Warriors hold off Hornets
New Orleans, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - Eric Gordon's potential game-winning 3- point try rimmed out at the buzzer as the Golden State Warriors survived the New Orleans Pelicans, 102-101, at New Orleans Arena.
The outcome was fittingly decided in the closing seconds after neither team led by more than six points in the final frame.
All five Warriors starters scored in double figures to snap a three-game slide, led by Klay Thompson's 22-point, eight-assist effort. David Lee added 18 points and seven rebounds, Jermaine O'Neal chipped in with 18 and eight and Stephen Curry handed out a game-high nine assists to go with 16 points.
Ryan Anderson paced the Pelicans with team highs of 21 points and 12 boards, but the club dropped its second game in as many nights.
Jrue Holiday and Gordon netted 17 and 16 points, respectively, and the backcourt duo each had seven assists in the setback.
