Pelicans-Nuggets Preview

(AP) -- The New Orleans Pelicans are scoring as efficiently as any team in the NBA of late.

The Denver Nuggets appear to have finally found some footing on defense, but they'll be tested Friday night when they host New Orleans.

Both teams have won three of four, with the Pelicans (6-4) coming off Tuesday's 106-100 win at Sacramento. Anthony Davis scored 28 and blocked three shots to push his league-leading total to 39 while Ryan Anderson scored 15 of his 22 points in the second half.
