NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Jrue Holiday missed one shot while scoring 24 points through three quarters, and the New Orleans Pelicans set several offensive franchise records in a 139-91 blowout of the reeling Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night.

New Orleans' point total, 56 made field goals, 66.7 percent shooting and 48-point margin of victory all set new franchise records for a game. Their 15 made 3-pointers tied a franchise high.

Holiday was 9-of-10 shooting, hitting both 3s he attempted and all four free throws to go with nine assists. Anthony Davis added 22 points in only 27 minutes, and Austin Rivers scored 17. Ryan Anderson and Tyreke Evans each scored 16.

Andrew Wiggins scored 20 points and Corey Brewer 18 for Minnesota, which lost its fourth straight. The Timberwolves committed 24 turnovers and missed 11 of 14 3-pointers.
