Pistons' Andre Drummond ejected for pushing Pelicans' Tim Frazier

He scored a game-high 33-points and pulled down 14-rebounds in the Pelicans 109-86 win, which snapped a three-game losing streak.

Holiday is shooting just 29.0 percent from the field over the past three games since the Pelicans acquired DeMarcus Cousins.

The NBA's newest version of the Twin Towers gets a fourth chance for a breakthrough win on Friday night at the Smoothie King Center, but it will be a very tall order because the 24-37 Pelicans will host the 46-13 San Antonio Spurs, the team with the second-best record in the NBA, in a nationally televised game.

Drummond also was ejected from the game late in the third quarter, after pushing guard Tim Frazier away. "He's obviously one of the best bigs in the league".

Asked if he was disappointed in his reaction to Frazier's feistiness, Drummond said he was "disappointed our team lost". But the Pistons had few answers for Davis, even when Drummond was in the game.

Yet it was Drummond who was helping keep Detroit in it, with his 10 offensive rebounds and flurry of put-back baskets.

Everyone wants to come here and put their best performance in and Italy did that and we expect the same in two weeks' time. The situation became even more weird when England briefly adopted the same approach at the breakdown in the second half.

"I'm not going to back down from anybody", Frazier said. "That's how I was raised and I had to fight for a lot to get where I am".

It may not have seemed like it at the time, with his team trailing by six and still within striking distance of another second-half comeback, but Andre Drummond's ejection Wednesday night served as the final straw for the Detroit Pistons.

ESPN's Kevin Pelton has the Pelicans finishing 10th in the Western Conference based on a model using RPM data to go along with his personal predictions of how the roster rotations will play out. Detroit coach Stan Van Gundy believes the Davis-Cousins tandem will pay off in the long term for the Pelicans. The Pistons (29-32), looking exhausted after defeating Portland 120-113 in overtime on Tuesday night, missed 14 of 17 free throws.

Detroit did itself in by going 3 for 17 from the foul line and 3 of 23 from beyond the 3-point line. Cunningham and E'Twaun Moore each added 3s soon after, and when Davis hit a short fade as he was fouled, New Orleans went up by 22. "It's two really talented guys", Van Gundy said.

"I would say I was rushing and wasn't focused".

"He's a little hothead", Davis said of Frazier, "so you have to make sure that we don't lose him". Asik was playing only sparingly before his illness.
