Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins seek to shutdown Karl-Anthony Towns again

Despite the loss, the New Orleans Pelicans did several good things in their last meeting against the Minnesota Timberwolves. In addition to stopping KAT, they forced a bunch of turnovers, rendered Jeff Teague ineffective and had a 20-10 fast break advantage. What'll be in store tonight?
