Pelicans lose Davis and Anderson, roll past Heat 105-91

MIAMI (AP) - -

Eric Gordon scored 16 of his 24 points in the third quarter and, even after losing Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson to injuries, the New Orleans Pelicans had no trouble beating the Miami Heat 105-91 on Saturday night.

Omer Asik scored 15 points and Tyreke Evans added 13 to help the Pelicans snap a four-game slide.

Mario Chalmers scored 20 points for Miami, which was playing for the first time since learning that All-Star forward Chris Bosh will miss the remainder of the season with blood clots on one of his lungs. The Heat made that announcement earlier Saturday.

"It's been very emotional for all of us," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.

Dwyane Wade scored 19 points and Hassan Whiteside finished with 11 points and 16 rebounds for the Heat, who kept the No. 7 spot in the Eastern Conference standings despite the loss.

Goran Dragic, making his Miami debut after being acquired in a trade from Phoenix, had 12 points. He got a crash-course in the Heat playbook about three hours before the game.
