The Pelicans have made a lineup change, and it is paying off, handsomely.

Tyreke Evans, starting his third straight game at the small forward spot, scored 25 points in a 124-112 win Friday night at the Smoothie King Center against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Anthony Davis scored 29 points, and pulled down 14 rebounds.

The Pelicans made 8 three pointers, including a three pointer and one from Anthony Morrow in the fourth quarter that gave New Orleans a 100-90 lead.

Murrow scored 16 points off the bench.

Since moving into the starting lineup, Evans has scored 76 points in three games, including 24 against the Lakers Tuesday night and 27 against Sacramento Monday night.

The Pelicans have won two straight after losing eight in a row.

Was it a big win? “Anytime we win, it is a big win,” said head coach Monty Williams.
