(AP) The Pelicans are still searching for their first preseason win after falling to the Atlanta Hawks 116-102 Monday night.
Anthony Davis led New Orleans with 16 points and grabbed seven rebounds in 17 minutes, and Jrue Holiday hit 3 of 4 from 3-point range and finished with 13 points. Julius Randle had 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting and grabbed seven rebounds.
DeAndre' Bembry had 20 points, five rebounds and four assists and John Collins scored 18 points for Atlanta. Rookie Trae Young had 11 points and eight assists, but was just 5-of-16 shooting.
Jahlil Okafor (ankle), Darius Miller (biceps), Nikola Mirotic (Achilles) and Alexis Ajinca (quadriceps) did not play.
New Orleans shot just 36.5 percent (38 of 104) from the field, including 8 of 39 (20.5 percent) from behind the arc.
The Pelicans (0-2) travel to New York to play the Knicks on Friday.
