  • Utah Jazz-Pelicans: Keys to winning the series matchup against the Pels

Davis had 25 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high 10 blocks in his return from a sprained left ankle that sidelined him for one game, but he had to spend the rest of his 25th birthday ruing New Orleans' second straight loss.

The Jazz (37-30) were led by Ricky Rubio who tallied a game-high 30 points to go along with 10 rebounds.

The New Orleans Pelicans saw their franchise record-tying win streak end at 10 Friday night against the Washington Wizards, but they can start a new streak on Sunday against the Utah Jazz. The Pelicans subbed out Davis and Jrue Holiday shortly thereafter.

Rubio kept the Jazz afloat in a poor-shooting first half, spraying in midrange jumpers and finishing with his second-straight double-double with 30 points and 10 rebounds. He capped off his scoring run by drilling a 3-pointer before the buzzer that sent Utah into the fourth holding a 78-74 lead.

The 21-year-old had only two points going into halftime, but he closed the period by scoring 15 points over the final three minutes with several sensational plays along the way.

New Orleans still had hope after E'Twaun Moore's transition layup as he was fouled pulled the Pelicans to 104-97 with 3:10 left, but New Orleans managed only two more points as Utah pulled away. On a previous possession New Orleans had a chance to cut a nine-point deficit to six, but misfired on a three-point attempt. Utah finished with a 55-38 rebounding advantage. Six of his blocks came in the first half.

Just a few days ago, the matchup versus the New Orleans Pelicans loomed large.

Attendance: The announced attendance was 18,062 (sellout).
