Facing the 42-19 Denver Nuggets...in The Mile High City...on the second night of a back-to-back...
Talk about a tall order!
Yet that’s precisely what lies in front of the New Orleans Pelicans tonight, and for those who believe he’s still a net positive, Anthony Davis is going to sit this contest out for rest purposes.
Additionally, Alvin Gentry will be without E’Twaun Moore, who is being given the night off for load management.
However, expect Julius Randle to be ready to step up for the Pelicans and help contain Nikola Jokic. He and his former teammate Isaiah Thomas had a fun exchange a few hours ago on Twitter.

In other news, New Orleans made the Dairis Bertans signing official. According to Jen Hale, we can expect him to suit up for the Pelicans sometime next week.
