Anthony Davis rejects Tristan Thompson’s shot (GIF)

The Cleveland Cavaliers and New Orleans Pelicans are in more similar situations than you’d think as while the Cavs are in a position to make a run at the postseason and the Pelicans are not, both teams are trying to get their young talent developed into stars in the NBA.

Two of those young, budding stars went toe-to-toe on Tuesday night when Anthony Davis and Tristan Thompson battled in the paint.

Thompson wanted to get the bucket and the points, Davis din’t want that to happen. Long story short, Davis won with authority.


This is what the Pelicans want to see, as Davis continues to turn in the highlight reel plays on Tuesday.
