Damian Lillard texted Anthony Davis, Tim Frazier asking them to beat Nuggets on Sunday

Following the New Orleans Pelicans‘ 25-point beatdown of the Denver Nuggets, it looks like it might have been the result of a little friendly gamesmanship with Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard.

The Rip City star reportedly texted Anthony Davis and former teammate Tim Frazier, asking them both to beat the Nuggets on the road come Sunday.

This text had its desired effect, with the Pelicans getting ahead early and eventually coasting to a 115-90 win, aiding the Blazers into the No. 8 spot in the West’s playoff race.

“They both said, ‘I got you,’ so I guess they’re a man of their word,” Lillard jokingly told Cody Sharrett on NBA.com following the Blazers’ victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Blazers will have their own crack at the Nuggets when they host them on Tuesday at the Moda Center. Portland leads the series 2-1.

“It’s on our home floor, in front of our home crowd, an opportunity to move a game ahead of them, take the tiebreaker outright with them if it comes down to the last game,” Lillard said. “A lot of things on the line in this game … We’re ready for the challenge.

“Now that we’ve gotten here in the driver’s seat, we gotta take it home.”
