The red-hot Pelicans visit Sacramento Wednesday night and all eyes will be on MVP-candidate Davis and his ribs as the team tries to knock off the bottom-feeding Kings, who have been big problems for the Pels.

The dread of a midgame locker room trip for All-Star power forward Anthony Davis is all too familiar for the New Orleans Pelicans. He needed X-rays at halftime, but came back and dropped 31 points in the second half and hit a clutch fadeaway jumper to give the Pelicans a two-point cushion with 30 seconds left. "You know, we wish he weren't that way, but you know, he really is".

Mirotic scored 26 points with 10 rebounds, Holiday had 23 points and eight assists, and E'Twaun Moore added 15 points. He nailed threes and finished tough drives. "If I had a shot, I took the shot".

The Kings have to figure out how to make their opponents uncomfortable on offense. Jrue Holiday scored 23 points for the Pelicans.

The Pelicans had a 12-3 run over the final 1:16 to pull out the win.

Gentry was happy to get a road win, but now he's focused about educating his team to flawless its craft with an eye towards qualifying for the playoffs. "I guess that's the most important thing. Then, defensively, because of our offense, we got frustrated and played poorly".

Hield had 20 points while Zach Randolph added 19 points and five rebounds for Sacramento.

Holiday and Mirotic each scored 13 first-half points as New Orleans led 67-52 at the break.

Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry told reporters Davis would get an MRI on Thursday. Says dad they were to sanity can't play and they struggle against Washington that'd be like man we were up and have a big party to celebrate ten wins in a row. "We wish it weren't that way, but he's a guy who's going to do everything to help us win games. We did what we needed to do on the road and now we need to do that at home".

It's remarkable what he has done since DeMarcus Cousins suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. No other player has reached that number more than six times this season.

He left the game after banging bodies with DeAndre Jordan going for a rebound. But he returned to the game later in the period.

The Pelicans host the Wizards Friday night at the Smoothie King Center at 7 p.m.
