Powered by Anthony Davis, the Pelicans are unsafe

Wednesday's 114-101 win over the Sacramento Kings put the exclamation point on a flawless four-game Western Conference road trip and officially tied the longest winning streak in franchise history.

"Every time you twist an ankle it hurts, especially when you're coming down on somebody's foot because you really don't have any protection".

The Pelicans (38-26) have been doing just that during their winning streak, averaging 124.9 points per game.

Davis went down after battling Kosta Koufos for a rebound. That said, if he's out as expected, Nikola Mirotic, Cheick Diallo and Emeka Okafor should see the majority of the team's frontcourt minutes. When All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins went down against the Houston Rockets on January 26, the playoffs were looking to be nothing but a slim chance. Sometimes we have to take tough shots because it's part of the game, but we've been trying to have a good selection of shots and find the guy who is hot at that moment.

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. He left early in the first quarter due to lower back stiffness. "We've got to also play smart". Holiday later scored eight consecutive points and Davis added a late three-point play to help the Pelicans take a 62-44 halftime lead.

Ever since Endymion rolled through the streets of New Orleans, the Pelicans have been winners. "Now it seems that I did get my rhythm". They have won four times in overtime during this stretch, and their ability to get it done down the stretch may be what earns them a playoff spot.

Pelicans: New Orleans has won seven straight road games, one shy of the franchise record set in 2007-08.
