(WVUE) -

The Pelicans entered Thursday night's contest winless against the Thunder, having lost two contests earlier this season in Oklahoma City, but they emerged victorious in New Orleans, thanks in large part to 78 points from the trio of Anthony Davis, Ryan Anderson and Jrue Holiday.

The home team took the lead in the final minute of the third quarter and kept the lead for the rest of the game, ultimately holding on to win 123-119.

Davis bounced back from his nine point performance Tuesday with 30 points on 11-of-26 shooting from the field. The visitors' duo of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant scored 44 and 32 points, respectively.

Alvin Gentry's squad improves to 16-12 at home, 23-34 overall with the Timberwolves coming to to Saturday for a 6 p.m. tip-off.
