In all likelihood, neither the Boston Celtics nor the New Orleans Pelicans will be playoff bound, but they sure had a great battle on Sunday night.

Anthony Davis and Kris Humphries both traded big buckets at the end of the fourth quarter. Davis buried a jumper to give the Pelicans a 112-110 lead with 1.1 seconds remaining in regulation, but Humphries responded by taking an inbounds pass from Rajon Rondo and draining a tough overtime-forcing shot in Davis' grill as time expired.

New Orleans would ultimately prevail in the extra session, though, earning a 121-120 win.

Davis scored a career-high 40 points for the Pelicans. Humphries put in 16 for the Celtics.
