INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Not known for being expressive, Jrue Holiday couldn’t help himself when he got hot at the ideal time.

Holiday scored 14 of his 31 points in the final 2:26, including a go-ahead 3-pointer, and the short-handed New Orleans Pelicans beat the Indiana Pacers 124-117 Saturday night.

The key three broke a 108-all tie with 2:26 remaining.

When the forward hit another 3-pointer for a 118-110 lead, Holiday let loose with a spirited scream.
