Pelicans snap 4-game skid with easy win over Wolves

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Mired in a four-game losing streak and sinking further out of contention in the Western Conference, the New Orleans Pelicans were in desperate need of a confidence builder.

The Minnesota Timberwolves seemed happy to make it easy on them.

Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday scored 27 points apiece, and the Pelicans beat the Timberwolves 116-102 on Monday night for just their sixth road victory of the season.
