Anthony Davis (adductor) remains out for Pelicans on Wednesday night

Anthony Davis (adductor) remains out for Pelicans on Wednesday night”

Jrue Holiday scored 27 points and E'Twaun Moore had 14 for New Orleans, which shot 53.5 percent and was playing without Anthony Davis for the third straight game.

What a difference 48-hours made for DeMarcus Cousins! He missed Saturday's victory in Portland and Monday's home defeat to Golden State.

It's unclear exactly how long Davis will be sidelined, but he was seen doing individual warmups the past few days, able to drive to the basket and rise for dunks. He is listed as day-to-day for Wednesday, but he said Monday he was still experiencing sharp pain in his left groin area when making lateral cuts. "We came in at half and said the first team to play a little bit of defense is going to be the team to win the game". "If there was any chance he could play, he would play". The Nuggets have covered the spread in five of their last six trips to New Orleans and are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games versus the Pelicans overall.

The Suns listed him out for two-to-three weeks while he recovers. We'll just work him out, rehab him and see where he is every day. In their last matchup, the young and spry Nuggets blew New Orleans straight out of the water, winning the November 17th contest 146-114.

Both teams exchanged offensive punches throughout the first half, each shooting better than 50 percent from the floor in a contest that resembled a playground pickup game at the playground as much as it did an National Basketball Association competition.

Gary Harris had a team-high 24 points for the Nuggets, but only six points came after intermission. But the Pelicans' lead grew to as many as 20 points in the final 12 minutes.

"Jameer is one of the reasons we can do that", Gentry said. "Because I think what happens sometimes is if you're isolated, you start to feel like you're on an island by yourself and that's a lonely feeling". When asked about Davis' status, coach Alvin Gentry replied, "I would say that he's out".

It's no surprise to Nuggets' coach Mike Malone, who said he spent time with Nelson in New Orleans on Tuesday and considers him a friend, even though he released the guard in October.

"Jameer was an impactful player for us past year as we made a playoff push and he was our starter", Malone said. "He's a leader on and off the court and he makes everyone around him better".

The Nuggets did not have Nikola Jokic and Paul Millsap.

The Nuggets have been world beaters at home (10-2), but not on the road (3-8). "He's definitely getting better", he said. "I try to go out of my way to do things the right way, and I felt most of it was instigated from the other end".

"In the first half we kind of got sucked into playing their style of play, just trying to outscore one another", Cousins said.
