NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Tyreke Evans had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Memphis Grizzlies 106-95 on Friday night.

Jrue Holiday had 23 points and eight assists for New Orleans, which had four players hit the 20-point mark and led throughout. Anthony Davis had 20 points, nine rebounds and three blocks, and Ryan Anderson, who hit four 3-pointers, also scored 20 points.

Marc Gasol and Mike Conley each scored 19 points for Memphis, while Randolph finished with 11 points and 11 rebounds.

New Orleans hit 10 of 20 3-point attempts, including three 3s for Eric Gordon, who finished with 13 points. The Pelicans had dropped two in a row.
