Frazier, Jones lead Pelicans to blowout win over Hawks
ATLANTA (AP) Tim Frazier had 21 points and 14 assists, Terrence Jones added 17 points and the New Orleans Pelicans won their third straight game with a 112-94 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night.
Pelicans forward Anthony Davis returned to begin the fourth quarter after bruising his right knee and missing the second and third periods. Davis, a three-time All-Star and the NBA's leading scorer, finished with 13 points.
New Orleans led by 20 at the end of the first quarter and never let up.
Dennis Schroder and Kyle Korver each scored 14 for the Hawks, who have lost three in a row. Atlanta was tied for the Eastern Conference lead last week but now begins a five-game road trip playing its worst basketball of the young season.
The Pelicans have won five of seven and are 3-0 since Jrue Holiday returned after missing the first 12 games to be with his sick wife.
