Jrue Holiday has escaped the uncanny rash of injuries ravaging Mark Scheifele Jerseythe Pelicans this season and increasingly looks like the All-Star once was.

Shortly after learning teammate Anthony Davis would miss the rest of this season, Holiday scored 22 points and the downtrodden Pelicans upended the contending Los Angeles Clippers 109-105 on Sunday night.

''I guess from an on-court standpoint,'m going to have to take a lot of the load, directing guys,'' said Holiday, who also had eight assists.

Traded from Philadelphia to New Orleans in 2013, Holiday missed most of the previous two seasons with his own injury problems, but has progressed beyond the minute restriction with which he began his third campaign in New Orleans and is averaging nearly 17 points per game.

With the offense running through Holiday, several role players their best games in a while.

Omer Asik scored a season-high 15 points and tied his season best with 14 rebounds, while Dante Cunningham scored a season-high 19 points. Reserve guard Tim Frazier added a season-high 17 points.

''We did a great job of competing Billy Smith Jerseylike crazy,'' Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. ''At some stage, I thought everyone stepped in and did something that was real positive for the team.''

Chris Paul and J.J. Redick each scored 24 points, and Paul also had 13 assists for the Clippers, who lost in Memphis on Saturday night and were playing their second game in less than 24 hours.

''There are no excuses. There is no fatigue,'' Paul said. ''We lost. No excuses. didn't defend well enough. We waited too late to put our imprint on the game.''

New Orleans' lead got as large as 14 when Holiday drove past Austin Rivers and spun a double-clutch scoop past DeAndre Jordan's outstretched arm for a layup that made it 102-88 with 2:18 left.

The Clippers still trailed by 11 with 1:27 left, but nearly tied it in the span of a minute. Jordan's dunk made it 104-103 and he was fouled on the play, but missed his free throw. In the final seconds, Rivers missed a 3-point shot that would have tied it.
