NEW ORLEANS -- With a big fourth-quarter lead dwindling quickly, Pelicans coach Monty Williams called a timeout and told his team to run a play that would ensure Eric Gordon got the ball. As far as Williams was concerned, it wasnt so much great coaching as common sense, the way Gordon was shooting. Gordon drained a momentum-shifting 20-foot jumper that capped his 25-point outing, and New Orleans held on for its second straight victory, 104-98 over the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night. "Thats the Eric that I know can be an All-Star-type player on a night-in and night-out basis just because hes not afraid to take big shots," Williams said. "We just put the ball in Erics hands and had him make a play. ... Erics really good at reading defences, so he comes out and hits a big shot and then we just got stops when we needed." Gordon hit 10 of 12 shots, including all three of his 3-point attempts. He also made both of his free throws. "Ive shown that I can score at any point during the game," Gordon said. "With me tonight, I was just hitting everything, basically." Jrue Holiday added 20 points and 12 assists, hitting a clutch 3-pointer in the final minute to give New Orleans more breathing room after its 19-point, fourth-quarter lead had been trimmed to six with nearly five minutes remaining. Holiday also did not turn the ball over, and the Pelicans finished with a season-low six turnovers. "Thats a good feeling," Holiday said. "I can go home and go to sleep tonight." Ryan Anderson scored 18 for New Orleans, which has won five of seven games, mostly without power forward Anthony Davis, who broke his left hand in the first quarter of the first game in that stretch. However, New Orleans lost guard Tyreke Evans, who aggravated a recent left ankle sprain on a drive in which he was fouled by Tony Allen the last seconds of the first half. "Just a little tweak," said Evans, who made two free throws after the injury, then sat out the second half. "Hopefully Ill be back next game." Jon Leuer scored 19 and Mike Conley 18 for Memphis, which has lost two straight. Zach Randolph added 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who were done in by a 21-3 Pelicans run that started in the last half of the third quarter. Memphis coach Dave Joerger said defending the Pelicans can be tough when Anderson, Holiday and Gordon are all playing well. "Good team on the perimeter," Joerger said. "There are times where Holiday and Gordon are able to make plays because we were trying to get out to Ryan Anderson so quickly that the gaps become big and those guys take advantage of those gaps." The Grizzlies were as close as 63-62 on Kosta Koufos 6-foot runner halfway through the third quarter, but Randolph went to the bench with his fourth foul soon after. New Orleans then started to dominate, going on a 21-3 run that gave the Pelicans their largest lead at 84-65 early in the fourth quarter. The surge included Gordons layup and 27-footer with a second left in the third quarter. Memphis nearly had an answer, though. Mike Millers free throws began a 15-3 run, which he capped with a 3 to cut it to 94-88 with 4:53 still left. Thats when Williams called timeout and put the game in Gordons hands. After his big shot, Holiday followed with a 9-foot floater, Al-Farouq Aminu sank a pair of clutch free throws and Holiday connected from 3. That put New Orleans ahead 103-93 with 54 seconds left, and Memphis could not recover. "They just hit shots toward the end of the game," Randolph said. "With them two guys -- Holiday and Eric -- in their backcourt, thats a pretty good backcourt, real good. They showed up tonight and hit big shots." Notes: The Grizzlies are 0-6 against Southwest Division opponents. ... New Orleans begins a five-game road trip at Denver on Sunday night. ... Memphis, which shot 50 per cent (40 of 80), lost for the first time in 18 games when shooting that well. ... The Pelicans shot 51.3 per cent (39 of 76). <a href="http://www.officialcanuckspro.com/Customized/">Custom Vancouver Canucks Jerseys</a>.

Bjorn grabbed an eagle and eight birdies to end his round two shots clear of Shane Lowry of Ireland, who shot 64 on the West Course. However, poor weather forced two separate delays totalling nearly two hours in the European Tours flagship event, and darkness halted play with 33 in the 150-man field yet to complete their first round. It is the third occasion in Bjorns 21-year European Tour career hes shot a round of 62, and the Dane rated it the best in his 434 tournaments. "Absolutely," he said. "You cant ask for much more." Bjorn is contesting his 17th BMW PGA, with his best finish being a share of fifth in 1988, and comes after he missed the cut in the Spanish Open last week with 75-78. "Last week was awful, and I was starting to feel a bit frustrated with things, and to be honest in practice, it hasnt been great, either," he said. "So ... today is a little bit surprising. "I havent had the best record here. I havent had the best round here. Its been a long time since Ive actually had any sort of result on this golf course. Its not a place when I come in here, I think, Oh, this is going tto be a great week.dddddddddddd I guess Ive got to start sticking my head down for the rest of the week." Lowry produced his best round since a Carnoustie course-record 64 last October in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. He made only 25 putts with an old putter he found in his Dublin apartment. "I have been messing about here and there with putters, and pulled this one out, got the cobwebs off it," he said. Rafa Cabrera-Bello of Spain was alone in third place with a 65, and Gary Stal of France made the most of his last minute call-up by shooting a 66. Stal was first reserve for the event, and took the place of countryman Victor Dubuisson, who pulled out injured. Rory McIlroys 4-under 68 included holing his second shot for eagle at the par-four seventh hole, and landing his second shot to within six inches for eagle at the par-five 12th. "The two eagles helped, and its a good round for me around this place," he said. "Its a place Ive notoriously struggled on, but it was good to shoot something in the sixties." Henrik Stenson, who can become the new world No. 1 with a good result, also carded 68. However, defending champion Matteo Manassero of Italy slumped to an 8-over 80 that included a quadruple-bogey nine at the 17th. <a href="http://www.chinawholesalejerseysnfl.com/">Wholesale Jerseys</a> ' ' '
