While Anthony Davis and the rest of the Pelicans will spend the next 34 games battling for a playoff spot without their frontcourt tandem in tow, starting against the Clippers at 3 p.m. on Sunday, there are clouds smothering almost every other area of the franchise.

In the final quarter, it looked like the Cavs' luck might have run out as the Pacers fought hard to come back from a 19-point deficit and managing to narrow the Cavs' lead to just five points.

With that said, here are three keys to defeating the Pelicans in NOLA. Kent Bazemore led Atlanta with 26 points.

Walker finished with 29 points on 10-for-22 shooting from the field, including five 3-pointers. The Pelicans played with composure down the stretch on Friday night despite giving up a 21-point lead as the Rockets staged a furious late rally in the battle between two of the hottest teams in the National Basketball Association.

"Thoughts out to [Cousins] - hope you good big fella", James added on Twitter, as Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward - who suffered a gruesome broken leg on the opening night of the season - and a host of other big names also showed support for Cousins. Despite Friday's loss, the Rockets clinched the best winning percentage in the Western Conference through February 4 among teams with eligible coaches.

He played almost 19 minutes per game last year and this year, he leads the Cavaliers in plus-minus.
