3)      Watch our Road Trip Preview of Pelicans-Bucks, hosted by Daniel Sallerson.

4)      Read more on how Anthony Davis has put together the best four-game stretch of his NBA career.

5)      On a light five-game Sunday around the NBA, the Pelicans can move up as a high as sixth place (from their current spot of eighth) with a win and a Denver (33-26) loss this evening vs. Houston. A Sunday win by New Orleans guarantees that it will at least be in seventh place Monday morning, because idle Oklahoma City (34-27) would drop to No. 7. The Pelicans have already sealed the tiebreaker on the Thunder based on a season-series clinch.
