New Orleans, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - Anthony Morrow scored 12 of his 16 points in the final quarter to push the New Orleans Pelicans to a 112-104 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

"Not taking anything away from individuals, but we go into the game and we have a game against Davis and Tyreke Evans and (Eric) Gordon and guys like that. It's the guys off the bench who end up hurting us," Milwaukee head coach Larry Drew said of Morrow's performance.

Anthony Davis registered 29 points and 14 rebounds, and Tyreke Evans chipped in 25 points and seven assists for the Pelicans, who have won back-to-back contests for the first time in a month.

The Bucks played without forward Ersan Ilyasova. He was suspended one game for punching Sacramento Kings forward Reggie Evans in the stomach in Wednesday's loss.
