Minus Cousins, Pelicans top Nuggets 115-90 behind Davis' 31

DENVER (AP) A rousing defensive effort helped the New Orleans Pelicans boost their flickering playoff hopes.

Anthony Davis had 31 points and 15 rebounds, helping to compensate for the absence of injured DeMarcus Cousins, and New Orleans beat the Denver Nuggets 115-90 on Sunday night.

"Offensively, we did a really great job of moving the basketball," Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. "But the defense won the game, let's tell it like it is. We were great defensively."
