It would be pretty embarrassing if we lose this game considering this is their fifth game in six days and the last game of a back to back to back.

The Pels are playing some good ball and making a push before the playoffs, coupled with our injuries, it's going to be a tough game.
N.O. is the betting favorite.

Tough one for me, love the Lakers but the Pels are my second favorite team and are fighting for playoff positioning.

I thought Clippers were your 2nd favorite?

No Ingram, No Hart. No small forwards in other words.

We win if Randle has a monster game and IT/Lonzo hit 3 pointers in crunch time. Not holding my breath on the latter.

Anthony Davis may score 50, but if we win, I'm cool!

I don't like how these recent losses have started in on the court finger pointing and frustration.

Feels like a continued losing streak

Yep I wouldn't care if AD dropped 50 either. Just no injuries and a win. I'd be a happy camper if we manage to take this one.

I think the continued absence of Ingram and Hart will still be too much to overcome for them unless one or both of our PGs snap out of their bricklaying ways for this game.

Doesn't matter if we win or lose at this point. A couple more wins won't make any difference in how FA's will view us. I'd much rather see Lonzo throw up 30 shots and not shy away from shooting like last game. I want to see what we have in Lonzo. Thats a very important piece of our future dynasty.

Pelicans had a pretty taxing game against the Pacers last night, nothing came easy and it was a grind. No excuses for the Lakers tonight.

We're probably losing this one. Idc if it's their 3rd straight. They have AD. And we have a Gleague bench.

Channing Frye will suit up tonight against the Pelicans. He hasn’t played since Feb. 14, also at New Orleans.

They are playing 5th game in 6 days. 3rd day of a back to back to back. We are rested. With our high pace offense we should be able to run them out of the gym.

Agreed, the Laker bench is just too shallow right now without them and you can add Channing Frye. The bench needs some talent (more than just IT).

concur - no better time than now to hone the offensive skill set
