The 2017-18 finalists for MVP are LeBron James, James Harden and Anthony Davis.
Davis is also in the running for Defensive Player of the Year, where he's up against Rudy Gobert and Joel Embiid. Harden and LeBron are tough company for the MVP category and there's a general expectation that Harden will go home with the award, but AD certainly made his case, carrying New Orleans into the playoffs after DeMarcus Cousins went down. The winner will be announced in June. May 16 - 9:02 PM

Anthony Davis had 34 points, 19 rebounds and four blocks in the Pelicans season-ending Game 5 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.

Davis did all he could to try to keep the Pelicans alive, getting a double-double in all nine postseason games, but unfortunately, he and New Orleans had to face the Warriors. AD dominated all year and will be back in 2018-19 as one of the league's best.
May 9 - 2:06 AM

Anthony Davis posted a 26-point, 12-rebound double-double during Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Warriors, adding one assist, one steal and two blocks over 40 minutes.

Davis also committed an unfortunate team-high six turnovers in the loss, and as a whole, the Pelicans turned over the rock 19 times which lead to plenty of fastbreak opportunities for Golden State. New Orleans now finds themselves sitting in a 1-3 hole, which is something that only 11 teams in NBA history have been able to bounce back from.
May 6 - 6:41 PM

Anthony Davis owned the paint during a 119-100 win over the Warriors in Game 3 on Friday, scoring 33 points with 18 rebounds, three assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes.

It looked like the Warriors were going to keep The Brow in check early with AD only scoring three points in the first quarter. He added just eight more in the second quarter before he exploded in the third to put this game out of reach. He and Rajon Rondo were clicking in a big way with Rondo hitting AD with an assisted bucket seven times -- New Orleans scorers were generous with some of those assists, though. The Warriors were doing a great job of keeping him out of the restricted area in Game 1 and 2, so they'll have to figure out how to get their strong defensive rotations back. As everyone knows, AD can erupt regardless of how good the defense is. We have a series.
May 4 - 11:01 PM

Anthony Davis hit 12-of-24 shots and a 3-pointer for 25 points, 15 rebounds, five assists, two steals and three blocks in Tuesday's Game 2 loss to the Warriors, putting New Orleans in an 0-2 hole.

Davis was great, as usual, but the Pelicans are going to have their hands full trying to play on both ends of the court with the Warriors, who got Stephen Curry back tonight. Of course, AD's left shin was being attended to at halftime tonight and could be a problem going forward, but with elimination at the hands of the Warriors likely looming, our guess is he'll play if he can walk. He's powered through injury flare ups all season and should continue to do so.
May 2 - 1:37 AM

Anthony Davis scored 21 points with 10 rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 34 minutes against the Warriors in a 123-101 blowout loss on Saturday.

He could not get anything going outside of the paint, making just 1-of-11 on his shots outside of three feet. The Blazers couldn't handle AD as a roll man last round, but the Warriors are an elite switching team with Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Kevon Looney showing up on defense vs. The Brow. He'll have to get hot from outside to post a big game.
Apr 29 - 1:07 AM

Anthony Davis is extremely confident his Pelicans can compete with the Warriors in their playoff matchup.

Davis was dominant in the Pelicans sweep of the Blazers, averaging 33.0 points, 11.8 rebounds, 2.8 blocks and 1.8 steals. Despite being underdogs to the heavily-favored Warriors in round two, he believes the Pels are going to shock some folks. "We know we can beat them. We've done it in the regular season, and we've been in every game that we've lost," Davis said. "We know we're a good matchup against these guys and we've got a lot of confidence in ourselves."
Apr 28 - 1:44 PM

Anthony Davis scored a playoff career-high 47 points to help sweep the Blazers 131-123 during a Game 4 victory on Saturday, adding 11 rebounds, one assist, three blocks and two 3-pointers.

He was 15-of-24 from the field and 15-of-17 from the line for a 74.7 TS% as he set a franchise record for points in a playoff game, and also help the Pelicans get just their second series win in franchise history. In these four games, he put up monster numbers, averaging 33.0 points, 12.0 boards, 1.8 steals, 2.8 blocks and 0.8 treys in 38.8 minutes per outing. After the game, AD said he was excited for the Warriors in the next round because the Dubs swept him back in 2015. He'll see a combination of Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Kevon Looney and more in what should be one of the most fun series in the second round.
Apr 21 - 8:09 PM

Anthony Davis scored 28 points with 11 boards, two assists, three steals, two blocks and no turnovers in 36 minutes during a 119-102 win over the Blazers to take a dominating 3-0 lead in the series on Thursday.

