    JORDAN Crawford and rookie Cheick Diallo showed the way for a New Orleans side that was without Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, leading the Pelicans to a 103-100 victory over the Trail Blazers on Wednesday in Portland (Thursday, Manila time).

    The Pelicans ended a five-game skid and wound up with a 34-48 win-loss record.

    Crawford scored 15 on 6 of 12 shooting, while Diallo had a double-double of 12 points and 16 rebounds.

    The Trail Blazers, who have earlier secured the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference standings, rested Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum and saw their win streak end at three for a 41-41 record.

    Shabazz Napier scored 25, while Pat Connaughton came off the bench to deliver 19 points for the Blazers.

    Portland takes on the Golden State Warriors in the first round of the playoffs.
