(WVUE) - Jrue Holiday returned to the Pelicans' lineup Wednesday against the Pacers but was outshone by fellow guard E'Twaun Moore whose 23 points came on 10-of-15 shooting. Anthony Davis led the way with 28, including a clutch fadeaway in the final minute of a 96-92 win.
The win improves the Pels to 42-30, securing a winning record for the first time in Alvin Gentry's tenure. Davis logged 35 minutes for the second night in a row as the team eyes the third leg of their back-to-back-to-back homestand Thursday against the Lakers.
After Wednesday night's results, New Orleans firms up their hold on the 5th seed in the ever changing Western Conference standings.
