The Pelicans are actually closer to having home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs (they're 2½ games behind the for fourth) than missing them altogether. Using his 30-pound weight advantage, Cousins often overpowered Houston center, including a crucial putback while drawing a foul with 15 seconds remaining.
There's no overstating Cousins' central role in the Pelicans' surprisingly strong season and there should be no overstating how dramatically his absence will negatively impact his team's fortunes.
The Pelicans aren't throwing in the towel on the season just yet.
Cousins and Davis played for him at Kentucky and this season, the Pelicans have been UK-friendly with the signings of former Wildcats Rondo, Darius Miller and DeAndre Liggins.
Anthony Davis added 27 points for the Pelicans.
As for the Pelicans, they'll be hard-pressed to deal for help replacing Cousins at the deadline due to their cap situation.

The opposition is divided by different criteria that have emerged in recent months on way forward to deal with government. Its most popular leaders are nearly all sidelined from politics - jailed, in exile, or barred from holding office.
After six-plus seasons toiling for depressing and hopeless lottery-bound teams in Sacramento, Cousins' individual success was finally translating to team success. Even if they make the playoffs, this feels like a lost season. New Orleans continued its best stretch of 2017-18 on Friday, posting a hard-fought victory over the Rockets on national TV, giving the Pelicans a season-high four-game winning streak. All now hang in the balance in New Orleans.
But, more importantly, will it be Demps' decision to make?
The situation will complicate his contract talks because he is set to be a free-agent next season [VIDEO]. His injury complicates matters.
Players from around the league are reaching out with their support, including the star of the Pelicans most recent opponent, the Rocket's James Harden, and retired National Basketball Association legend Kobe Bryant.
Davis made a free throw and DeAndre Liggins added a 3-pointer to give New Orleans a 100-92 lead. All four won MVP. "We've just got to make sure we're locked in".
And for Pelicans' Center DeMarcus Cousins, news just broke that he may have suffered one of the worst sports injuries of all. The achilles injury, in the past, has been a death certificate for some players. And that has huge ramifications for both him and the Pelicans.
