Anthony Davis returns to Pelicans' lineup after 1-game absence

Anthony Davis returns to Pelicans' lineup after 1-game absence

Davis, who Gentry said Saturday would be a game-time decision, did not play in Friday's 116-97 loss against the Washington Wizards - New Orleans' first defeat since February 9.

He scored 40 or more points five times during New Orleans' recent franchise-record-tying 10-game win streak, including a 53-point outing by Davis.

Jrue Holiday had 18 points and 10 assists for the Pelicans, but missed 12 of 19 shots, turned the ball over four times and struggled defensively against Utah's backcourt tandem of Rubio and Mitchell while guarding each at various points during the game. Gobert recorded his 22nd double-double this season and 10th in 13 games. There are three things the Jazz will have to do if they are going to extend their road win streak to 11 games.

The Pelicans started to build on its lead in the third quarter and went up by nine points midway through the period, but Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell caught fire to put his team up once again. His highlights during that surge included a stumbling reverse layup past Davis as he was fouled by Holiday, which he converted for a three-point play. He capped off his scoring run by drilling a 3-pointer before the buzzer that sent Utah into the fourth holding a 78-74 lead.

Attacking the boards: Utah outrebounded New Orleans, 55-38.

The score was tied on seven different occasions in the second but Holiday's 3-pointer with 4.3 seconds left sent New Orleans into halftime holding a 51-48 advantage. Six of his blocks came in the first half.

Davis, who has now missed seven games to injury this season, joined fellow star DeMarcis Cousins (Achilles, out for season) on the sideline for the loss to the Wizards.

The Pelicans return to action Tuesday at 7 p.m.as they welcome in the Charlotte Hornets.

Jazz: Has won three of four matchups this season.
