Watch Jrue Holiday’s game winner for Pelicans to beat Nets


The New Orleans Pelicans have won five-of-six, which not coincidentally has happened just as Jrue Holiday has gotten healthy and played his best ball of the season.

Including hitting this game winner against Brooklyn Saturday night.

The Nets defended this well, Thomas Robinson switched onto him off the pick and didn’t allow him a driving lane, and after a stumble with the ball Holiday had to take a leaning 19-footer over his arms. But it’s a make-or-miss league, and that’s a make.

Holiday had 26 points off the bench in the 105-103 win, Ryan Anderson added 24. Brook Lopez had 33 for Brooklyn.
