The Pelicans are 9-23 away while the Lakers are 17-12 at home.
Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans have a record of 27-35 but are only 9-23 on the road. They have just 4 wins in 10 games and coming into tonight’s matchup following a loss on Monday. With 27.6 PPG Davis is keeping the teams head above water. He is also averaging 12.6 rebounds and 2.5 blocks. Point guard Jrue Holiday is responsible for making 7.9 assists and 21 points per games as he offers his talents to the leading lineup. Currently in 3rd place in the Southwest Division it’s hard to say if the Pelicans will make the playoffs and if they get there it’s unlikely that they will make it out of the first round.
The Los Angeles Lakers are 29-31 for the season and 17-12 on their home court. They are not doing well, having only secured 3 wins in the last 10 games. Tonight they will be facing the Pelicans following a 2 game losing streak. They have been supported mainly by LeBron James with a scoring average of 26.8 PPG, 8.8 RPG and 7.8 APG. Regardless of how well James’ stats look, the Lakers starting lineup is not much better than the guys on the bench. It’s going to take more than 1 guy claiming to be the best player in the world for the Lakers to get to the playoff let alone win a championship.
