CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Brandon Ingram had 25 points and nine rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame 26 turnovers to beat the Charlotte Hornets 115-110 on Saturday night and snap a three-game losing streak.

JJ Redick had 22 points on five 3-pointers and Jrue Holiday added 12 points and 11 assists for the Pelicans (2-7).

Ingram, who was born and raised in Kinston, North Carolina, finished 8 of 12 from the field and had 10 points in the fourth quarter while the Hornets went cold down the stretch.

Charlotte struggled to take care of the basketball as well, committing 22 turnovers, making for a sloppy game.

Devonte Graham led the Hornets with 24 points and 10 rebounds. Terry Rozier, who starts ahead of Graham at point guard, had 18 points. However, both players shot 5 of 14 from the field as the Hornets were limited to 41% shooting as a team.

The Pelicans played without Lonzo Ball, who missed the game with a right abductor sprain.

With the game tied at 95 with five minutes left, Josh Hart knocked down a go-ahead 3 igniting an 11-2 run that figured to be the difference in the game. Hart had 10 points and seven rebounds coming off the bench.
