Pelicans' Davis set to have MRI Thursday

Jrue Holiday surges into spotlight helping to lead Pelicans to 10-game winning streak

Jrue Holiday surges into spotlight helping to lead Pelicans to 10-game winning streak

Green makes some good points but with Davis spraining his ankle in New Orleans' 114-101 win over Sacramento on Wednesday, he may end up missing some time. The Wizards beat the Pelicans with Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins in the lineup back in December in D.C., but the Wiz will likely face a different looking Pels team tonight, with Cousins out for the season and Davis doubtful for tonight's game with an ankle injury.

Jrue Holiday added 23, Davis scored 17, E'Twaun Moore had 15 and Ian Clark 11 as the Pelicans finished sweeping a four-game road trip to extend the second-longest current win streak in the National Basketball Association. Nikola Mirotic was the game's leading scorer with 26 points on 10-for-12 shooting.

The New Orleans Pelicans (38-26) look to continue their 10-game winning streak against the Washington Wizards (37-28) at Smoothie King Center.

This is the second game of the season between these two teams.

More impressively, he's averaged 35.6 points, 13.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 3.1 blocks and 2.8 steals during the Pelicans' winning streak, including a 53-point outburst against the Phoenix Suns on February 26 that led to a Western Conference Player of the Week nod. The Heat, who the Wizards will play again tomorrow night, are 2.5 games behind the Wizards as they sit in the seventh seed.

According to FOX Sports' Jennifer Hale, Davis was showing significant swelling after the game. X-rays on Davis' left ankle returned negative.

The Jazz band is set to take on Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans - now No. 4 in the West and themselves winners of 10 straight games. The season Steph beat him, Steph was just off the charts. They have won four times in overtime during this stretch, and their ability to get it done down the stretch may be what earns them a playoff spot. Davis has been unbelievable in the box score department giving him Player of the Month honors for his February performances, averaging 35 points, 13 rebounds, 2.45 steals and 2.18 blocks.

Fox averages 11.2 points and a team-high 4.2 assists.

Hield had 20 points while Zach Randolph added 19 points and five rebounds for Sacramento. Holiday has been playing like an All-Star for an extended period, and Mirotic has been very impressive coming off the bench for Alvin Gentry.
