Brian Roberts scored 12 of his 14 points in the second half, including the go-ahead jumper with 30.6 seconds left, and the New Orleans Pelicans stayed unbeaten in the preseason with a 105-102 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night.

Roberts put the Pelicans in front after Reggie Jackson's driving layup had given the Thunder a 102-101 lead. Anthony Davis added two free throws with 21 seconds left to push the Pelicans' lead to 105-102, then blocked Jeremy Lamb's 3-point attempt with 3.2 seconds left.

Eric Gordon scored 21 points for the Pelicans and Davis finished with 18.

Kevin Durant shrugged off a slow start to score 25 points. He played 32 minutes and did not see action in the fourth quarter.
