Minnesota responded by finishing the half on a 17-6 run to take a 62-49 lead into the halftime locker room. Davis finished with 17 points and five rebounds in 17 minutes of action..

The Pelicans were led by Jrue Holiday, who finished with 27 points, while DeMarcus Cousins had 17

The Pelicans were seeking their 12th victory on the season, a mark that took until Dec. 26th last season to reach. The 120 points given up by New Orleans marks the ninth time in the last 11 games they have allowed over 100 points in a game.

The Pels begin a two game road trip in Utah Friday night.
