New Orleans
Los Angeles

[LOS ANGELES] — The Los Angeles Lakers played host to the New Orleans Pelicans last night and the Lakers did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 108-96 victory. The win bumps Los Angeles's record up to 26-55 on the season, while the loss drags New Orleans's down to 33-48. Though a win's a win and Lakers fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Cheick Diallo's 19 points, 11 rebounds, 0 assists, 2 blocks and 0 steals in 27 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Unfortunately for Diallo, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Lakers. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get New Orleans back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Lakers in the victory was Brandon Ingram and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Diallo, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Ingram posted 15 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists in the win.

Los Angeles's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Pelicans, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Lakers will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Lakers will be a date with the Golden State Warriors while the visiting Pelicans will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers.
