New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans just beat the Lakers four days ago. They shot over 52 percent at home and dished out 31 assists. Seven guys scored in double-figures and Cheick Diallo went off from the bench.
The Lakers’ defense never was good and it’s not even as good as it can be with Lonzo Ball out. The Pelicans, for as much of a dumpster fire as they are dealing with, share the ball, run and play hard. That kind of opponent wears on a team that doesn’t like to play defense.
Darius Miller could be back by Wednesday. He missed New Orleans’ last game on Monday, a one-point loss vs. Philadelphia, with an ankle but he’s questionable for this game.
Did you know, the Pelicans and the Warriors are the only two teams in the NBA with three guys who average over 20 points per game? You must count Anthony Davis, of course. Julius Randle is scoring 20.1 per.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers started their post-break schedule encouragingly with that win over Houston. They have dropped two ugly road games since, first the one in New Orleans and then on Monday night in Memphis.
The Grizzlies score 110 in a five-point victory. Mike Conley had 30; Jonas Valanciunas had 20 and Avery Bradley hit for 15. LeBron James had a triple-double but didn’t shoot well. He missed all four of his threes and finished 8-for-23 from the field.
The Lakers’ bench was also ineffective. Rajon Rondo did a lot of dribbling and the three shooters went a combined 1-for-6 from three, that is to say Mike Muscala, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and Josh Hart.
Lonzo Ball has a bone bruise in his ankle and he still hasn’t played for over a month now. He won’t come back until next month, sometime.
