The Pelicans travel to Los Angeles to face the Clippers at 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday night in the Staples Center. Here are three things to know:
1) OFTEN AWARDED: Anthony Davis was named Western Conference Player of the Week on Monday, just days after he was named Western Conference Player of the Month for his performance in February. Davis is now the first player in franchise history to win multiple honors in a season since Chris Paul accomplished the feat in 2008-09.
2) CLIPPIN’: The Los Angeles Clippers dealt superstar forward Blake Griffin to Detroit just a day after beating the Pelicans 112-103 on Jan. 28. Since then the Clippers are 9-4, using a re-tooled lineup. The Pelicans are in a similar position, going 9-4 without the injured DeMarcus Cousins and recalibrating their own lineup.
3) JUST JRUE IT: Jrue Holiday has been on a tear during the Pelicans’ eight-game winning streak. The guard has averaged 25.9 points, 7.5 assists while committing just 2.4 turnovers. He’s shooting 55 percent from the field and 40.7 percent from 3-point as well.
