Bet Tonight’s Lakers vs. Pelicans Game

Due to a rash of injuries, New Orleans will roll out a starting five of Toney Douglas, James Ennis, Dante Cunningham, Alexis Ajinca and Omer Asik, same as the team did on Wednesday. But even when the Pelicans have been at full strength they’ve been unable to beat the Lakers, who could complete a season sweep of New Orleans with a win tonight.
