Anthony Davis 'pretty confident' DeMarcus Cousins will re-sign with Pelicans

New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis left dunks as Los Angeles Clippers guard Milos Teodosic looks on during the first half of an NBA basketball game Tuesday

The New Orleans Pelicans are on fire right now and the team extended its winning streak to nine games with a 121-116 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday evening.

In the second quarter, Davis was banging down low for position with Jordan after his teammate, Jrue Holiday, put up a shot. Davis immediately showed signs of discomfort after the collision.

From there, though, Davis emerged for the second half and he was absolutely electric. Still, the way that Davis is playing in his absence lends credence to the notion that New Orleans could be rather risky if and when Cousins both re-signs and returns to full strength. It's remarkable what he has done since DeMarcus Cousins suffered a season-ending Achilles injury.

Moreno recycles her 1962 Oscars gown at the 2018 Oscars
While some may say wearing a red carpet gown twice is a major fashion faux pas, Rita Moreno totally just debunked that notion. But if you first wore that dress when you won an Oscar in 1962, then rewore it again in 2018, it's iconic.

After he led the New Orleans Pelicans to a 121-116 win with a game-high 41 points, 13 rebounds, three blocks and three steals, Davis revealed a amusing exchange he had with DeMarcus Cousins at halftime.

New Orleans was close to offering Boogie a five-year, $175 max contract, but they will have to think twice as he will only be a few months into his recovery. But that lead evaporated at the hands of Davis, who hit three straight shots to flip a 113-109 deficit into a 115-113 lead with 31 seconds remaining.

The Pelicans are 10-5 since Cousins went down and go into Wednesday's tilt holding sole possession of the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference standings.
