It was a split decision for the Pelicans over the weekend.
Jrue Holiday got the best of his former team as the Pelicans put down the 76ers 131-124 at the Smoothie King Center Sunday night. Holiday was 11-of-21 from the field for 34 points and connected on five threes.
Rajon Rondo dished out 18 assists, while Anthony Davis went for 29 and DeMarcus Cousins chipped in an efficient 23 on only 10 shots.
Philadelphia was without star Joel Embiid due to back stiffness. Ben Simmons finished with 27 points, 10 assists and five rebounds.
On Friday, Zach Randolph scored 35 points and pulled down 11 rebounds as the Kings clipped the Pelicans 116-109.
Buddy Hield scored eight points down the stretch, including a 3-pointer with 34 seconds left to force OT. Hield finished with 18 points off the bench and De'Aaron Fox scored 14 in the winning effort. Sacramento won for just the fourth time in 15 road games this season.
DeMarcus Cousins paced the Pelicans with 38 points and 11 rebounds against his former club.
New Orleans is 3-and-3 in its last six to put them at 14-and-13. They're in Houston Monday night to face the Rockets. Tipoff at 7 p.m. in the New Orleans area on News Talk 99.5 WRNO.
