Anthony Davis 'Pretty Confident' DeMarcus Cousins Will Re-Sign With Pelicans

The Pelicans travel to Los Angeles to face the Clippers at 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday night in the Staples Center.

The Pelicans forward and former Kentucky Wildcat has been on a tear over the last month and was named the Western Conference Player of the Month for the month of February.

If Anthony Davis has his way, his frontcourt partnership with DeMarcus Cousins will continue long past this season. In February, Davis averaged 35 points, 13 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 2.2 blocks, ranking first, third, first and second in the National Basketball Association, respectively, to win Western Conference Player of the Month.

Once he returned to the floor in the second half, Davis showed no signs of being slowed by the rib injury. Jrue Holiday filled up with score sheet with 23 points and seven assists.

The Clippers took their first lead of the game at 49-48 on Harris' layup off an alley-oop pass from Williams in the second.

Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry told reporters Davis would get an MRI on Thursday.


But the Pels finally quieted the Kings by making shots when needed as they ended a stretch of 8-of-11 games on the road.

New Orleans led 67-52 at halftime, but the Clippers stormed back and took the lead late in the fourth. Says dad they were to sanity can't play and they struggle against Washington that'd be like man we were up and have a big party to celebrate ten wins in a row. The Rockets' last loss came against the Pelicans, 115-113, on January 26 in New Orleans. Following the break, Davis played 22 of a potential 24 minutes, scored 31 points (on 12-for-20 shooting) and pulled down nine rebounds to hold off a charge from a playoff competitor in the Clippers.

Then on Wednesday he had 17 points, five rebounds, five blocks and two steals in just 23 minutes.

"Well, I think he - you gotta understand, guys, he's willing to sacrifice his body to make a play here and there", Gentry explained.

"We didn't play great from start to finish", said Williams, an 89-percent free-throw shooter who made only 7 of 13 against the Pelicans.
