(WVUE) -

Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins combined for 71-points and 19-rebounds and it still wasn't enough to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Pelicans lost their home finale to the Denver Nuggets 134-131 and with the loss came an 'official' end to their playoff run.

Cousins had a late three-pointer to tie the game at 131-apiece and they had a chance to win it late. But, a pair of turnovers by point guard Jrue Holiday sealed the Pels fate.

Meanwhile, Danilo Gallinari scored 28 points and teammate Gary Harris added 23 as the Nuggets closed the gap on Portland for the eighth and final playoff spot. The Pelicans and Nuggets will meet again, Friday night in the Mile High city.

The Pelicans finished the season 21-and-20 at home.

    The time has come for my third and final mock draft. Free agency is mostly complete and while the Saints still have some needs they will remain committed to their ‘best player’ approach. Here’s my best guess on how things shake out. Round One (27th) Mike Gesicki, Tight End Penn St. First things first, I really wanted cornerback Josh Jackson with this selection. I just don’t think he is going to be around at 27. If he is available, then the Saints sh...more>>
