Records: Pelicans 15-20, Mavs 21-16

About the Mavs: They are 4-5 on the second night of back-to-backs after getting drilled in San Antonio on Wednesday 112-90. ... This culminates the Mavs’ 10th of 16 back-to-backs this season. ... The Mavs will be playing their fourth game in five days Saturday and beat the Pelicans on Friday in New Orleans. ... Forward Shawn Marion is doubtful with a bruised right shoulder and bruised upper ribs. Marion missed the past two games after suffering an injury during Tuesday’s win over the Lakers.

About the Pelicans: They will again be without forward Ryan Anderson and guard Jrue Holiday, who both missed Friday’s loss. Anderson, the Pelicans’ leading scorer at 19.8 points per game, is out indefinitely with a herniated disk. Holiday is New Orleans’ fourth-leading scorer (14.3 ppg) and leads the team in assists (7.9 apg), but he is out indefinitely with a stress fracture of his right tibia. ... Second-year forward Anthony Davis has an outside shot of making the All-Star game. — Dwain Price
