With AP Photos.Otto Porter Jr. scored 19 points and the Washington Wizards cruised to a 116-97 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans, who couldn't overcome the absence of All-Star Anthony Davis and had their 10-game winning streak snapped. He is listed as doubtful for Friday night after an MRI on Thursday. While Holiday has been excellent and Mirotic has been a welcome addition, without Davis the Pelicans would have dropped out of the playoff race after DeMarcus Cousins' injury.
Over this nine-game win streak, the Pelicans' offensive rating has shot up 111.7 points per 100 possessions entering Wednesday, and the 126.1 points they've been averaging over that same stretch is by far the top mark in the league.
"I think it'll be a great atmosphere", said Keith Wunderlich.

It will be a matchup of contrasting styles as the fast-breaking Pelicans (ranked second in the National Basketball Association in possessions per game) will look to push the more grind-it-out Wizards (17th in possessions per game).

"I feel fine but they'll have the team doctor look at it tomorrow and go from there", Davis said.
The Wizards are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall. Fact is, the Pelicans, with Davis on the floor, have been nearly exactly the same offensive team with or without Cousins all year long - 108.4 points per 100 possessions with him, 108.1 points without him entering Wednesday, per NBA.com. "It's been fun. Those guys have been fantastic". Both Davis and coach Alvin Gentry downplayed the severity of the injury after the game.
The Pelicans (38-27) continue this 3-game home-stand Sunday when they host the Jazz at 3:00 p.m. "We didn't get into that flow where he can catch the ball and do some things with it". "(The Pelicans) are a hot team right now. To this point, New Orleans is 3-3 this season without Davis in the lineup. "We've just got to slow them down and get two road wins".
