Fournier leads Magic past winless Pelicans, 103-94


Evan Fournier capped a 30-point performance with a pair of 3-pointers in the final 1:13 and the Orlando Magic won for the first time this season, 103-94 over the winless New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night.
Nikola Vucevic added 22 points and Victor Oladipo 12 for the Magic, who, like the Pelicans, entered the contest at 0-3.
Eric Gordon had 21 points for New Orleans, which trimmed an 18-point, first-half deficit to 95-90 with 2:46 to go. Then Fournier helped Orlando put it away.
Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday and Ryan Anderson each scored 14 for the injury-plagued Pelicans, who've given up more than 100 points in all four losses under new coach Alvin Gentry. New Orleans also shot poorly, hitting just 36.6 percent (32 of 90) of its shots.
