NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Anthony Davis had 31 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans came back from a 17-point, second-half deficit to beat the Sacramento Kings 115-112 on Monday night.

Norris Cole scored 23 and Jrue Holiday 20 for New Orleans, which snapped a four-game losing streak. Dante Cunningham added a clutch 3-pointer — just his 40th of the season — to give the Pelicans their first lead of the second half at 111-110 with 36 seconds left.

DeMarcus Cousins had 40 points, 16 rebounds and four steals for the Kings, but also committed five turnovers and missed the only two shots he attempted — both layups — in the final two minutes.

Rudy Gay and Rajon Rondo each scored 18 but Sacramento, which led by 10 with about 6 minutes left, hurt itself with seven turnovers in the fourth quarter.
