The Pelicans have said they'll try to re-sign Cousins, who technically is now part of his first playoff team in eight National Basketball Association seasons, but who still has yet to play in the postseason because of his Achilles tear in January.
"A lot of people counted us out after the injury to DeMarcus, so this is wonderful", Davis said following Saturday's series-clinching, 131-123 victory over third-seeded Portland. The Pelicans' four best guys were the four best players in the series. "The city's showed me a lot of love, so I couldn't ask for a better place to be".
MIAMI - Ben Simmons had the first playoff triple-double by a rookie in almost 40 years, JJ Redick scored 24 points and the Philadelphia 76ers outlasted the Miami Heat to move within a victory of the second round. Prior to this year, he had made the playoffs just once in five tries, and he had failed to win a single game in his only postseason appearance thanks to a sweep by the Warriors in 2015.
With his team sent home earlier than expected, Stotts now must await his fate. He averaged 30 PPG, 12 RPG and 2.8 BPG for the series, shooting 47 FG% and posting a +43 in 155 minutes. They've found the winning formula between the incredible one-on-one ability of Davis and Holiday, the pace-pushing, distributing talents of Rajon Rondo, and a spread-the-floor shooting attack led by Nikola Mirotic.
It's not official yet, but we're just going to assume that the Pelicans will face Golden State in the next round.
"We were able to come together as a team that plays for one another".
Just about all the New Orleans players have scored with that type of ease because of the squad's excellent ball movement that kept Portland on its heels all series. Mirotic has averaged 21.6 points, 11.6 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.6 steals per game.
The Blazers have lost 10 straight playoff games.
"It's nothing but a blessing", Holiday said afterward.
"But we had a great season". Golden State thrives in small-ball situations, and while Green can't stop Davis, he'll make him work while the Warriors have the opportunity to jack up the pace and launch 3-pointers until New Orleans begs for mercy.
And that's been the Blazers' problem all season: They don't have a consistent third option when Dame and CJ aren't providing enough offensive firepower. Lillard and C.J. McCollum didn't play like stars, starting center Jusuf Nurkic struggled to stay on the court and high-priced supporting players like Evan Turner, Moe Harkless and Meyers Leonard had little to no impact.
Stotts has been Portland's head coach since the 2012-13 season. This wasn't a garden-variety first-round loss, but a thorough defeat in which the Blazers were outcoached and outplayed.
"One thing that may help, it's no jabs or anything, but building the identity outside of our two strong scorers", Turned stated.
Perhaps even the Pelicans next-round opponents will be happy for Davis. For years, he seemed paralyzed in purgatory, fighting unwinnable battles by himself.
