Clippers-Pelicans Preview

(AP) -- The New Orleans Pelicans were closing fast on the final playoff spot in the Western Conference before losing more than just their longest winning streak of the season.

However, Anthony Davis could return from a mild groin strain for a matchup with fellow All-Star Blake Griffin on Friday night as the Pelicans try to bounce back and deny the visiting Los Angeles Clippers a seventh straight victory.

After missing three games with a toe injury, Davis returned to average 27.5 points and 3.3 steals as New Orleans (24-22) won a season-high four straight to get within 1 1/2 games of eighth-place Phoenix.
