Pelicans upset Warriors to move into playoff spot

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

It was the Pelicans' biggest win of the season, a 103-100 victory over the NBA's best team, the Golden State Warriors. 

The narrow victory coupled with an Oklahoma City (42-36) loss puts the Pelicans one half of a game ahead of the Thunder in the Western Conference standings.

Anthony Davis scored a game-high 29 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and blocked four shots to lead New Orleans. Golden State's Step Curry tallied 25 points, making five three-pointers.

New Orleans (42-35) will face the Grizzlies in Memphis Wednesday night. There are just five games remaining for the Pelicans.

    Coming in at #18 is old faithful, Zach Strief. Strief will turn 34 this season and remains steady as ever. For the second time in three years, the Saints drafted his replacement with Andrus Peat and now Ryan Ramczyk. Yet, Strief is still here and remains a steady starter. In 2016, Strief started all 16 games at right tackled and has missed just one game in the last three seasons.
