I just want to win, man. That’s the biggest thing for me. All the All-Star selections and gold medals are fine — I definitely want to win another gold medal. But for my team, I want to win.

— Anthony Davis

Me playing well and us losing doesn’t mean anything. I want to win, so I don’t care about having two points, four points or 30 points. As long as we win, that’s all that really matters.

— Pelicans Forward Anthony Davis

We still have a long way to go, but I thought it was encouraging to see the effort that was there tonight. We played unselfishly and I thought we did a good job of making the extra pass and finding a shooter that was open and all of that was real positive. We will look at the tape pull some stuff off and look at it and then we’ll try to improve on the areas where we need the most improvement and we will try to get better with the execution part.

When people talk about the greatest ever, I want to be in that conversation. I’m nowhere close to it. But it’s where I want to go.

If I keep working hard, playing hard and doing what I have to do, making my team win and do what the coaches want me to do, do what the veterans want me to do, I think the sky is the limit. But I have to always stay humble.

— Pelicans Forward Anthony Davis

I think we did great. Everybody played hard and played unselfish. There are a couple things that we have to clean up but for the most part I like the way we looked out there.

I’m just excited for our group, whoever’s on the court can make plays and go out there and be an asset. We are going to shock a lot of people, it’s going to be fun.— Pelicans Guard Langston Galloway, winning against the Mavericks
