PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jrue Holiday had 20 points and 13 assists in his first game as a visiting player against his former team, leading the New Orleans Pelicans to a 121-105 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night.

Eric Gordon scored 26 points and Holiday added seven rebounds as the Pelicans (7-8) snapped a four-game road skid.

Holiday, an All-Star last season for the Sixers, was sent to New Orleans in a summer trade that netted Philadelphia No. 6 overall pick Nerlens Noel and a future first-rounder.

Tony Wroten scored 24 points on 9-for-13 shooting off the bench, and Spencer Hawes contributed 12 points and nine boards for Philadelphia. Wroten (lower back) and Hawes (knee) both played for the first time in three games, but the 76ers lost for the ninth time in their last 11.
