The New Orleans Pelicans (0-2) were no match for the Orlando Magic (1-2) Friday night, stumbling to a 110-90 loss.

Anthony Davis’ stat line of 26 points, 17 rebounds, 3 blocks, 1 assist, and 1 steal was the lone bright spot in an otherwise embarrassing performance by the Pelicans. After a closely contested first quarter, the Magic outscored the Pelicans 31-15 in the 2nd quarter, keeping a sizable lead the rest of the way.

“Let’s face it, we’ve got some players who aren’t playing that well. We’ve got to play much harder than we played,”┬áPelicans head coach Monty Williams said with a scowl. ” We just did not play with a sense of urgency on every possession.”

Jrue Holiday scored 17, while Anthony Morrow added 14 off the bench in a losing effort.

“It just wasn’t us tonight,” said New Orleans guard Eric Gordon who scored 12. “The Magic just played harder and outworked us. We could never get in a flow throughout the whole game.”

New Orleans needs to get in a flow tonight as they host the Charlotte Bobcats (1-1). Tip-off from the New Orleans Arena is set for 7:00. The Pelicans are hoping to notch their first win of the season.
