JJ Redick put up 24 points for the Pelicans and Jrue Holiday hada double-double with 14 points and 11 assists.

Turnovers plagued the Pelicans again. New Orleans gave up the ball 11 times in the first half, 17 times through the entire game. That sloppy play outweighed Zion's second game with 30+ points. He went 11-for-19 shooting and pulled down six rebounds on the night.
