DALLAS: The Mavericks will have to overachieve to avoid missing the playoffs in a second straight season for the first time since their abysmal decade of 1990s was wrapping up. They need a big contribution from center Nerlens Noel, who will come off the bench because of the way the roster is constructed and has plenty to prove after failing to get long-term deal and settling for $4.1 million qualifying offer as restricted free agent. Harrison Barnes' continuing development as a go-to scorer can help make things more enjoyable for Dirk Nowitzki, who joins Kobe Bryant as the only players with 20 seasons for one franchise. The key to the team's success could ultimately hinge on Dennis Smith Jr., who was taken ninth overall, the highest draft position for Mavericks since getting Nowitzki in 1998. Already touted by head coach Rick Carlisle as a point guard with skills the Mavericks have never had at that position, Smith will have to assimilate to the NBA game quickly for this team to be competitive. He turns 20 in November.
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.
Pelicans start endurance test against Mavericks

NEW ORLEANS -- So now the fun begins and the oxygen masks rev up for the New Orleans Pelicans.

Because their Feb. 7 game against the Indiana Pacers was postponed due to a leaky roof at the Smoothie Kings Center and rescheduled for Wednesday night, the Pelicans (40-30) face the rare challenge of playing three games in three nights, opening Tuesday night against the Dallas Mavericks (22-48).

After hosting the Pacers on Wednesday, the Pelicans will conclude their three-day fitness test with a home game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday.

With 12 games left and the Western Conference playoffs on the line, the Pelicans, coming off a 108-89 victory on Sunday over the short-handed Boston Celtics, realize that every game down the stretch becomes more critical. That victory snapped a string of four losses in five games for New Orleans.

"I think it is good for us because it was a good bounce-back game," said forward Anthony Davis, who had 34 points and 11 rebounds in the win over Boston. "You know, it was a tough one last night (a 107-101 loss to Houston) and then we come in (against) the No. 1 defensive team and score on them and then hold them to what they had, under 100. So it was good for us to kind of bounce back."

The Pelicans held the Celtics to their lowest point total of the season and also limited Boston to a season-low 13 points in the fourth quarter. One of the highlights was the play of second-year forward Cheick Diallo, who continues to merit extra playing time by running the court and also blocking shots effectively.

The second-round pick out of Kansas in 2016 was a raw, athletic talent when the Pelicans drafted him, and his season-high 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting against Boston indicated he could have a promising future. Diallo even sparked the crowd with some fiery hand gestures after several layups. He added six rebounds.

Diallo is averaging 6.8 points and 4.9 rebounds per game since Jan. 30 while shooting 58 percent from the floor.

"It's a lot different now, because at the beginning of the season, I was not playing, so it's kind of frustrating," Diallo said. "To me, I feel like I'm growing as a player right now, defensively and offensively."

"He did a great job," Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. "When we were struggling a little bit, he gave us a big boost energy-wise. Just his running in our offense opened up everything. He did a great job of rim-running."

Davis has taken notice of the young forward who is trying to pattern his game after his All-Star "big brother."

"He's playing well," Davis said of Diallo. "He's coming in with a lot of energy. He plays hard. He plays well for us, so he just wants to come in and help the team any way possible, whether defensively or offensively."

The Pelicans have won two of three meetings with Dallas this season, both on the road, but losing 128-120 at home on Dec. 29 when the Mavericks were blistering from long range, making 22 of 39 3-point attempts (.564).

In three games this season against Dallas, Davis has averaged 28.7 points on .517 shooting, 10.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.0 blocks. Guard Jrue Holiday has averaged 19.7 points on .500 shooting and 6.0 assists.

The Mavericks lost 114-106 on Saturday at Brooklyn, their third loss in four games.

While 11 of the last 15 games against New Orleans have been decided by fewer than 10 points, Dallas will miss guard Dennis Smith Jr., who sprained his left ankle after scoring 21 points in 23 minutes. X-rays were negative, but he will not the Pelicans.

"We probably dodged a bullet," Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said.

"I'm trusting their decision," Smith said. "I don't want to make anything worse. That's how I messed my knee up (in high school). So I'm trusting them."
