Ajinca lifts Pelicans past Heat, 104-102

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Alexis Ajinca's recent form is inspiring so much confidence in the Pelicans that marquee players like Eric Gordon are looking for the 7-foot reserve with the game on the line.

Gordon twice passed to Ajinca in the final minute, and the Frenchman converted at the rim both times, giving him a career-high 24 points and lifting New Orleans to its fourth straight victory, 104-102 over the Miami Heat on Friday night.

"I was just trying to do the right play at the right time," said Ajinca, who set his previous career high of 22 last month in a victory at Toronto. "It happened I was by myself, so Eric threw a very good pass and I just made the basket."
