NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- Tyreke Evans came off the bench to flirt with a triple-double Friday, leading New Orleans to a 105-89 triumph over Denver.

The Pelicans have won consecutive games after losing four in a row. They placed six players in double figures and owned a 17-point lead heading into the final period.
