Recap: New Orleans vs. Philadelphia

New Orleans, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Anderson had a game-high 26 points on 6-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc in his season debut as the New Orleans Pelicans routed the Philadelphia 76ers, 135-98, at New Orleans Arena

Anthony Davis had a near triple-double with 13 points, nine rebounds and eight blocks, while former Sixer Jrue Holiday netted 14 points with 12 assists.

Darius Morris led the Sixers with 20 points and Tony Wroten, who started in place of injured rookie Michael Carter-Williams for the third straight game, added 19 points.

"Fortunately, today was more misses for them," Holiday said. "We got a lot more stops and shared the ball really well."

Carter-Williams is nursing a bruised arch in his left foot.

New Orleans ended the first quarter on a 20-7 run spurred by Anderson, who had 10 straight Pelican points in a 2 1/2 minute span toward the end of the frame, to take a 34-22 lead at period's end.

Anderson missed the Pelicans' first nine games due to a broken toe in his right foot.

New Orleans began the second quarter in similar fashion as it ended the first, outscoring the Sixers 20-7 through the first six minutes of the second stanza to go up by a 54-29 count.

The lead swelled to 61-31 after Davis hit two free throws with 4:24 left in the first half and the flood gates were opened.

Philadelphia trailed 67-46 at the break and New Orleans' second-half lead grew to as many as 39.

Eric Gordon scored 19 points for New Orleans, while Brian Roberts tallied 14 off the bench on 3-of-5 shooting from 3-point range in the win.

Spencer Hawes scored 14 points for Philadelphia, while Thaddeus Young and James Anderson added 11 apiece.

"They were using their own strategy against us," Young said. "They did a pretty good job of just pushing the basketball."
