(NBA) Pelicans work overtime to punish Bulls
(12-03 14:01)

Ryan Anderson scored a career-high 36 points and Jrue Holiday made the deciding 3-point play with 2.6 seconds remaining in triple overtime Monday as New Orleans edged Chicago 131-128 in a US National Basketball Association game in Chicago.
Eric Gordon added 23 points for the Pelicans, who were playing their first game without injured top scorer and rebounder Anthony Davis but were still able to complete a perfect three-game road trip, improving to 9-8.
Britain's Luol Deng had 37 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in a losing cause as the Bulls fell to 7-9. It was Chicago's sixth loss in seven games but the team's first home loss of the season.
Davis, last year's top pick in the NBA Draft, broke his left hand Sunday in New York but the Pelicans – known as the Hornets until this season – took advantage of the best scoring performance in Anderson's six NBA seasons to beat the Bulls.
Holiday, who sent the game into the first extra five-minute period on a jumper with 3.9 seconds remaining in regulation time, finished with 19 points and 12 assists.
