(AP) Rookie guard Trae Young had 33 points and 12 assists for his 24th double-double of the season, leading Atlanta past New Orleans.130-120.
Young finished 12 of 24 from the field, including 5 for 12 from 3-point range, and had one turnover in 31 minutes.
DeAndre' Bembry and Dewayne Dedmon each scored 18 points, and the Hawks shot 19 for 51 from beyond the arc to win their third straight.
Julius Randle led the Pelicans with 24 points and nine rebounds.
Already playing without Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday, the
Pelicans' lineup got thinner when guard Frank Jackson, who scored 20 points in 25 minutes, went to the locker room with a concussion with 7:19 left in the third quarter. He was inadvertently hit in the forehead by John Collins under the basket.
