Davis had 13 points, nine rebounds and a career-high eight blocks, and the New Orleans Pelicans emphatically snapped a three-game skid with a 135-98 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.NEW ORLEANS -- Jimmy Graham didnt hesitate to punctuate a pair of touchdown catches with the goal post-rattling, basketball-style dunks that led the NFL to ban such celebrations coming into this season. Both times, Graham drew penalty flags for unsportsmanlike conduct. With relatively little at stake in preseason game No. 2 on Friday night, the crowd roared its approval, and the Saints went on to beat the Tennessee Titans, 31-24. Saints coach Sean Payton, however, wasnt amused after Grahams second dunk, barking at the star tight end as he came to the sideline. Following the game, Graham fled the locker room without speaking to reporters. Payton, meanwhile, said he was "particularly" upset with Grahams penalties, but also with much of the team after the Saints (2-0) drew 22 flags for 184 yards. "Obviously, that was painful to watch," Payton said. "Its the first sign of a team that has no discipline, and thats the first sign of poor coaching. ... Im very upset." After holding out the entire off-season for his four-year, $40 million contract, Graham appeared to be in fine form with five catches for 48 yards in limited action, including his TDs of 6 and 19 yards from Luke McCown. While Payton lost patience with Grahams insistence upon continuing his post-TD dunks, Grahams teammates appeared conflicted, considering it was a preseason game. "I understand Jimmys frustration with that rule change," veteran right tackle Zach Strief said. "I dont think Jimmy is a selfish player. ... Its selfish in a real game. I dont think Jimmy is like that. I think that was his one opportunity to make it his statement on it." Last year, one such dunk bent a goal post out of place, delaying a regular-season game. "Look, one time in 40 years a goal post gets tilted and all of a sudden we have to change the rules?" Strief said. "People love Jimmy because he gets excited and they love him because he celebrates. The fans love that stuff. And Jimmy is frustrated because theyre taking something away that ... adds entertainment to the game." The penalties after both celebrations were enforced on the kickoff, resulting in returns to the Tennessee 38 and 36 by the Titans Marc Mariani. Tennessee (1-1) scoredd touchdowns on both drives.dddddddddddd There were some developments which pleased Payton. The Saints defence had five turnovers and four sacks. Offensively, New Orleans produced several long gains, including completions of 52 and 44 yards from Ryan Griffin to Joe Morgan, who missed all of last season with a knee injury. "It was encouraging that (Morgan) got behind the defence and was able to make a few plays that weve seen him make prior to his injury," Payton said. The Titans were competitive early when both teams starters were on the field. Starting quarterback Jake Locker was 8 of 11 for 75 yards and a touchdown on a 4-yard touch pass along the sideline to Justin Hunter, who made a leaping grab over cornerback Corey White. "It was great to see the way we came out and started," Locker said. "It was something we can definitely build off of." Hunter also was on the receiving end of Zach Mettenbergers first touchdown pass as a pro. Mettenberger entered the game earlier than expected after second-string QB Charlie Whitehurst was shaken up on a sack by Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro. The crowd cheered the former LSU quarterback when he took the field. "That was a pleasant surprise," Mettenberger said. Mettenberger completed his first series by rifling a pass over the middle to Hunter, who raced off for a 64-yard score. Mettenberger finished 20 of 25 for 269 yards, but was also intercepted once and fumbled once. Hunter had four catches for 111 yards. "We played OK, but we just turned the ball over way too much and ultimately that led to a loss," Mettenberger said. "Offensively we did a lot of good things but weve got a lot to clean up." Undrafted rookie kicker Travis Coons made a 50-yard field goal for Tennessee. One of Tennessees fumbles may have cost more than a turnover. Running back Shonn Greene, who has had right knee surgery twice, appeared to favour his right leg after being stripped by Vaccaro. McCown started for Brees, who missed his second exhibition game while resting his sore abdomen, and was 12 of 20 for 117 yards. Griffin finished 13 of 19 for 179 yards with touchdown passes of 23 yards to Mark Ingram and 3 yards to Seantavious Jones. ' ' 'en-match winning run and miss the chance of reclaiming fourth place from Arsenal, which is one point ahead with four matches remaining. "We wanted to win so much that we stopped being ourselves," Everton manager Roberto Martinez said, "and that is what we have to learn from." Palaces fourth straight win means the side can surely start preparing for another season in the top flight and lends further weight to many pundits argument that Tony Pulis is the manager of the season. When Pulis took over in November, Palace was bottom and six points from safety -- now, it is 11th and 10 points above the relegattion zone.dddddddddddd Sunderland is six points from safety with a game in hand, but could have been a lot closer if goalkeeper Vito Mannone had gathered Nasris shot rather than fumbled it into the back of the net. That could be the difference between staying in the Premier League and being relegated. "Its one more blow," Sunderland manager Gus Poyet said. "I tell you what, Im testing my heart this year." Without the injured David Silva and Yaya Toure and with star striker Sergio Aguero lacking match sharpness, City lacked its usual creativity going forward and was sloppy in possession. Fernandinho gave City the lead in the second minute, running onto a short pass from Aguero that was dummied by Alvaro Negredo and scoring inside Mannones near post, but Sunderland had the better of the chances for the rest of the first half. Connor Wickham finally took one of them in the 73rd minute, volleying in a cross from substitute Emanuele Giaccherini, and the same players combined for Wickhams second that came on the counter-attack in the 83rd. City escaped with a point thanks to Nasri, but Liverpool and Chelsea will be celebrating another twist in the title race. "We believe we can win the title," Fernandinho said. "Chelsea and Liverpool have four games and they may drop some points -- we think we can still win the title." At Goodison Park, Jason Puncheon scored his fourth goal in three games before Scott Dann added a second for Palace for a 2-0 lead after 49 minutes. Substitute Steven Naismith reduced the deficit in the 61st before Palace restored their two-goal advantage through striker Cameron Jerome in the 73rd. Kevin Mirallas scored Evertons second goal in the 86th. ' ' '
