The Pelicans are a league-best 6-0 this preseason, coming off Saturday's 93-89 victory over the Wizards in Lexington, Ky., with this their lone home game of the preseason. New Orleans moved into a win-now mode in the offseason, signing free-agent guard Tyreke Evans and trading their first-round pick to the 76ers for point guard Jrue Holiday. Also acquired in the offseason were guard Anthony Morrow and center Greg Stiemsma. The key remains the maturation of 2012 No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis, the former Kentucky forward.
