The five-time All-Star winced and grabbed at his ankle before slowly getting to his feet.

"Hopefully this ankle's feeling better by tomorrow and we'll see how it goes", he said. To this point, New Orleans is 3-3 this season without Davis in the lineup.

Even though Wizards guard John Wall is still sidelined while rehabbing a left knee injury, Washington (37-28) has given the Pelicans fits in recent years, winning 11 of the last 12 games. "We'll see how everything is (Sunday) and we'll make a decision based on that". "I really don't. It's a sprained ankle".

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said after the loss that he wants to see how Davis looks at Saturday's practice, but his assumption is that the forward will be able to go against Utah. The Pelicans are playing at a pace that conjures images of 1990 Loyola Marymount, running and gunning like they were shot out of a cannon.

"We've been an up-and-down team at home - we've been a better road team", Davis said. Eight of the Pelicans' next nine games unfold in New Orleans, including matchups against six opponents with winning records.

It was over when Washington's Bradley Beal drained a left-wing three-pointer on a fast break, giving Washington a 75-50 lead with 2:57 remaining in the third quarter.

During their last five games, the Pelicans have scored an average of 121.4 points per game (8.9 above their season average) and allowed an average of 111.6 points per game (0.1 above their season average).

The Wizards took an early lead with a 15-point halftime advantage.

New Orleans ranks second in points in the paint per game (51.2) while Washington ranks 22nd (42.2). They can both shoot, so the floor isn't as clogged as you might think it would be with a pair of bigs like that, but it's not as spaced as it could be either. "Now it seems that I did get my rhythm". The only New Orleans starter to crack double digits in scoring was Rajon Rondo, who netted 11 points.

"It's a fight for every spot (in the Western Conference playoffs) from (seeds) three to 10", Gentry said. "They said it's nearly sold out and the winning streak so it's got to be exciting for anybody". The Washington Wizards have won four straight road games.

"We need that out of him", Beal said.
