VIDEO REPORT: Anthony Davis pours on 43 against Bucks

Anthony Davis was too much to handle for the Bucks on Monday.

Milwaukee dropped Monday night's game against New Orleans, 114-103, as Anthony Davis tied his career-high with 43 points (14 points after the first, 20 by halftime) and 10 rebounds. The Bucks allowed the Pelicans to shoot 60 percent or more through the first three quarters on their way to being outscored 27-19 in the fourth.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a career-high 29 points, but after giving the Bucks a late lead in the final quarter, New Orleans responded with a 14-2 run that helped them add to their lead. Davis registered his third 40-point outing of the season and led his team to their 35th win of the season.

Hear from Michael Carter-Williams and John Henson in the locker room following tonight's game about defending Davis, and Giannis' explosive night. The Bucks have off Tuesday, but they'll be back in action to face the Orlando Magic on Wednesday inside the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
