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.
