NEW ORLEANS (AP) - -

Ryan Anderson scored 23 points and tied a season-high with six 3-pointers, leading the hot-shooting New Orleans Pelicans to a 116-99 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.
    
New Orleans trailed 71-69 after Milwaukee's Khris Middleton scored 14 points in the first 9 minutes of the third quarter, but the Pelicans responded with a 31-14 run. Jrue Holiday, Toney Douglas, Tyreke Evans and Anderson all hit 3-pointers during that stretch, and Anderson's sixth 3 giving the Pelicans a 100-83 lead with 6:30 left.
    
Anthony Davis had 22 points, seven rebounds and five assists for New Orleans, which hit a season-best 17 of 31 3s. Holiday added 13 points and nine assists off the bench.
    
Middleton and Greg Monroe each scored 22 points for Milwaukee, which had all five starters in double figures but got only 16 points from its reserves. The Bucks have lost two straight.
