NEW ORLEANS — Lonzo Ball led Pelicans to a victory Tuesday night, keeping New Orleans in striking distance of a postseason spot. 

Ball hit seven 3-pointers and capped a 33-point performance with a step-back jumper and four clutch free throws in the final 25.3 seconds to lift the Pelicans to a 108-103 victory over Golden State. 

Stephen Curry had 37 points, but missed a deep jumper that could have given the Warriors a late lead. 

Williamson had 23 points and 12 rebounds. 

Ball's big night came 24 hours after he missed 15-of-18 shots in a loss to the Warriors. 

Next up for New Orleans, a road matchup with the 76ers on Friday night at 6 p.m.
