The Lakers continue to operate without LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Things didn’t exactly go as planned against a team like the Phoenix Suns to end the weekend. The Pelicans should offer an easier test for the sans LeBron Lakers. L.A. started Kentavious-Caldwell Pope, Wes Matthews, Dennis Schroder, Markieff Morris and Kyle Kuzma. It was a very small lineup, one that could struggle to contain Zion Williamson. Adjustments may need to be made by coach Frank Vogel heading into Tuesday.
The Pelicans head into NBA Trade Deadline week with a ton of uncertainty. It appears Lonzo Ball could be on the move, which would open up the back court for youngsters Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Kira Lewis Jr. The Pels decision to move Ball may not exactly be a sign that they are going to sell and not make a push for the playoffs. New Orleans is 18-24 and coming off a nice win over the Denver Nuggets. Another big win will help the Pels stay within striking distance of the play-in tournament at 4.5 games back of 8th place.
