Pelicans-Nuggets Preview

(AP) -- The New Orleans Pelicans' playoff hopes looked like they might take a hit with Anthony Davis out. Instead, the team has stayed in the thick of the race by continuing to find ways to score.

With Davis and two of the team's other top scorers out again Sunday night, the Pelicans will try for a season-high fifth straight win by taking advantage of the scuffling Denver Nuggets.

Davis has missed the past three games because of a sprained right shoulder, but New Orleans (31-27) has extended its winning streak to four during his absence and shot 51.3 percent or better in the last three. The Pelicans have averaged 102.8 points during that run after scoring 86.3 per game in a season-worst four consecutive defeats.
