Cousins, Davis lead Pelicans past Bucks, 115-108

NEW ORLEANS (AP) When DeMarcus Cousins was asked about his soaring, one-handed, put-back dunk in the fourth quarter, the Pelicans star took the opportunity to have a little fun at the expense of Pelicans teammate Jameer Nelson, sitting two lockers away.

"Well, I saw that Jameer was going to miss, so something just told me to keep going," said a chuckling Cousins, who got a running start from about the 3-point line on the play. "But when it left his hand, it didn't look too good."

The thunderous, fourth-quarter jam, which brought roaring fans out of their seats, highlighted a 26-point, 13-rebound performance and sent New Orleans on its way to a 115-108 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.
