Pelicans beat Pistons 103-101 on Gordon's layup

Eric Gordon's driving layup with 1.9 seconds left gave the New Orleans Pelicans a 103-101 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.
Detroit blew a 16-point third-quarter lead, and the Pistons inexplicably didn't call time after Gordon's winning shot.
Instead, Brandon Jennings rushed a shot from midcourt that missed while coach Maurice Cheeks stood yelling for a timeout.
Detroit wasted a 28-point performance from Jennings and 21 points and 20 rebounds from Andre Drummond. Anthony Morrow scored 21 points for New Orleans, which won for only the second time in 11 games.
The Pelicans were without Jrue Holiday, Ryan Anderson, Jason Smith and Tyreke Evans because of injuries.
