Davis, Holiday lift Pelicans past Blazers, 113-101
NEW ORLEANS (AP) Anthony Davis had 38 points, nine rebounds and four blocks, Jrue Holiday added 21 points in his first action this season, and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Portland Trail Blazers 113-101 on Friday night.
Holiday made his season debut after missing the first 12 games to care for his wife, retired soccer star Lauren Holiday, who had brain surgery last month only weeks after giving birth to the couple's first child.
Terrence Jones added 15 points, and Tim Frazier had 12 for the Pelicans. They've won three of five after an 0-8 start.
Damian Lillard scored 27 points, and CJ McCollum 24 had for Portland, which has lost three straight. Mason Plumlee added 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Trail Blazers, who never got closer than eight points in the second half.
