The Brooklyn Nets return to action for the first time in 2019 Wednesday when they look for a season split against the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Brooklyn Nets will look to reverse a couple skids Wednesday when they host the New Orleans Pelicans at Barclays Center for a 7:30 p.m. Eastern tip.

The Nets (17-21) have lost two straight games since winning nine of 10 and they have lost three straight to the Pelicans (17-21), including a season sweep last season.

Brooklyn lost on the road Saturday to the Milwaukee Bucks 129-115 before getting a three-day break over New Year’s. New Orleans comes in off a 123-114 win at home over the Minnesota Timberwolves on New Year’s Eve.

Last meeting

Oct. 26 at New Orleans: Jrue Holiday gave the Pelicans the lead on a pull-up jumper from mid-range with three seconds left after a costly D’Angelo Russell turnover and New Orleans scored the final nine points of the game for a 117-115 victory over the Nets.

Brooklyn never got off a final shot.

After Ed Davis was called for a technical foul for a shove/flop by Pelicans forward Solomon Hill near the Nets’ bench during a timeout, Holiday converted the free throw with two seconds remaining and Brooklyn’s inbounds pass was stolen by Anthony Davis to end it.

Russell led the Nets with 24 points and Caris LeVert added 21. Davis grabbed 11 rebounds, Spencer Dinwiddie went for 11 points, five assists and two blocked shots and Jarrett Allen also had a pair of blocks.

Holiday’s 26 points led New Orleans. Davis finished with 18 points, 14 rebounds, four steals and five blocks and Julius Randle chipped in with 14 points and two blocks off the bench.
