LeBron James, Anthony Davis lead Lakers’ dismantling of Pelicans”

"If someone said bet, I'm going to take, you guys know, obviously, I'm going to take myself", Lakers veteran LeBron James said.

Friday, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Kuzma and Alex Caruso combined to make 10 of 13 from deep.

Through 14 games the Lakers hold the fourth ranked offence, first ranked offence and the best net rating league wide, and they've done so without over utilising their two superstars.

It was an odd performance, because the Pelicans shot threes well (at least for a half-plus), but rarely got to the foul line, the opposite of what's happened in most of their 11 games this season. Big time on his part, man. "We had a slow start tonight, but we've been doing it on the defensive end. It just leads to a lot of energy for our ballclub". Caldwell-Pope harassed Ingram enough that he lost control of the ball.

Lakers have a 10-3 record (7-6 ATS, 4-9 O/U) and are first in the whole National Basketball Association. They were listed as 11.5-point dogs against the Clippers, while the Pels suffered three consecutive defeats on the home court as favorites, losing to Charlotte 118-110, OKC 111-110, and IN 118-116.

It was obvious that Alexander-Walker was rattled, as were the Pelicans, because he no longer handled the ball for the rest of the second quarter. The Lakers shot 49.5% from the field and 45.9% from beyond the arc.

It is always a show when LeBron James and Anthony Davis are on the court. With his absence, it will be hard for the pelicans to get going offensively. If those three players perform well, they will provide a tough challenge for the Lakers.

When his night was over, Schroder had been a thorn in the side of the Pelicans. He scored 37 points, had 1 assist, and grabbed 8 boards in 33 minutes.

The Lakers will be mostly at full strength. Ingram's 17 points prior to intermission staked New Orleans to a halftime edge, but was held to three after the break. It could've been a 10-, 15-point differential.
