Pelicans' Davis, Cole explore Alcatraz after big Game 1 performances

Anthony Davis and Norris Cole spent their Sunday afternoon off in the Bay Area Sunday exploring Alcatraz after the Pelicans team practice at the University of San Francisco.

It was a family outing for Davis, who was accompanied by his father Anthony Sr, his mother Erainer and older sister Iesha, who lives with Davis in New Orleans.


Davis and Cole both earned an afternoon off, after their performances against the Golden State Warriors in a narrow loss during Game 1.

Anthony Davis had a playoff debut for the ages Saturday. The 22-year-old overcame a slow start to end the game as only the fourth player in the last three decades to go for at least 30 points, five rebounds, and two blocks his first time out under the postseason lights.
