Pelicans top Rockets in season finale
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Tyreke Evans had 25 points and 10 assists, and the New Orleans Pelicans closed out a difficult season with a crowd pleasing 105-100 victory over the playoff-bound Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.
It was the second straight victory for the Pelicans, both starring Evans' relentless hustle and forceful dribble-drives, despite nearly being held out of the low-stakes contests with a bruised right knee. He scored twice in the final minutes as New Orleans took the lead for good in a game that was close throughout.
Austin Rivers added 18 points and Anthony Morrow 15 for the Pelicans, who shot 52.4 percent.
Troy Daniels hit 6 3s and finished with 22 points for Houston, which rested James Harden, Chandler Parsons and Jeremy Lin.
