Tyreke Evans leads Pelicans past Nuggets, 105-89

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Tyreke Evans had 19 points and 10 assists, and the New Orleans Pelicans handed the Denver Nuggets their fifth straight loss, 105-89 on Friday night.

Jrue Holiday had 17 points and four steals, causing two turnovers that led to late fast-break points as the Pelicans slammed the door on Denver's comeback bid.

Anthony Davis added 17 points and four blocked shots despite playing sparingly in the first half because of three early fouls.

Wilson Chandler scored 22 points and J.J. Hickson added 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Nuggets, who trailed by 18 in the second quarter but were as close as 93-87 on Quincy Miller's 3-pointer with 2:55 to go.

That's when Holiday found Davis for an alley-oop tip and again for a fast-break basket as New Orleans pulled away for its second straight win.
