NBA: Pelicans snap five-game losing streak with close win


12-12-2016 15:03 BJT

The league's leading scorer Anthony Davis and his New Orleans Pelicans would roll into Phoenix. Both clubs have struggled this year, and A-D would have an off-night against the Suns, but with his offensive game a no-show, he made up for it with a stellar defensive play in the dying seconds.

The Pellies would trail by 15 in the second half but storm back -- and tie things at 96 after Davis gets fouled on the alley-oop.

Then with about a minute to go -- they take the lead -- Tim Frazier gets the And1. The third-year guard manages a triple-double, his first-ever with 14 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists.

Inside the final minute. Phoenix down two, but Eric Bledsoe goes hard to the rack for the deuce tying it at 110 and we're off to overtime. He had a game-high 28

In the extra session -- Jrue Holiday is able to muscle his way into the lane for the three-point play and give the visitors a 1-point lead.

Three seconds remaining and the hosts down three -- they get the ball to Devin Booker, but his triple is blocked by Davis as the Brow motions that he got a piece of the ball, and the Pellies hold on for a 1-point win to snap a five-game losing skid.

In other action, Golden State rallied from 10 down in the fourth quarter to topple Minnesota. OKC edged Boston, but Russell Westbrook saw his streak of 7 straight games with a triple-double come to an end. He still managed 37 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists in the victory. New York outlasted the Lakers and Philly tripped up Detroit.
