cant do it on your own," he said. "I knew it was going to be a challenge but I basically just wanted to have fun again and Im doing that. "Obviously the fun level would be a little higher if we could be more competitive but its the cars I want to drive and the ones I really enjoy. As long as your passion is your job, youre doing all right." Bourdais is currently ranked 21st in the Indy standings with 133 points. Brazils Helio Castroneves, racing for Team Penske, ranks first with 332 points. With the season past its half-way point, Bourdais has a lot of catching up to do. His 14th-place finish in last Sundays Iowa Corn Indy 250 led Dragon Racing to release engineer Neil Fife, who had worked with Bourdais since 2011. Newcomer Tom Brown has not worked with Bourdais before. "The team thought it was best to try something different so here we are. Well get on with a new engineer and try to get something going for us," Bourdais said. "Changing engineers halfway through the year is always tough, but well do the best we can because thats all we can do." In Toronto, Bourdais will be competing against the top drivers in the world, including 26-year-old James Hinchcliffe. The Oakville, Ont., native has made a name for himself over the past two seasons, winning the rookie of the year award in 2011 with Bourdais former team Newman/Haas, and the most popular driver award in 2012 with Andretti Autosport. Hinchcliffe jumped from ninth to fourth in the standings with his victory in the Iowa 250. Working with Craig Hampson, Bourdais former engineer from his Newman/Haas victory days, Hinchcliffe has 266 points and three IndyCar victories this season. Bourdais, 34, was around Hinchcliffes age when he won the Toronto Indy. The veteran says hes been impressed with the young driver so far. "James has really shown everyone he has what it takes," Bourdais said. "Last year, stepping into the Andretti Autosport organization, its one of these things where you cant do it without a good team and he certainly found a great organization... "Hes got everything -- hes very aggressive, he doesnt make many mistakes and hes a really nice guy. I think he could have a very bright future." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaNFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
