Poole’s career-high 38 points lead Warriors past Pelicans

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Jordan Poole scored a go-ahead layup with 21.4 seconds left and made two free throws with less than a second remaining on the way to a career-high 38 points despite an ankle injury scare in the third quarter, and the Golden State Warriors held off the New Orleans Pelicans 125-122 on Friday night while Stephen Curry and other stars rested with injuries. Nickeil Alexander-Walker scored 30 points and put New Orleans ahead with 25.9 seconds left, answering Eric Paschall’s basket for the Warriors 33 seconds after his offensive rebound. ”He came back on fire,” Golden State’s Mychal Mulder said of Poole playing on a tender ankle.
