There was a lot of concern after the New Orleans Pelicans made their big NBA All Star break trade for DeMarcus Cousins, but it appears some of that concern is getting put to rest. The team is now moving in on a possible place at the Playoff table, but it's not a slam dunk. There's still a lot of work to do, but after an impressive win this week, it's looking better and better.

Here's more from the Louisiana Radio Network:

"The Pelicans are now 3.5 games back for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference after their big 95-82 win over the Grizzlies.

DeMarcus Cousins had his best game since arriving in New Orleans, scoring 41 points hauling in 17 rebounds. The Pels next game is Friday at Houston."
