Recap: Philadelphia vs. New Orleans

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Jrue Holiday had 20 points and 13 assists in his return to Philadelphia, and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the 76ers, 121-105, Friday night.

Eric Gordon scored 26 points and had seven assists for the Pelicans. Anthony Davis scored 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Ryan Anderson added 18 points and eight rebounds, as the Pelicans snapped a four-game road skid.

Holiday, who was traded to the Pelicans on draft night, shot 8-of-13 from the field and had seven rebounds. He was Philadelphia's lone All-Star a season ago.

"It's always good to get a win on the road in this league. Coming here tonight against the Sixers was nice. But truthfully, I'm just happy to get the win," said Holiday.

Tony Wroten scored a career-high 24, Evan Turner had 22 and Thaddeus Young added 15 points and 12 rebounds for the 76ers, who have lost nine of their last 11 games.

"We're not even 20 games in yet, so you can't really get too up and down emotionally. You just have to find a way to figure it out and keep working," said Turner.

With 6:32 left in the second quarter Philadelphia saw its last lead of the game following a Spencer Hawes 3-pointer. That gave the Sixers a 43-42 edge. The Pelicans responded with a 15-2 spurt, finished by Davis' layup. Holiday drained a 3-pointer during the run, and came up with a steal that led to a Tyreke Evans dunk.

Philadelphia brought the lead down to 61-55 at the half.

Just 1:51 into the second half the Pelicans went on an 11-0 run to stretch the lead to 76-62. Philadelphia rallied to within five points with 1:55 left in the third following a Turner jumper, but the Pelicans ended the period with an 87-77 advantage.

The Pelicans were ahead as many as 18 in the last quarter.
