(AP) Jrue Holiday scored 14 of his 31 points in the final 2:26, including a go-ahead 3-pointer, and the short-handed Pelicans beat the Pacers 124-117.
New Orleans played without Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson due to injuries. Ingram has a right ankle sprain, and Williamson is dealing with a left ankle sprain.
JJ Redick added 23 points for the Pelicans.
Indiana dropped its fifth straight. Jeremy Lamb led the Pacers with 26 points. T.J. Warren scored 22.
The Pelicans, who started the season as one of the worst in the league, are now five games out of the eighth seed in the Western Conference.
They will host the Portland Trail Blazers tomorrow night at the Smoothie King Center.
