NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Tyreke Evans scored a season-high 33 points and the short-handed New Orleans Pelicans ralled from 22 down in the third quarter, beating the Brooklyn Nets 109-104 in overtime Monday night.

Evans scored 14 as New Orleans closed the third period on a 29-10 run to get back in the game. Anthony Morrow, who did not score until the final 2 minutes of regulation, had 11 points the rest of the way as the Pelicans completed their comeback.

Morrow hit a 3-pointer to give New Orleans a 106-100 lead in overtime and sealed the victory with another 3 to make it 109-102 with 54.5 seconds left.

Anthony Davis added 24 points and 14 rebounds for the Pelicans.

Paul Pierce had 24 points and Deron Williams 23 for the Nets, who lost for the first time in five games after winning at Dallas in overtime Sunday.
