As promised, Pelicans coach Monty Williams gathered his players for a meeting on Wednesday.

Williams issued objectives that he wants carried out for the remainder of the season. Perhaps, it didn’t come as a surprise that getting the ball more to star forward Anthony Davis is at the top of the list.

Williams wasn’t happy after the game, saying they are going to have a session on Wednesday where they have to be honest about who they are and what they have to do to win games.

”Anthony (Davis) cannot be in a game and not touch the ball,”Williams said after his meeting with players. ”We have to have an effort to get him at least 20 shots every night. ”And that’s on me too. As much as I draw up plays for him, run the offense through him, the guys on the floor has to know it. When they don’t do it, I’ve got to make sure they get him the ball. Because he’s not a selfish player, he’s going to make the right plays. And our guys know that.”