He did have to go to the locker room at the end of the first quarter because of a minor left thumb injury, but returned for his normal playing time -- he checked out with 7:05 in the fourth thanks to garbage time. Davis did also take a shot to his right side near the basket, but he stayed in the game to shoot the free throws. The Pelicans have some important pieces around AD and their perimeter defense has made The Brow even more valuable as a rim protector. We might get a long series against the Warriors in the second round, assuming the Pelicans win just one more game in their series with the Blazers. Game 4 is at New Orleans on Saturday.
Apr 19 - 11:35 PM

Anthony Davis hit 9-of-18 shots and a 3-pointer for 22 points, 13 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Tuesday's Game 2 win at Portland.

The Pelicans now hold a 2-0 lead after stealing two in Portland and while AD didn't even score in the fourth quarter in a close game, he played very well tonight and helped his team win the game. Davis scored 35 with 14 rebounds, two steals and four blocks in Game 1 and a similar performance should be coming in Thursday's Game 3 in New Orleans.
Apr 18 - 1:24 AM

Anthony Davis scored 35 points with 14 rebounds, one assist, two steals and four blocks in 41 minutes during a thrilling 97-95 win over the Blazers on Saturday.

In his sixth season, Davis finally earns his first postseason victory. He terrorized the Blazers on defense and the Blazers couldn't stop him on the other end. Davis also took 10 shots outside of the paint and was able to keep his fouls down early. He's gone off basically every night and now he'll be getting 40 minutes per game. He'll probably be dropping a 40-point game in this series.
Apr 15 - 1:14 AM

Anthony Davis put up another monster game during a 122-98 win over the Spurs on Wednesday, scoring 22 points with 15 boards, one assist, three steals and four blocks in 35 minutes.

That's a wrap for the new fantasy MVP from this season. AD said he will be going into a Westbrook-like mode since DeMarcus Cousins went down, and he wasn't kidding as the league's MVP if we're going off just February to April. For the second year in a row, Anthony "Locker Room" Davis played in 75 games despite a ridiculous amount of minor injuries. He finishes with 28.1 points, 11.1 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.6 blocks. He'll be going No. 1 in just about all drafts next year.
Apr 11 - 11:14 PM

Anthony Davis hit 11-of-22 shots for 28 points, six rebounds, two assists, two steals and five blocks in 35 minutes of Monday's easy win over the Clippers, securing a playoff spot for the Pelicans in the postseason for the second time in AD's career.

Davis was great, as usual, but ran to the locker room in the third quarter, later returned, and then took a couple shots to the face before finally exiting with the game in control in the fourth quarter. The Pels are in, but playoff seeding is still not set in the West. Davis has been a beast all season, but we can add another trip to the locker room to his resume and we're guessing he's the career leader in that category. We don't know if AD will play on Wednesday, as the Pelicans simply have to have him healthy for the playoffs, but at least he got out of tonight's game in one piece. They play the Spurs on Wednesday, who will likely be resting the starters, and the Pelicans still have a shot at the No. 4 seed, so chances are he'll be out there on Wednesday.
Apr 10 - 12:48 AM

Anthony Davis did his thing during a 126-120 win at Golden State on Saturday, scoring 34 points with 12 boards, four assists, two steals and four blocks in 40 minutes.

He blocked Quinn Cook on the last play of the game to make this line even sweeter. James Harden will be winning MVP this year, but all fantasy owners know that The Brow is the fantasy MVP and it's not close at all. Since the break and even before this gem, AD averaged 30.2 points, 12.0 boards, 2.1 dimes, 1.9 steals, 3.5 boards and 0.7 treys on 52.4 FG% and 86.8 FT% over his previous 22. He's almost twice as valuable as anyone else in fantasy and he will be on a lot of title teams. The Pelicans also needed this win with the Spurs, Thunder, Wolves, Jazz and Nuggets all winning their last game.
Apr 7 - 11:19 PM

Anthony Davis posted 33 points across 34 minutes in Friday's 122-103 road victory against the Suns.

Davis also finished with 11 rebounds, three assists, three blocked shots and two steals while hitting 11-of-23 from the field, including 2-of-4 from behind the 3-point line. He and Nikola Mirotic rolled up big numbers to power the Suns to the road win, moving them into the fifth spot in the Western Conference with just three games remaining.
