Anthony Davis throws down ridiculous putback dunk against Grizzlies

Wednesday November 5th, 2014

Anthony Davis threw down a ridiculous tip slam in Monday night's game against the Grizzlies in Memphis.

The Pelicans forward dashed into the paint after Eric Gordon heaved a fadeaway three from the right corner. The ball caromed off the front of the rim and bounced off the backboard into the path of Davis, who flushed it through the basket with his right hand.

Davis scored 14 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead the Pelicans to a 93-81 win.

The 21-year-old has logged a double-double in two New Orleans' three games this season, including a 26-point, 17-rebound, nine-block effort in a season-opening win over the Magic.

The Pelicans (1-2) face the Hornets in New Orleans on Tuesday.
