New Orleans Pelicans vs Los Angeles Lakers (By: Shlin85)
After a fantastic and unexpected victory against Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers and LeBron James will play in New Orleans against Pelicans today. This is a great and very interesting game because they meet the young Lakers players who were supposed to be replaced with Anthony Davis in trade package. Luckily, or not, depends who you're asking, the trade did not happen in the end and as a result of that, younger Lakers had a lot of mental problems and issues in their game after the trade news went public. It was hard for them to cope with the fact that LeBron wanted to throw them all in New Orleans for one player.
Tonight this should not have anything to do with this game because Los Angeles Lakers are back to 0.500 win percentage and their playoff goal is once again very close. After winning against James Harden and Houston Rockets, I think Lakers can dominate the Pelicans with ease. Kuzma, Ingram and LeBron James are getting better and better and LeBron has started to give it his all because he knows they must hit the top eight playoff spots and there is not much time left until the end of the regular season, they also have the fourth toughest schedule remaining. They play against the home team without much motivation because other Pelicans know that their best player is leaving at summer so I do not see any motivation for this team against motivated visitors that are trying to get in the playoffs, Lakers will win, their motivation and hunger is at a much higher level.
