Davis, Pelicans rally to beat Cavaliers 104-100

Posted: Updated:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Anthony Davis had 17 points and 13 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans erased a 12-point deficit in the final 5 minutes to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 104-100 on Friday night.

Jrue Holiday had 15 points and 11 assists for the Pelicans. Eric Gordon scored 19, including a 3-pointer from the corner with 31 seconds left to give New Orleans the lead for good.

Kyrie Irving, who had 22 points, drove for a potential tying layup with 23 seconds left but lost the ball as he collided with Davis. As the Pelicans' Tyreke Evans corralled the loose ball, Irving took off his protective face mask in disgust, certain he was fouled.

New Orleans then made four free throws in the final 20 seconds to secure the win.
