(AP) DeMarcus Cousins had 21 points and 12 rebounds, and Golden State beat New Orleans 112-103 in a game in which Warriors guard Stephen Curry left with a mild foot sprain.
The Warriors announced that Curry, who played the first nine minutes of the game, was held out the rest of the night as a precaution.
The game also likely marked the end of the Anthony Davis era in New Orleans. The disgruntled All-Star missed his seventh straight game with what the team has officially listed as back spasms.
Damion Lee matched his career high with 20 points for Golden State. Former Pelican Quinn Cook scored 19 points.
Christian Wood had 26 points and 12 rebounds for the Pelicans, who lost 13 of their last 16 games. Jahlil Okafor scored 30 points and Ian Clark 20 for New Orleans.
