After an epic performance, Davis and the Pelicans were the center of attention on Sunday night.

New Orleans Pelicans
Anthony Davis will the the task of trying to follow up a 59 point, 20 rebound performance here in this one on Tuesday night.
Davis shot a spectacular 24 of 34 from the field as he has put in back to back stellar games. In the Pelicans first game out of the break, Davis had 34 against the 76ers.
Davis playing at such a high level comes at the best time as New Orleans continues their push up the Western Conference. Currently, the Pelicans sit in 11th place, 5.5 games off the pace. New Orleans knows they’ll have to string together some winning streaks and so far, they’ve won 4 of their last 5 and 2 straight.
Overshadowed by Davis has been PG Jrue Holiday. Off the bench, Holiday as averaged 22 points and 10.5 assists over the past 2 wins. It’s play like this from the bench that will certainly help the Pelicans here in the 2nd half.
The Wizards, like New Orleans, are trying to make a push at the playoffs.
Washington sits 10th in the East, 3.5 games behind Chicago for that 8th spot. The Wizards however did not have any sort of spectacular performances from one of their players in their most recent outing, as they fell 114-94 to Miami on Saturday.
Washington was absolutely dominated in the paint as they saw Hassan Whiteside go for 25 and 23 in the loss. Look for Davis to certainly try establish similar ground inside, as Washington’s paint defense has been horrendous this season.
John Wall will look for a bounce back game as he looked fatigued in the loss to Miami. Wall shot just 5 of 17 from the floor as the Wizards had an extra game thrown at them right out of the break as part of the makeup game from the winter storm earlier this season.

Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
These are certainly the types of games both teams need to win in the 2nd half. They’ll have to beat up on the weaker competition and then steal games they’re not supposed to if they hope to make a push here.
Give the edge to New Orleans here as the visitors have played much more consistently, while the Wizards look like they’ve hit a wall with their schedule.
Davis probably won’t have another epic night like Sunday, but he will be able to control the paint in a game where New Orleans comes out on top.
