Pondexter leads Pelicans past Nets, 102-96

NEW ORLEANS (AP) As Quincy Pondexter saw his 3-pointer go down with 49.9 seconds on the clock, he turned up court, allowed a slight smile and pounded his chest with the palm of his hand three times.

The clutch basket as the shot clock wound down gave Pondexter a career-high 25 points and all but sealed New Orleans' third straight victory, a 102-96 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night.

"That's probably why a little emotion came out," Pondexter said. "It was a dagger."
