MILWAUKEE -

Eric Gordon scored 21 points, center Alexis Ajinca added 16, and the New Orleans Pelicans headed home for All-Star weekend with a 102-98 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.

The Pelicans had seven players in double figures and stayed in the game despite foul trouble all night for big man Anthony Davis.

Davis ended up playing the fourth quarter with four fouls.

That helped the short-handed Bucks hang around, and Ersan Ilyasova's 3 with 58.7 seconds left got Milwaukee within 100-98.

After Brian Roberts missed a layup, Milwaukee had one last chance, but got tied up in the backcourt and turned the ball over with 9 seconds left.

Brandon Knight had 22 points and nine assists to lead the Bucks, limited to nine players because of a litany of injuries.
