CHICAGO, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- Jrue Holiday's 3-point play in the waning seconds of the third overtime Monday provided the difference in New Orleans' marathon 131-128 win over Chicago.

Holiday added a free throw and the Bulls' Mike Dunleavy missed a 3-point jumper at the buzzer, giving the Pelicans the hard-fought victory.

Ryan Anderson pumped in 36 points and Eric Gordon added 23 for New Orleans, which completed a three-game road trip sweep.

Gibson had 26 points and 14 rebounds and Dunleavy contributed 23 points, seven rebounds and five assists.
