The New Orleans Pelicans took a 2-0 lead in their first-round matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers thanks to some big performances from their best players in Game 2.

Jrue Holiday scored 33 points in Tuesday’s win at Moda Center, including a big dunk and a key three in the fourth quarter. He also added nine assists, finding Anthony Davis more than a few times.

Davis finished with 22 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks, as well as one of the more impressive alley-oop finishes you might see all postseason.

This was all enough to earn a 111-102 road win over the No. 3 seed in the West, giving New Orleans plenty of momentum to potentially win its second playoff series in franchise history.
