Draymond Green thinks Anthony Davis could edge out James Harden for MVP

Draymond Green Anthony Davis could win MVP over James Harden

They'll likely have to try and set their franchise record for a win streak tonight without Anthony Davis, who left Wednesday's game with an ankle injury and is doubtful tonight.

After Friday's contest, the Pelicans host the Jazz Sunday afternoon and Hornets Tuesday night. He's scored at least 40 points in five of those 10 outings. As of now, it seems as if this year's honor is still Harden's to lose - he leads the National Basketball Association in player efficiency rating at 30.21, while Davis is second at 28.90 and LeBron James is third at 28.19 - but Green says Davis is making his case. After hurting his ankle against the Kings, Davis' x-rays came back negative, but he is still listed as questionable for this game.

Suggestions throughout the National Basketball Association stratosphere pointing to the Pelicans to blow it up by trading their franchise cornerstone Anthony Davis.

Houston now owns the best record in the National Basketball Association at 51-13 and is on a league-high 17-game winning streak. "We've just got to slow them down and get two road wins".

Jrue Holiday vs Bradley Beal - These guys are theoretically the second ball-handling options on their team, but both have been doing more than enough facilitating of late. Davis has been unbelievable in the box score department giving him Player of the Month honors for his February performances, averaging 35 points, 13 rebounds, 2.45 steals and 2.18 blocks.

In games where they hold opponents under 100 points, New Orleans is 8-1 and Washington is 17-3.

More impressively, he's averaged 35.6 points, 13.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 3.1 blocks and 2.8 steals during the Pelicans' winning streak, including a 53-point outburst against the Phoenix Suns on February 26 that led to a Western Conference Player of the Week nod.

Without Davis and center DeMarcus Cousins, the Pelicans will have lean heavily on recently acquired center Emeka Okafor and on forwards Nikola Mirotic and Cheick Diallo, who have been major contributors during the streak.

The second quarter did not get any better for the Kings as the Pelicans continued to stomp on the accelerator.
