The Pelicans return home to face the Memphis Grizzlies at 6 p.m. on Saturday night in the Smoothie King Center. Here are three things to know:
1) MILESTONE MINUTE
Anthony Davis is 51 rebounds shy of tying David West's franchise record for rebounds with New Orleans (3,853). Davis is also just 180 points shy of tying West's all-time scoring record (8,690) in franchise history.
2) SULKING IN MEMPHIS
Despite the Grizzlies getting off to their worst start this decade, they’ve managed to rack up a pair of victories against the Pelicans, who have their best midseason record since 2010-11. Both games were in the FedEx Forum, with Memphis winning 103-91 on opening night, and 105-102 on Jan. 10.
3) DO IT BIG
Davis and DeMarcus Cousins are the first pair of All Stars to represent New Orleans together in nearly a decade. Chris Paul and West played together in 2008 and 2009, following in the footsteps of Baron Davis and Jamaal Magloire in 2004, who were the first in franchise history to achieve it.
