Holiday, Cousins, Davis lead Pelicans past Memphis 111-104

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Jrue Holiday dunked as he was fouled by Grizzlies rookie Dillon Brooks, and that was the first sign the less heralded member of the Pelicans' "Big Three" was about to take over.

Holiday made Memphis pay for trying to lock down All-Star big men Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, following his dunk with a pair of layups on penetrating dribble drives, then adding floaters from five and 12 feet.

"Anthony told me to be aggressive. He told me to get to 20 points this game and we would win," Holiday said. "I just listened to the captain."
