NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Nickeil Alexander-Walker scored 21 points, Brandon Ingram returned from a seven-game absence to add 19 and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Memphis Grizzlies 112-101 on Saturday night to snap a nine-game losing streak.

Herb Jones added 17 points, and Jonas Valanciunas and Devonté Graham each had 15.

Valanciunas faced his former team for the first time.
