    Jrue Holiday hit a 15-foot shot with 1.3 seconds remaining and the New Orleans Pelicans held off the Brooklyn Nets, 105-103 on Saturday night.

    New Orleans' Anthony Davis scored 20 points and grabbed 16 rebounds in his first game back after sitting out with a concussion. Davis started 0 for 10 from the floor before finding his rhythm.

    The Pelicans (18-28) and Davis were helped by Ryan Anderson's 24 points off the bench. Holiday's final shot gave him a team-best 26 points, and he finished with seven assists.

    Brooklyn (12-36), meanwhile, lost for the third straight game and allowed an opponent to shoot 44 percent or better for the 12th consecutive game.

    Brook Lopez scored 33 points and had 10 rebounds to lead the Nets. Wayne Ellington added 18 points.
