The New Orleans Pelicans (7-6) beat the Houston Rockets (2-11) in SKC on a Saturday night. Zion was the player of the game, scoring 26, 4 and 6.


The Pelicans led by as many as 18 points in the third quarter only to fall behind by eight early in the fourth quarter.


After New Orleans answered with a 16-4 run to take a 106-102 lead on Ingram’s spinning layup, KPJ tied the game at 106 on a drive through the lane with 2:58 left.


New Orleans then scored the game’s final 13 points, with Ingram hitting a pair of free throws and Alvarado nailing a 3-pointer from the left wing for a 111-106 lead. Houston had four turnovers in the final 2:25.


Alvarado had eight of his 12 points in a dominant final quarter to go along with four assists and three steals in the final 11 minutes.


Nance Jr. added 22 for the Pelicans, and Ingram finished with 20.


Williamson was efficient, going 8 of 9 from the field and powering inside at will against a defense that gave him more one-on-one opportunities than usual. He also went 10 of 12 from the line.
