(AP) Jrue Holiday and Julius Randle each scored 30 points to rally New Orleans past Utah Monday night, 115-112.

Anthony Davis had 15 points and 11 rebounds in three quarters for the Pelicans. Davis didn't play in the fourth, but New Orleans still won its third straight game.

Jae Crowder and Kyle Korver scored 20 points apiece off the bench to lead the Jazz. Rudy Gobert added 19 points and 19 rebounds, and Donovan Mitchell had 19 points and nine assists.

Utah took a 112-111 lead on Mitchell's layup with 43.9 seconds left. Elfrid Payton answered with a layup on the other end and Randle hit two free throws with 0.9 seconds remaining to close it out.

After trailing most of the way, the Pelicans finally erased Utah's lead late in the fourth quarter as Randle sparked a 22-2 run.

New Orleans faces Utah again Wednesday night at the Smoothie King Center.
