Tyler Kaufman-USA TODAY Sports

The Hornets trailed 20-13 with 2:28 left in the first quarter when Anthony Davis checked in and New Orleans put Anderson and Davis next to each other for the first time in the game. For the next 11 minutes, the two played off each other beautifully and New Orleans went on a 22-11 run to take a 35-31 lead. The buzzer sounded and in came Robin Lopez. What followed was a 15 minute stretch that saw Lopez on the court with one or the other. What also followed was a 47-25 run that saw the Grizzlies take a 78-60 lead into the fourth quarter.
