NBA Predictions: Can Wizards end 10-game win streak of Pelicans? 3/9/18

  • Draymond Green Anthony Davis could win MVP over James Harden

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.

After Friday's contest, the Pelicans host the Jazz Sunday afternoon and Hornets Tuesday night.

Markieff Morris hit a critical 3-pointer in overtime to key the victory, but he knows upcoming road games against New Orleans on Friday and Miami on Saturday are important as the Wizards try to position themselves for the playoffs. After hurting his ankle against the Kings, Davis' x-rays came back negative, but he is still listed as questionable for this game.

Despite Davis' recent ailments, he's been phenomenal during the Pelicans' winning streak and he's forced his way into the MVP discussion with the historic performances he's been putting up on nearly a nightly basis.

The health of Davis - This is the single most important factor in this game.

The 2017 Defensive Player of the Year talked up Davis after the Pelicans' latest win, saying he thinks Davis could edge out Houston Rockets superstar James Harden, runner-up for MVP in two of the last three seasons, for the award. The season of Steph's year, Steph was just off the chart. In the17 games since Cousins went down, AD is averaging 33 points and 13 rebounds per game.

Davis is averaging 28.3 points, 11.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.2 blocks this season. The Wiz have beaten the Pelicans in 11 of their last 12 meetings and have only lost to the Pels once since they changed their name for the 2013-14 season. When the sides met earlier in the season, he put up 37 points to go with nine rebounds in 37 minutes of action. The New Orleans Pelicans have split their last six home games.

The second quarter did not get any better for the Kings as the Pelicans continued to stomp on the accelerator. Davis' status will be re-evaluated on a day-to-day basis. 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.
