Unlike Tuesday night when the New Orleans Pelicans built a double-digit first half lead only to see it slip away in the third quarter against the Phoenix Suns, the Pelicans built another double-digit lead and then finished off their opponent in the second half.

The Pelicans rolled to a 99-84 victory against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday at the FedEx Forum, while erasing the heartache of Tuesday's disappointing home loss.

Eric Gordon scored 19 points to lead a well-balanced Pelicans attack. Anthony Davis added 18 points and eight rebounds, while Tyreke Evans had 16 points.

On the strength of a 70 percent shooting first quarter, the Pelicans built a 33-18 lead after the first quarter.

The Pelicans cooled off dramatically in the second quarter, making just 27.7 percent of their shot attempts. But fortunately for them, the Grizzlies were 10-of-22 in the quarter and only managed to close to within 51-41 at halftime.

The Pelicans (2-3) put away any lingering doubts in the third quarter by outscoring the 28-16 in the quarter.

It was the Pelicans' first road win of this young season and the first home loss for a Grizzlies team that played in the Western Conference finals last season.
