The New Orleans Pelicans, thanks to superstar center and MVP candidate Anthony Davis, are fourth in the Western Conference standings and in a good position to return to the National Basketball Association playoffs. Davis has done a lot over the last month, averaging 35.0 points and 10.0 rebounds in February but what he did Tuesday night might be the most impressive. From there, Davis immediately retreated toward the visiting locker room - but he couldn't make it all the way there.
Cousins suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in late January.
Despite the team's success without Cousins, the Pelicans' top offseason priority should be re-signing him, and Davis is "pretty confident" New Orleans will be successful, per the New York Times' Marc Stein.
After he led the New Orleans Pelicans to a 121-116 win with a game-high 41 points, 13 rebounds, three blocks and three steals, Davis revealed a amusing exchange he had with DeMarcus Cousins at halftime.
New Orleans hasn't released a timetable for his return.
Despite the best efforts of Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell, who finished with 27 and 26 points respectively off the Clippers bench, the Pelicans closed out a 121-116 victory thanks to six clutch free throws - four from Ian Clark and two from Davis.
The Pelicans are 10-5 since Cousins went down and go into Wednesday's tilt holding sole possession of the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference standings.
