Since Jrue Holiday’s return, the New Orleans Pelicans have been playing like a successful cohesive group, which was something they were unable to achieve at the start of the season when they lost their first eight games.

The Pelicans had little trouble extending their winning streak to three in a row, beating the Hawks 112-94 on Tuesday night at Philips Arena. The Pelicans took a 30-point lead in the second quarter.
