SAN ANTONIO: The Spurs are essentially the same team that won the Southwest Division last season and led Golden State by 21 points in Game 1 of the Western finals before Kawhi Leonard was lost for the postseason to an ankle injury. A 21st straight postseason appearance is practically a given and it is hard not to imagine them remaining among the best teams in a loaded conference. The team will need another year of growth from Leonard after their quiet MVP candidate set career highs in scoring and assists while earning All-NBA first team and All-Defensive first team honors. Leonard's growth could come from his ability to distribute the ball more, especially with veteran point guard Tony Parker expected to be out until December while recovering from surgery on a ruptured left quadriceps tendon.
NEW ORLEANS: If Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins mesh well, if Jrue Holiday improves as a scorer, and most importantly, if New Orleans doesn't have more bad luck with injuries, the Pelicans could contend for a Western Conference playoff spot. After two sub-.500 seasons, there will be urgency to do so. Otherwise, the regime of general manager Dell Demps and head coach Alvin Gentry could end and Cousins could walk in free agency. Davis is the key to everything for New Orleans because of his dynamism, which allows him to score from inside and out, run the floor and defend the perimeter as well as block shots in the lane. He might not score as much this season while sharing the ball with Cousins, but he hopes to be more efficient.
Davis needs help as Pelicans host Spurs

NEW ORLEANS -- Due to another superhuman effort by Anthony Davis, the New Orleans Pelicans did just fine playing the final 17 minutes Monday night without DeMarcus Cousins, who was ejected for elbowing Russell Westbrook after grabbing a rebound in a 114-107 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The San Antonio Spurs have cruised to an 11-6 record despite the absence of All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard and point guard Tony Parker, whose quad injuries have kept them out for the first month of the season.

Cousins will return the lineup Wednesday against the Spurs, who won three of four against New Orleans last season. The Pelicans (9-8) hope he will be able to give Davis some breathing room.

Davis played a season-high 44 1/2 minutes against Oklahoma City, including all 24 minutes of the second half. He led New Orleans with 36 points, including an 18-of-22 performance from the foul line, and contributed 15 rebounds and two blocks.

Cousins was ejected after replay officials ruled he was guilty of a flagrant-2 foul by catching Westbrook in the head while swinging his right elbow to protect the ball after a rebound. Cousins left the game with 18 points, nine rebounds and four assists.

On Tuesday after practice, Cousins said his reputation as a brooding player who throws his weight around contributed to the call.

"It's crazy," he said. "When you start playing the game of basketball as a big man, they tell you, 'When you get a rebound, keep your elbows high and out,' you know, to protect the ball from guards coming in stripping.

"All I did was my fundamentals, and I got punished for it."

Cousins playfully suggested he should add league officials to his Christmas card list in order to get the benefit of the doubt that, right now, does not exist for a player who led the NBA with 18 technicals last season.

"I know I'm not (getting calls in my favor)," Cousins said. "I'm DeMarcus. I expect the ejection. It's crazy because they initially called the foul on him. It shows that I was only protecting the ball."

New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry said Cousins did not intentionally throw his elbow.

"I don't think there was anything malicious about what he did at all," Gentry said.

Even without two of their stars, the Spurs are moving in cruise control under coach Gregg Popovich. In a 96-85 home victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday, forward LaMarcus Aldridge posted 22 points and 11 rebounds, and forward Kyle Anderson, starting while Leonard is sidelined, had 13 points, 10 assists and six rebounds.

Anderson has scored in double figures in eight of his 17 starts this season. He did that in only four of 72 games last season in fewer minutes.

"He gets to handle the ball more, and that's his game, too," Spurs guard Manu Ginobili said. "He's playing as a point power forward. He's a tough matchup because of his size and his handles."

The Spurs held Davis mostly in check last season, limiting him to an average of 18.8 points and 9.5 rebounds, below his season averages. Leonard averaged 21.8 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists against New Orleans, and Aldridge pitched in with 17.3 points and 10.0 rebounds per game.
