Timberwolves-Pelicans Preview

(AP) -- The New Orleans Pelicans' margin for error remains thin as they try to reach the postseason for the first time in four years. Tyreke Evans' recent play at point guard and Anthony Davis' continued dominance figures to give them a fighting chance, however.

New Orleans looks to capitalize on Sunday's matchup with the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves to remain in the hunt.

The Pelicans (38-34) snapped a four-game skid with a 102-88 win over Sacramento on Friday and still have a chance, albeit an unlikely one, to catch eighth-place Oklahoma City. They haven't made the playoffs since 2011, though they already have their highest win total since that season.
